This week we talk to one of our friends and musical favorites, singer/songwriter Derek Webb. Derek's new album, I Was Wrong, I'm Sorry and I Love You, just came out, and if you haven't heard it yet, you can stream it right now over at The Drop (and then you should go buy it). We also go inside the brand new issue of RELEVANT, featuring Joel Houston of Hillsong United, Steve Carell, Gungor, Over the Rhine and so much more. Plus, the crew gets an education on Larping, the most popular Yahoo question searches and the upcoming cast of Dancing With the Stars. Note: these are not topics to bring up on a first date.
