God, That's Funny!
Colorado College’s Cornerstone Arts Week begins Monday, February 4th. This year, the series explores “the ways in which humor and the arts create bridges between cultures, belief systems, and yes–even political parties.” Today we bring you a special preview of one of next week’s featured events: a panel discussion among Wiretap host Jonathan Goldstein, author Firoozeh Dumas, and CC’s very own, Steven Hayward, entitled “God That’s Funny: Religion, Humor, Politics & Identity.” We invited Hayward into the studio to have a conversation with David Weddle, a religion professor at CC, about the cultural and spiritual lessons that religious jokes can teach us. Listen to their discussion below, and then check out the rest of the offerings at the Cornerstone Arts Week.
