As always, this is a casual conversation in which we'll most likely misstate things or get some things wrong. Whenever anyone talks about GOD, always be like the Bareans and DYOR.

Welcome to GODPILLED, a discussion with artists, thinkers, fringe twitter people on how they found GOD, why they’re interested in GOD, and the projects they're working on that either honor or pull inspiration from GOD.
