Kingdom Pen Radio #1 – The Ultimate Canadian Love Story

KPR_EP1_post

 

Yo guys.  Welcome to Kingdom Pen Radio.

 

In the inaugural episode of Kingdom Pen Radio, Daniel and Ezra map out an ancient Canadian love story, bash Hunger Games, give away a t-shirt, recite a culturally inaccurate Canadian poem, and generally make a mess of whatever professional reputation this show was intended to have.  But hey, this is what writers at work look like.  Abandon expectations, all who enter here . . .

 

Kingdom Pen Radio will release new episodes every Monday from now until they strap Daniel onto a platform and lock him away in a padded room some 20,000 leagues under the sea.  Once that happens, episodes will premier on Tuesdays.

Kingdom Cinema will seek to be a hub for Christian creators and filmmakers where they can post their videos, gain an audience, and connect with like-minded Christians filmmakers. It is also our wish that Kingdom Cinema will provide powerful, wholesome, and entertaining Christian films for the enjoyment and spiritual growth of our viewers.
