    All About Eve

    All About Eve

    In this episode, host Junia Joplin and reporter Anne Thériault end at the beginning with a closer look at the mother of all living things: Eve. Listeners will learn how most Sunday school lessons get it all wrong. Eve isn't second to Adam and the snake might not be who we think it is. Tune in to the final episode of And Also Some Women to find out.

    Old Testament Women: Miriam, Deborah, Esther

    Old Testament Women: Miriam, Deborah, Esther

    In this episode, host Junia Joplin and reporter Anne Thériault examine three powerful Old Testament women who have largely been overlooked by Christianity: Miriam, Deborah and Esther. It’s especially odd they don't get more attention when you consider their stories read like movie plots. Escape! Murder! Sabotage!

    Mary, Mother of Jesus

    Mary, Mother of Jesus

    In this episode, host Junia Joplin and reporter Anne Thériault tackle one of the Bible’s biggest celebrities: the most venerated saint, wife, and mother in the New Testament, Mary, mother of Jesus. This episode provides some fascinating insights about Mary, including how her politics may have shaped Jesus’ ministry and how church fathers have used her virginal image to enforce patriarchal ideas.

    Bad Girls of the Bible: Jezebel, Delilah & Salome

    Bad Girls of the Bible: Jezebel, Delilah & Salome

    In this episode, host Junia Joplin and reporter Anne Thériault investigate three Biblical figures whose reputations precede them in the worst possible way: Jezebel, Delilah and Salome. While this podcast might not entirely redeem their reputations, listeners will likely see these "villainesses" in a completely different light.

    Mary Magdalene

    Mary Magdalene

    In our debut episode, hosts Junia Joplin and Anne Thériault delve into Mary Magdalene, a figure who has been depicted in many different ways: as a sex worker, as the apostle to the apostles, even as Jesus’ wife. In this episode they'll try to figure out what, if any, of those characterizations are accurate.

Fantastic series

A fascinating journey! Everything about this series was well done, from the hosting to the research and interviews. I’m very much hoping for more of this podcast, and would definitely be interested in other podcasts from Broadview as well.

Amazing!

So fascinating

A fascinating perspective

I’ve always been fascinated by the processes that have led to our modern interpretation of the bible. And it is not surprising to me that cultural biases have lead to a male-centric interpretation. It is refreshing to hear a voice centred on women and the roll they play in Christianity at the time they lived in. Definitely worth listening to if you have a curious mind.
