Reclaiming My Theology is a podcast and community taking our theology back from ideas and systems that oppress. My name is Brandi Miller, some of you know me as @brandinico in online spaces. For over a decade, I have been exploring, unlearing, and reimagining my faith outside of systemic oppression and want to bring you along with me! Each season of the podcast will be a deep dive into a form of systemic oppression and ask how the values of oppressive ideas shape our hearts, minds, politics, and lived experiences. There are so many things to reclaim our theology from: white supremacy, patriarchy and misogyny, capitalism, homophobia, ableism and more. As we launch our first season, we will be reclaiming our theology from white supremacy. Each episode, I will talk to a guest about how the attributes of oppressive ideologies have infiltrated how we see ourselves, each other, and God. We will learn from marginalized communities who practice a different way, and seek to create a more just faith experience together.

My favourite podcast!
I absolutely love this podcast! Brandi is an incredible podcast host/ interviewer. She always has the best guests and asks the best questions. I have learned so much from this podcast and it has also helped me feel less alone in the deconstruction/ reconstruction process.
you’re going to want to start from ep. 1, mmk?
Incredibly timely and helpful resource, constantly referring back to it when trying to understand why the Christian be like that. As a Christian myself it gave so much language and crystallized so many problems where the best I could do was point and say “not that.”
Essential listening for any white Christian looking to do more than be “progressive” and is a balm to any BIPOC soul reckoning with their faith.
My life has changed since listening to this podcast. Thank you so much for digging in to all the topics in so much detail.
