It's dangerous to go alone, take these: Regalia of the Grand Lodge of Texas and the weirder link, Polygrams and Polygons.

Please join Brothers Rhit Moore, Billy Hamilton, and Gabriel Jagush as they discuss the Masonic aprons found in the Grand Jurisdiction of the Most Worshipful Grand Lodge of Texas. What's up with the plain white apron? Why is everything bigger in Texas? What gives with the super odd-looking Grand Master's apron?

Please join Brothers Rhit Moore, and Gabriel Jagush as they discuss one of their favorite books - "The Initiatic Experience" by Brother Robert Herd. It's a really great book, and it's a quick read. How does ancient ritual affect our modern practices? What's the point of ritual in the first place? How do we best convey a meaningful Masonic experience?

Please join Brothers Rhit Moore, Billy Hamilton, and Gabriel Jagush as they discuss the Fibonacci Series and the Golden Ratio! We're finally breaking the ice of sacred geometry, and still only just scraping the surface. It's a wonder this hasn't come up sooner! What's the Golden Ratio? What's up with nautilus shells? Is the human body proof of Divine designs? Are the colors of the Royal Arch Veils a reference to something else? All this, and more!

Let's talk about symbolism! Please join Brothers Rhit Moore, Gabriel Jagush, and Billy Hamilton as they discuss some of the non-secret symbols from the Master's degree. How does all of this tie into the Craft? Is Gabe reaching too far to find symbolism? What's up with all of the historical inaccuracies in the description of the 47th Problem of Euclid? What the heck are all these symbols that aren't familiar to our brethren outside of the Preston-Webb framework? All this, and more!

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?
