In this episode, we pay tribute to that which comes before the morning, with a celebration of "Stay Up All Night Night" coming up on May 10th! Yawn all you want, but stay awake! Join the Reverend Jeff Smith as he explores the history of "Stay Up All Night Night," the discrimination night-owls suffer, the benefits of being a night-owl (there are many), why we may, in fact, learn better in the evening than in the morning, and some personal musings on the life of a displaced night-owl!

If you’re like most people, you’re utterly sick of the complete lack of honesty that exists in the world today. Whether it’s companies using misleading language on their products (Blueberry Muffins, contain no blueberries) or politicians being incapable of telling the whole truth of a situation, our lives are utterly inundated with a world of people and companies trying to sell us a line. Join the Rev for a celebration of Honesty Day, Monday, April 30th, which exists to encourage people from every walk of life, and especially those in charge, to try being honest with their constituents and customers. He'll talk about the history of the day, why honesty is so important in the modern world, why society won't function without trust, the truth about lying, and the Rev discusses why honesty truly is his best policy!

Alright Browncoats, it’s time to go out into the black and gather up those lost souls who have yet to experience the wonder that is Firefly. Firefly Day, April 24th is dedicated to shameless pandering of our beloved show, and indulgent marathon watching of the series from beginning to end. After all, we have to keep spreading the signal or people may never know the dangers of Reavers, or the real story behind the Hero of Canton. The Rev'll be talking about the day, the story behind the entire Firefly series, how the program came to be, why the fandom is even stronger now, a decade and a half later, and the Reverend will reveal how Firefly actually changed his life.

Tuesday, April 24th, is Amateur Radio Day! Long before the invention of the World Wide Web, when instant communication was a dream and a postal letter was actually considered a pretty speedy way to communicate (outside of the phone), there were a group of pioneers who were working on a dream of world-wide communication, and anticipating the joy of communicating with people all over the world instantly. Amateur Radio Day reminds us of these great pioneers, their modern descendants, and how radio has been serving a worldwide community for well over 100 years.

Monday, April 9th, begins National Experience Week, which celebrates the idea of imagining, and then experiencing, all the things we've ever wanted to do or feel, and to donate experiences to those we love as well! The Reverend Jeff Smith looks at the history of the celebration, the different type of experiences we as humans can go through, how to make each and every experience something enriching to our lives, how making a "reverse bucket list" can help make you a happier person, and the Rev shares his personal viewpoint on the importance of learning from all our experiences, not just the good ones!

Although he was called away for another Sunday morning event, he left a brand-new episode for everyone, focusing on the two holidays that share the 1st of April in 2018. He'll talk a little about the history of April Fools Day, and then the rest of the program is about Easter, including traditions from various countries around the world, the pagan origins of the holiday, why you shouldn't adopt a bunny for Easter (unless you're REALLY committed to taking care of him or her and making that rabbit a permanent part of your family), and he'll be sharing some thoughts on Easter as a modern holiday as well!

Tuesday, March 20th, is the International Day of Happiness. This Day was introduced by the General Assembly of the United Nations during 2012 and was celebrated for the first time in 2013. As the Reverend, Jeff Smith, says, "Now, we could go all fluffy and just do a completely brainless, feel-good show about this topic, but I think you deserve better than that, and I hope that you long-time listeners have come to expect more than that from me as well. We're going to talk about happiness from a scientific standpoint, discuss one of the newest areas of psychology related to happiness, examine some deliberate choices you can make to become consciously happier as a person, and I'll share some of my thoughts on the role of happiness in life at the end."
