Anthony, Nick, and E. Antony welcome back Michael Perilloux and invite P.T. Carlo from Thermidor Magazine to talk about the modern problem of “chronic kinglessness”, as well as the spiritual and logistical roles of Christ the King. The panel also takes some time to hash out a few public disagreements.
