Episode 107—The Hinge Moment—ft. Reverend Shannon Fleck
09. February 2021
Reverend Fleck is the Executive Director of the Oklahoma Conference of Churches, a coalition of faith communities, Christian denominations, interfaith organizations, and secular nonprofits that work to connect society to faith-based communities. This mission and this conversation are personal for Shannon. She holds, as do I, that people are informed by what they see, and when they do not see themselves properly represented they are actually being held back from the fullness of humanity.

Episode 106—The Escape Pod—ft. James Hiatt, interim Worship Leader at University Methodist Church in Lake Charles, Louisiana
04. February 2021
James showed me a face of Christ that I am so fondly attracted to, and that is the face of Christ that I see planted firmly in the world, out in the wild, with us, not separate from us. He reminds me of the high value of being with the people of the world—in the world—as they are, instead of preparing some grand escape from the worries and woes.

Episode 105—The Dark Heart—ft. Lisa Diana McCall, author of The Rhythm of the Soul: A Journey of Loss and Discovery
27. January 2021
Have you ever made a decision, with no hesitation, that you knew would change your life? A choice that was so clear, so pure, that you could almost perceive the path it would lead you down?

Episode 104—The Healthy Triggers—ft. Laura Zam, author of The Pleasure Plan: One Woman's Search for Sexual Healing
19. January 2021
Laura cuts right through the noise by saying what needs to be said, even if the subjects seem taboo, and her comfort in sharing discomfort put me at ease. In this episode, I opened up and talked about things I've never spoken of before. I believe that is because Laura created a space of listening, love, and genuine care. She understands that for people to speak freely about traumatic experiences—particularly sexual trauma—they need to know they are safe and witnessed with eyes of non-judgment.

Episode 102—The Tumbleweed Tree—featuring John Wackman & Elizabeth Knight, co-authors of Repair Revolution: How Fixers Are Transforming Our Throwaway Culture
16. December 2020
As John and Elizabeth explain, people line up at these repair cafés with their band-aided and broken items. Whether it's a shirt that needs mending, a blender that won't blend, a record player that won't play, or a lamp that won't light, it seems there is no end to the knowledge and willingness of fixers to teach people how to bring their cracked and crooked items back to life. Not only do people get their items repaired, but they learn firsthand how to make these fixes themselves.

Episode 101—The Firefly Entanglement—featuring Kim Chestney, author of Radical Intuition: A Revolutionary Guide to Using Your Inner Power
09. December 2020
I sincerely love the matter-of-fact way Kim approaches the topic of personal intuition, bringing it outside the sphere of "woo", and down to a practical, approachable level. She teaches us how to put intuition to work in our ordinary lives, which ironically reveals the extraordinary connection that we have with the people, experiences, and world around us.
