1 - You Can Be the President, I’d Rather Be the Pope
S04E01: Weird pope facts and the bizarro world that is Vatican City/the Vatican/the Holy See.
First: If you’re unfamiliar with the Prince song “Pope,” we highly recommend going down that weird rabbit hole. It’s where we got the title for this episode. We’ll wait…
Okay! Now that you have that cheery bit of mood music under your belt, let us take you on a somewhat questionable trip through the land of papal frippery, where we’ll discover the truth about the pope hammer, stop for a look at the holy tiara, marvel at the the Swiss Guard’s jaunty outfits, and then meet a robot pharmacist that honestly sounds pretty great. We’ll also talk about the antipopes. Because antipopes are, apparently, a thing.
Fair warning: If you don’t want to hear us yelling about religion, this probably isn’t the episode for you. For obvious reasons.
