Listen to My Interview On the EasterPod

Image may contain: 1 person, beard, text and closeup

This past Sunday, I am on a new episode of the EasterPod, a podcast by Corey Easterday.

This one is extra special for me because Corey is not only a friend and a great person, leader, and creative entrepreneur, he was also in my youth group when I was first a youth pastor back at Barberton Evangelical Friends Church from 2001-2003. Corey was in 7th grade then, now he is doing all kinds of really great things, not least of which is being the National Director for the Laundry Project.

In this episode, Corey and I cover a lot of ground: I share about my personal story, how how I came to pastoral work at Barberton Friends and beyond, how I became a Quaker and why I still am one today, we discuss my passion around anti-poverty work, the book of Revelation, my work at Guilford College, and Fireweed Coffee. As you can see, it is a wide-ranging conversation.

I hope you will tune in, share the episode with folks you think would find it helpful, subscribe to hear more of what Corey is doing, and share your feedback!

Here’s the episode:

The No. 666 & Resisting Empire: Inverse Podcast Interview

Inverse Podcast with Hosts Jarrod McKenna and Dr. Drew Hart

Last week, my interview with the Inverse Podcast was published. The conversation with Drew Hart (Professor at Messiah College, Author of The Trouble I’ve Seen, Changing the Way the Church Views Racism) and Jarrod McKenna (Australian theologian and activist) was a lot of fun and broad in terrain. The main focus of the podcast was my book, Resisting Empire, where we spent time discussing Quakerism, some of the broad themes in book of Revelation, the Poor People’s Campaign, and the Mark of the Beast, the meaning of the numbers 666 and more. It’s well worth the listen, and great intro into a very different way of reading and understanding the Book of Revelation.

I recommend not only listening to my interview but checking out all the great guests they have on Inverse. They’re doing really great work.

You can listen to Inverse through Apple Podcasts, Overcast, and anywhere you get your Podcasts.
