Embracing peace in a violent world can be a challenging and lonely experience. The Perisson Podcast features co-hosts Andrew Klager and Jarrod McKenna interviewing peacemakers from around the world who work in a variety of contexts to subvert empire by loving enemies, repaying evil with good, and embracing a nonviolent way of life — by "doing more (perisson) than others" (Mt. 5:20, 46–48).

The responses of those we interview are meant to distill their "best of the best," their "aha moments," those pivotal ideas that clinched their commitment to nonviolence and peacemaking. And beyond the surface behaviour of nonviolent activists and thinkers, the podcast delves into the often neglected but rapidly becoming important inner world of peacemakers — the spiritual, ascetic, contemplative interior struggles that animate their exterior behaviour.

So great!

Wonderful to see Andrew and Jarrod team up for this podcast - a fantastic first episode with Brian Zahnd, and some Bruce Cockburn lyrics to boot. We all need more teaching on Jesus' way of non-violence.

Great first episode! And I don't mean it's great *for* a first episode. It's great — can't wait to hear what's next.
