In this episode Christopher interviews Christian Pastor Corey Richardson. This is the kickoff of Brutal Planet's "Discussions Series" in which Christopher will have discussions with individuals with a different halakha than himself or whom wish to debate Christopher's take on various issues.
However, this first episode was not a debate but rather an agreeable discussion in terms of how Lapid Judaism should be bridging the gap with our Christian brethren.

5778 Teaching: Should We Be Anti-Greek (A Response to the 5776 Teaching I Did)
(NOTE: The mp3 audio quality has been severely compromised, the XLR mic was not being picked up by the laptop, and it ended up recording through the external microphone on the MacAir, this was not discovered until it was being mixed. I tried to up the quality as best I could through noise reduction, normalization and adjustments in the bass and treble. My apologies. The mp3 is definitely listenable but it is also not up to the usual standard and may not be aired on the radio affiliates because of the significantly lower quality)
One of the most controversial Torah Portion teachings Christopher has ever done. Christopher discusses how the golden calf represents assimilation and allowing outside influences to gain ground within Judaism according to our Messiah and the Sages. Christopher discusses how the Hebrew Roots Movement has resurrected many golden calves by breaking away from the ancient halakha and making their own through greek thinking. Christopher discusses how they have done this through many instances and how it is time to get back to the ancient times. He also discusses how Greek Primacy has influenced us and he presents the evidences for Aramaic and the Khabouris Codex.
Christopher analyzes the failed formula of unilateral eccesiology, which it's premise doesn't allow spiritual maturity it is also why there are hundreds of fractions of the hebrew roots and messianic communities. It is also why the Christian faith has 10s of thousands of denominations. Christopher discusses bilateral ecclesiology and why he endorses the premise based on scholarship in both Christianity and Judaism as well it's application.
Part 1 (Recorded 2/23/18)
Part 2 (Recorded 2/24/18)
Christopher focuses on two aspects of this week's Torah Portion. The light of the menorah and how the commentary of Rebbe Nachman relates to the words of Yeshua. He also discuses why it is we suffer, and why the Midrash Rabbah talks of the crushed olives and what that means to the believer.
The Anti-Missionaries claim that Jews don't need an intermediary or a mediator and that it is not a Jewish concept. Yet the Torah and the practices of Breslov and Chabad say much differently in terms of Rebbe Schneerson and Rebbe Nachman being seen as the intermediary. Christopher discusses this as well as where Messianics and Hebrew Roots types have adopted replacement theology in terms of the concept of Melchizedek, though Messiah Yeshua was a shadow of Melchizedek to say "he was the Melchizedek priest in the flesh in the book of Genesis causes major issue and is incorrect, as well as the concept that Melchizedek was a replacement of the Aaronic priesthood. Christopher talks about how both of these priesthoods are still valid, at the same time not one is replacement of the other.
These teachings are by Christopher Fredrickson and air on 2 Christian radio stations as well as Yeshiva Radio. In Brutal Planet, Christopher discusses the ties of the New Testament with Rabbinic Judaism.
