Episode 1: The Tornado Proof House
Prayer and the peace it produces during troubling times.
The destructive force of tornadoes has long struck fear into the hearts of humanity. Their winds, which can exceed 250 miles an hour, can rip strong-frame houses from their foundations and throw heavy objects like cars for hundreds of feet. But one man named Buckminster Fuller designed a strange-looking house called the "Dymaxion Dwelling Machine" which was immune from the destructive force of tornadoes because of its unconventional design. In the same way, God has designed us to withstand severe pressure in ways that go against conventional thinking.
Episode 2: Saved By Road Signs
The power of the Bible.
Words are a powerful influence of change. This was true when a man named Allen Odell saved his dad's "Burma Shave" company from financial ruin by creating a series of silly rhyming signs along America's two-lane highways. Though critics said it would never work, the plain-English words written on these low-tech signs created a national marketing frenzy that sold millions of jars of shaving cream. But the power of the words on the Burma Shave signs pale in comparison to the power of God's words to us in the bible. Reading them produces a supernatural change in our lives.
Episode 3: Glorious Radio Signals
How God speaks to us and how to better hear His voice.
Radio signals are in the air all around us. However, we can't hear those signals unless we have the right detection equipment. This detection equipment can be surprisingly simple: an antenna to receive the signal, a diode to convert the signal into sound, and a speaker that makes the sound audible. Hear how one man changed civilization by inventing the art of "broadcasting" among this simple radio equipment. Similarly, God is always speaking to us. But we often can't hear His voice because we don't have the right detection equipment. As it turns out, the solution is simple.
Episode 4: Hollywood's Strangest Twist
The art of living according to biblical simplicity.
For most, the name "Hollywood" conjures up images of a golden land of palm trees filled with enough celebrity mischief to fill thousands of tabloids. But this is nothing like the Hollywood imagined by its founders, Harvey and Daeida Wilcox. In 1887, this prohibitionist couple from Kansas established the town of Hollywood, hoping it would be a quiet and simple place free from saloons, gambling, and movie houses. And it existed that way until a dire water shortage changed everything. And, as they say, "there went the neighborhood." In the same way, God designed our world to be a simple contentment. But that plan was interrupted. Regardless, God still allows us to find contentment amid the chaos through the biblical practice of simplicity.

"Parables from Pop Culture is truly a rare delight. I've watched the episodes several times with my young children and my elderly Father. Also, many friends have had a chance to view the episodes. From the captivated view of a child to the nostalgic view of a senior adult, all were highly entertained and moved by the episodes. I applaud the imaginative creators at Bungalow Media for stepping outside the formulaic Christian media that too often awkwardly attempts to be cooler than the culture. Not so here! The content and the production style of Parables from Pop Culture is thoughtful, heartfelt and timeless. Bravo!"
