My So-called Jesus

Yeah, Mary Magdalene knew Jesus. She knew him before anybody else had ever even heard of him. Way before he got famous, at McDonald Elementary School, where he gave weird reports in class, hung out at the loser lunch table and—wouldn't you know it—wound up suspended. Written and read by Heather O'Neill. Heather's the author of Lullabies for Little Criminals. (13 minutes)
