S2E12 | Joel on Sex and Porn (w/ Bekah)

Many of you have asked us to talk about it...and we have listened. Bekah is going to be talking with Joel Jones about sex and pornography. Joel is a same sex attracted man in a mixed orientation marriage and him and Bekah will be discussing how to deal with our sex drives when living according to our convictions as man and women, married and celibate. Nothing is off the table in this conversation and we are sure this is only the beginning of many conversations to come on the topic. Music: Theme Song: Driven to Success by Scott Holmes

S2E10 | Grant, Mary, Michelle, and Josh on Things Straight People Say

Michelle is back! She is joining Josh, Grant, and Mary as they discuss different things many LGBT+ Christians especially those with a Side B view hear a lot from straight people. We asked a bunch of Side B LGBT+ Christians in multiple platforms to give us their weirdest and most interesting questions and critiques they have received. So much of what we received was gold. We are discussing what we received along with our own thoughts. Plus, Michelle brought some of her own questions she wanted to ask as a straight person. This is both a funny and enlightening episode that you won't want to miss. Here is the link to the Canadian study on gay male speech which Josh referenced in the episode:https://web.archive.org/web/20071101043238/http://www.newsandevents.utoronto.ca/bin2/020218c.asp

So in this week's episode, Josh is talking with the cohosts as well as a number of previous guests and what it means to be Side B during a pandemic?
