1. Wade and Mike welcome Dr. Andrew Schmiege making it a three Michigander episode. Dr. Schmiege teaches Spanish at Wisconsin Lutheran College. A true renaissance man, Dr. Schmiege, interests are wide as shown in his dissertation topic which dealt with Christian and Islamic polemics in early modern Spain.
  2. On episode ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY-SIX Mike and Wade are joined once again by Dr. Aaron Palmer from the history department at Wisconsin Lutheran College. Before getting to the American Revolution, which is Dr. Palmer's area of expertise, the guys ask and answer the question: In what age of history would you least/most like to have lived? in the Free-for-All.
  3. In the TWENTY-FIFTH episode in our Wingin' It series on the life of Martin Luther, Wade and Mike keep on with their discussion of the life of Luther. This time they are discussing Luther's time at the Wartburg castle, or should one say Junker Jörg's time at the Wartburg castle.
  4. Mike and Wade sit down in Wade's backyard once again, this time to discuss Saints (and many of the different ways we use that term). They are joined for the Free-for-All by Sophia (Wade's youngest daughter) to discuss favorite Bible characters.
  5. This time around Mike sits down with Dr. Braun to discuss the history of Lutheranism in America.
  6. God has forgiven you. That is an objective fact. You can reject it, but it is nevertheless true.
  7. On episode TWENTY-ONE of Let the Bird Fly! the guys welcome Professor Sheena Finnigan to discuss the value of history (spoiler alert: she’s a professor of history).
  8. On episode NINETEEN of Let the Bird Fly! the guys clear the studio and just have a good ol’ conversation with themselves (no guests or kids around this time).
  9. On episode FIFTEEN of Let the Bird Fly! we welcome Dr. Aaron Palmer, who holds his M.A. in History from Marquette University and his Ph.D. in History from Georgetown University.
  10. On episode FOURTEEN of Let the Bird Fly! we welcome Dr. Mark Braun back to discuss Lutheranism in America, and especially the split between the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod and the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (and, as Professor Teigen would point out, the split also involved the Evangelical Lutheran Synod).
  11. On episode Five of Let the Bird Fly! we welcome Dr. Mark Braun to discuss the intertestamental period.
