Mere Fidelity – Satire: Its Uses & Abuses (w/ Karen Swallow Prior)

Mere FiSatire has been around for a while. It’s taken a new life, especially, through the rise of sites like The Onion. But it has been something of a hot topic lately for Evangelicals with the rise of the new site, The Babylon Bee. So we decided to have a little chat about it with our friend and literary expert, Karen Swallow Prior. This was a very fun show and I think you’ll enjoy it.

We mention Jonathan Swift’s famous essay “A Modest Proposal” on this show,  as well as this analysis of ‘punching up’ in American comedy.

If you enjoy this, please feel free to tweet, share, etc.

Soli Deo Gloria
