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.

Life changing podcast

While I thoroughly enjoy a lot of deconstruction & exvangelical podcasts, this one has done the most for me. Every episode gives me language to fully understand my experiences and I could not be more grateful for that. The latest episode made me realize I need to go to therapy & there were even resources given on the instagram page for that. Thank you thank you thank you for this work that you do.

My New Favorite Podcast!

I have been recommending this podcast to many of my Christian friends because it’s been making my mind explode. It’s not just making me reclaim my theology, it’s expanding it as well. Just about every episode makes me think more deeply and reminds me that we have a great and infinite God.

Epically awesome k8 ,

Thank you for speaking truth boldly

Sharing episodes all the time! This is the spiritual nourishment I’ve been starving for.
