Show Notes, June 20, 2017
Welcome everyone to the June 20th edition of Dead Reckoning Radio! I am your host, Jay Friesen joined around the table by Hadley Heath Manning and Dr. Brian G. Mattson. DR Radio is where we discuss the latest in cultural topics from a distinctly Christian worldview.
Today’s show is going to be another 5-star rated show, our entire first segment is going to be nothing but quick takes. There’s a lot to comment on so we’ll do it. After the break we’ll be diving into a few very disturbing things about the attempted murders on a Virginia baseball field. And finally, Hadley is going to close the show during DR Recommends. As usual, we’ll be taking a couple breaks to hear from our sponsor, followed by games of wit and whimsy, with today’s selections being: Nerd v. Nerd and in honor of today marking the 73rd anniversary of D-Day, a game of Who Am I? The WWII Edition.
We do want to thank today’s sponsor: Alliance Defending Freedom- Defending your right to freely live out your faith! You can find out more at We’ll be hearing more from them at the break.
