Less aggro, more conversation.
Is it even possible to have a deep discussion without it descending into chaos? Michael Jensen and Megan Powell du Toit think yes, and want to show the rest of us how to do it.
There’s plenty of things they disagree on: free will, feminism, where you should send your kids to school and what type of church you should go to. But there are also plenty of other things that they have in common. They want to talk about all these things with conviction. But they also want the conversation to be constructive. Tune in to find out if that’s possible.
The Christian world is full of its own super-stars - men and women who stride the world stage with seeming significance and sometimes staggering results. Megan and Michael ask, how is a believer to respond to these luminaries?
God and the ALP
It is often assumed that Christianity is aligned with politics on the right - by those outside and within the church. So Michael and Megan thought it's time you met the Christian Left.
In some circles preaching is the one thing you can't skip at church. For others, it is an outdated experience. Which is it for you?
Jesus and John Wayne
What role does the 'man's man' have in Evangelical America? And how likely is it that those trends are traversing the Pacific to our own country?
How To Question Your Faith
Christianity has a mixed history when it comes to questioning your faith. Michael and Megan ask, is there a good way to go about it?
Kinship And Refugees
In the wake of Refugee Week, the With All Due Respect team tackle our national responsibility towards the stateless with some international input.
Thought-provoking and entertaining
I really value listening to these conversations. I’m not a debater myself, but love to listen and chew on the issues that are discussed.
I also think the different backgrounds of the presenters help us to see the issues through slightly different lenses, and it’s all done in a gentle, enjoyable, and respectful way. Well done!
Listening to this drives me to despair.
Each episode is a reminder that there are people that think they have much to say but just agree with everything that the culture tells them to think.
A good antidote to rancorous and polarised debate
A thoroughly stimulating podcast that tackles important issues relevant to both the church and broader society. Megan and Michael are engaging hosts and show how controversial topics can be discussed in an informed and respectful manner. The format works best, however, when there is genuine disagreement (or at least differing perspectives) between the two; episodes where they are in total agreement over an issue are less compelling than those where they have something to respectfully disagree about. On these occasions the podcast shines, and presents a good antidote to the rancorous and polarised discourse all too common in contemporary public debate.
