Please join Brothers Rhit Moore, Grant Gates, and Gabriel Jagush this week as we sit down with our special guest, Worshipful Master-elect of Arlington Lodge #438, Brother Corey Harris. Brother Corey is getting ready to be installed in the east in a few days and we wanted to pick his brain for a bit. What does Corey want to get done this year? What is the history of Arlington #438? Who are those guys wearing the weird(er) hats at the Scottish Rite dinners? What sound awakens the slumbering Sam Gibbins? All this and more, this week!

Please join us for our newest "Fraternal Spotlight" episode. Brothers Rhit Moore, Grant Gates, and Gabriel Jagush sit down to chat with Right Worshipful Brother Brad Billings, 2017 District Deputy Grand Master, Masonic District #64B of the Most Worshipful Grand Lodge of Texas! In this episode, we get to know Brother Brad a little better, and we ask him a lot of questions. From his Blue Lodge experiences, to who his influences are, to the whole "Scottish Rite vs York Rite" discussion (and why there shouldn't be a "vs" in there), to obscure invitational bodies, there's a lot to cover. We will definitely have to have Brad back for Round 2. Maybe Rounds 3 & 4, too. What's Brad been up to lately? What's the deal with chartering bodies? What do we need to do right now in order to survive & thrive as a fraternity? What's the deal with the super-exclusive invitationals? How should one best tackle the search for additional light? All this, and more, in this episode.

This is one of our longest episodes, so we have omitted news & events for the sake of time. Thank you for understanding.

The dreaded DUES discussion. Please join Brothers Rhit Moore, Grant Gates, and Gabriel Jagush as they sit with special guest, Brother Matt Fisher. When it comes to keeping lodges financially happy, it often seems like something is going sideways - what's up with that? Is your lodge financially healthy? What can you do to get yourselves stable, and then fortified after reaching stability? Is there a need for a "lodge exit plan?" Let's talk about that. This week's episode skips news/events in favor of content length.
