Episode 082 - Opera Singer Barry Banks


Hello! On this episode we're trying out some new things. Our guest this week is opera singer, Bro. Barry Banks. In a pre-recorded interview, Pete catches up with Barry in Philadelphia, where he is currently appearing at the Academy of Music. They chat about how he got his start in Freemasonry, his career, and the finer points of audio-centric architechture. We debut two new segments, Bad Advice/Good Advice, a segment based on listener questions and from Tim, Secretary's Tip from the Crypt. Also on this episode we hear about Jack's double-near-drowning, the Lodge Business Brief with Bro. Jim Stephens, the news, and a repeat Unlocking Symbols from Symbologist Michelle Snyder. We wrap up with the upcoming Masonic schedule followed by chickens. Enjoy!
