048| Azariah Southworth: Petty Bitches with Power

EHe was always queer, even when he was hosting a highly-rated Christian TV show for the TBN network. Azariah Southworth met up with us in a library in Oceanside, CA, to talk about growing up Pentecostal, working in the Christian entertainment business, and the hard-won freedom he now embraces as a queer, Jesus-loving activist who is here to expose and dethrone the two-faced petty bitches who abuse their power in evangelical culture.

047| Dustin Ransom: Wholeness Is Jell-O

ENashville singer/songwriter Dustin Ransom is stepping it up. He's a talented multi-instrumentalist who has played with and written for dozens of musicians, from Derek Webb to Jars of Clay to Chely Wright, but with the release of his new album Frontiers, the spotlight is on him. Which is fine, because he has plenty to share, both through his music and in this rollicking, powerful conversation about his path toward wholeness.

045| Jake Wesley Rogers: The First Gay President

EDon’t confuse him with Jacob from the Bible. Jake Wesley Rogers is a Nashville-based musician, songwriter, and performer whose music has been making us weep/fist-pump/belt out loud lately, and we’re so excited he agreed to have a conversation about spirituality with us. He just released a new EP called Spiritual (and we highly recommend you check out “Jacob from the Bible” right now!), and he’s doing incredible work of queering religious iconography, translating his spiritual experience to soul-shaking songs, and reminding us that intuition is divine.

Minisode| Thanksgiving Thoughts from a Park Bench

EHi, heathens! Even though we're in-between seasons right now, we wanted to send you some quick love at Thanksgiving. We know that with Thanksgiving often comes family, and with family—when you're a heathen—often comes a lot of discomfort, awkwardness, and downright difficult situations. So this is just a "we love you" voicemail to remind you that you are so, so not alone. When Uncle Pat puts on his MAGA hat, pop in your earbuds and spend a few minutes with us on a park bench. Here's to the heathens.
