Karen and Bonnie

Karen FonzieKaren is a writer and teacher. At 20, she became a missionary, traveling to Haiti, Jamaica, Dominican Republic, India, Australia, and Thailand. She’s had preachers lay hands on her to cast out the “demon of intellectualism.” She and her family live in the rusted buckle of the Bible Belt where she is rather unpopular. You can find her at www.karenalea.com and on Twitter.

Bonnie moved home to Florida’s east coast after living in the bubble of New York’s upper west side. Before that she was an entertainment exec in LA, saw how the sausage was made and fled. In LA she got used to saying “Happy Holidays” and still thinks it’s more inclusive. She watches too much Dateline and genuinely wishes she didn’t think so many people were full of shit.

  1. Ladies – found you down the Reddit-hole!
    And boy am I glad 🙂 You two are hilarious and being the podcast whore that I am, I binge-listened to the first 4 episodes yesterday and had so much fun! I wish I were clever and funny. Unfortunately, I’m one of the serious ones. I’m looking for community as I just started a blog. 1 week old. THANK YOU for being you and for your unique and much-needed take on the craziness that is organized religion. I’m an ex-pentacostal non-denominational one. We were better than all y’all because we weren’t religious. We were spiritual. We did the YWAM mime gig. We held rock-concert like worship services and had full-on performing arts ministry. I’ll see about coming up with a funny story to share. In the mean time – I LOVE you!!!! Keep it up, ladies – you are therapy 🙂


  2. I thought I posted a reply. Is this one of those things where it doesn’t show until approved? If you didn’t get a reply before this one, let me know and I’ll repost. In the mean time – you two are THE BOMB!!!!
