  8. The Origin and History

    The origin and history of the scapegoat is truly fascinating, and if you haven’t dug deeper into its past, we greatly encourage you to look. Thank you to everyone who has written about us. We’re glad you agree he’s one special little guy.

  9. If we do this again, please email us your suggestions of where, how, and who to spread the word to and what else you’d love to see us do with the goat.

    Our hope is that we not only got you to laugh, but also helped you push your own goat towards the desert. Or rather, encouraged you to work on offloading your sins.

  10. We wish you all a meaningful fast starting tomorrow night, and look forward to sharing future G-dcast Projects with you.

    To be notified of future G-dcast projects, please
