In this episode:

You approach a large door. Do you go in? Y or N

You open the door and find a huge troll? Do you (A)ttack, (R)un or use (M)agic?

If you've been in charge of social media of a company or church, you've likely encountered internet trolls before. What do you do? 

Out of nowhere, they bash your pastor, call your church a cult, and pray God sends plagues! 

Justin Dean has been through it all and stops by the podcast to talk about how we should handle trolls and other magical beasts as we manage our church's social media.
