Episode 174 - Revenge of the Nicks (Part 2)

  • Opening: Cover of the Rolling Stone (Dr. Hook & the Medicine Show)
  • Bro. Nick Johnson (/u/millennialfreemason) returns for Part 2 of hanging out After Lodge
  • Also . . . the usual crew + Tony; oh, and Nick, Jr.
  • Harlan announces his plans for "edutainment" at the next Lodge meeting
  • The statue nazis target Ill. Albert Pike. It's not funny anymore
  • Harlan goes on the defense for General Lee (and mis-speaks, Lee has a building named for him at U.S.M.A., not a monument)
  • Confederate soldiers were just men like you and I answering the call of their country, otherwise they would be cowards not worth remembering
  • Nick turns the conversation to the "deification" of Albert Pike in the Scottish Rite. Conclusion: there isn't any.
  • A sneak peak of Nick's next blog post
  • The merits of high population Lodges vs. low population Lodges (i.e. Traditional Observance)
  • Tony shows up, on the run from his protest participation
  • Why you should (or shouldn't?) hire another Mason
  • We finally make Bro. Johnson spill the drama about his exit from The Masonic Roundtable (and are greatly disappointed)
  • Closing: Mama Tried (Merle Haggard)
