Let's talk about social media! Brothers Rhit Moore, Grant Gates, and Gabriel Jagush talk with our special guest, Brother Kyle Wahlquist, the administrator of the Texas Freemasons Facebook page, as he joins us to talk about building, maintaining, and using an online presence in relation to the Craft. Brother Kyle has some pretty great insight on the subject and we really recommend listening this episode if you are trying to establish a digital lodge presence! What makes Kyle tick? What does it meant to use social media as a 21st Century Mason? How do you effectively use social media as a lodge tool? How do you safely use social media?

Part three of three! Here we take a look at the Blue Lodge degree that receives the least love but has the most to offer in terms of learning. The Fellowcraft degree is deep and rich - it's hard to discuss it outside a tyled lodge, so we'll be talking in generalities for the most part. What do you do with so much knowledge? What's the best way to look for light? Let's tackle this. Please join Brothers Rhit Moore and Gabriel Jagush as they discuss the Fellowcraft degree.

Let's reel it WAY back. You've been initiated as a Mason... Where do you go from here? We've decided to expand our episode, "I'm Finally a Master Mason - Now What?" to include the Entered Apprentice and Fellowcraft degrees. While the path is narrower, and more-clearly defined, it's often difficult to get the best mileage out of these two degrees. Please join Brothers Rhit Moore, Grant Gates, and Gabriel Jagush, as they discuss just some of the many ways you can make the most out of being an Entered Apprentice.Let's reel it WAY back.

So, you're a master mason now. Where do you go from here, and what's in it for you? Please join brothers Rhit Moore and Gabriel Jagush as they try and tackle the challenge of leaving the structured safety of going through the degrees, and getting lost in the world of the travelling man. Sure, the world is your oyster, but how do you take advantage of that? What's your motivation to keep going? How do you go through that process? Where do you find value in Lodge? How do you best use your Masonic career as a learning tool? How do you master yourself? We'll tackle all this and more on this episode. We'll also address some questions about last episode's content!

Join Brothers Rhit Moore, Grant Gates, and Gabriel Jagush as they sit down to discuss "The Laws of the Grand Lodge of Texas, A.F. & A.M.," colloquially known as the "Grand Lodge Law Book." This is an essential read for any Texan Mason, as is the respective law book for our brothers in other Jurisdictions. Gabe has a lot of questions, and Rhit and Grant have a lot of answers. Can you get in trouble for suggesting changes to the rules? Are you allowed to be a Communist and join a Masonic Lodge in Texas? Who's in charge of the rules, anyway, and what happens when you break them? Learn the answers to these questions, and more, in this episode!
