Dear Brethren our world, much including Freemasonry, is working through a darkened hour. We have seen the prompt and drastic impact that the current COVID-19 virus has played on Masonic meetings and gatherings across the country and globe but this is not the first time the Craft has had to make quick decisions in the best interest of the Brethren. Join us in this episode as the Historical Light historians guide us through how Freemasonry is currently being affected by this historic epidemic which we are living through and mix in some enlightening comparison with some equally troubling situations from our past Brethren as well.

Chivalry! Honor! Friendship! In this postmodern era, the once-sacred idea of what constitutes a friend has been watered down for most by the simple click of an ADD or REMOVE button.

Join us with special guests Dylan John Callahan and Casey Pemberton as we explore the ancient Greek tale of Pythagorean mystics Damon and Pythias. The important lessons from that tale have been the central aim of the Knights of Pythias since its formal creation during the American Civil War. Bro. Powers considers becoming a Knight, Bro. Marshall recites some poetry, and even Jerry Lewis and Dean Martin garner mention as we discover a film originally created to be a celebration of their famous bond.

Have you heard the jokes around Freemasonry about “the goat”? Have you heard of the Odd Fellows (IOOF)? Well, in this episode of Historical Light our resident historians tackle both topics head-on with a special guest, Ainslie Heilich. To top things off, Ainslie is our first guest on the show that is not a Freemason, but rather an Odd Fellow. We get to go on a special private tour of an Odd Fellows lodge and tackle the issue of the goat head-on in the process. You will not want to miss this episode!

He also talks about Michigan Masonry's unique role in (or out of) the Baltimore Convention, the George Washington artifacts used at the commemoration of the Detroit Masonic Temple, and more! We also take a look at a Rolling Stones album cover, and discuss various famous musicians who have played in the building as well as one who stepped up recently to support it financially!
