Feeling bored at church? Well, have we got a solution for you! Satan! No, no. JK.
This week I'm presenting a piece from Youth Radio Vermont, a shortie. It's this really candid and immature sounding interview with a kid who thinks church is boring, harasses a Mormon missionary, and goofs around about being a Satanist. But when you listen closely there's like, A LOT going on between the lines. You can hear the defense mechanism engaging. Jesus-loving step-dads, mother's dying of cancer, Goths and drugs, needing a free meal. But the kid is just endearing and giggly and the same with the interviewer, Charlotte Carr.
The sound quality is also top notch, sounds great in headphones. You feel like you are there with them.

This piece was part of a larger series on people's personal relationships with religion and spirituality. Listen to the rest of them on Youth Radio Vermont's PRX page.
