Ashy to Classy: Escaping Misogyny

October 6th, 2018

This week we’re exploring the hold misogyny appears to have on us. How did we get here? How does it affect us? How do we get away? We’re offering some insight on how to go from ashy to classy. We don’t want anyone to be ashy. You don’t have to be but it takes work to move toward classy. Let’s get to work!

In the Middle of It - Midterm Election Roundup

September 29th, 2018
This week Amera is back and we are using our platform to discuss the importance of building up a practice of political participation, especially in the non-presidential, or midterm, election cycles.  While different groups are advocating for "getting out the vote" for this specific cycle, we are advocating for a change in attitude toward political participation that will increase issue and candidate awareness and voting across various types of local, state, and national races.
 
We cover a lot of ground here. It isn’t your usual poli-tainment. One of us even makes something like a right leaning argument. 
 
This midterm is especially important. Sit with us as we explore some of the reasons why.

Sex in the Bible: Non-Monogamy & Polyamory

September 22nd, 2018

This week we were joined by Ev'Yan Whitney of the Sexually Liberated Woman podcast as we explored non-monogamy & polyamory in the Bible. We trace the history of and reasons for non-monogamy, the rise of monogamy and the resurgence of an expression that was and maybe still is common. 

Ev'Yan shares her experiences transitioning from a monogamous to a non-monogamous marriage, its challenges and successes. You want to hear this story!

We covered a lot of ground in one episode but the conversation is just beginning.

Social Justice is the Gospel

September 15th, 2018
We are back! 
 
To kick off season 3, we are addressing The Statement on Social Justice & the Gospel signed by John MacArthur and thousands of other faith leaders. We discuss some of the affirmations and denials contained in the statement, how and why a statement like this is made in the year of our Lord 2018, and why all of these signatories miss the point. Later in the episode, we talk about that time Jesus was racist and what we can learn from it. 
 
It’s good to be back!
