    Persuasion 185 | Family Values

    Persuasion 185 | Family Values

    In this episode of Persuasion, Erin Straza and Hannah Anderson dissect the notion that families are under attack. Many a Christian leader has presented evidence of this war, pointing to everything from Hollywood films to dual income families to divorce rates. They discuss the possibility that these issues are not causing the breakdown of the family but are instead a response to something that has already happened.

    Seeing and Believing 236 | Cathy Yan's Birds of Prey and Jeff Baena's Horse Girl

    Seeing and Believing 236 | Cathy Yan's Birds of Prey and Jeff Baena's Horse Girl

    The guys are back on the comic-book beat this week! Harley Quinn isn't exactly a superhero or a super-villain in Cathy Yan's Birds of Prey, but the Margot Robbie-starring film still looks to have some anarchic fun. On the more serious side of things is Horse Girl, the Sundance-featured film (written by and starring Alison Brie) about a disturbed young woman trying to find solid footing in a life filled with difficulties.

    The 25 for January 2020 | Caucuses, Kobe, and Conversations

    The 25 for January 2020 | Caucuses, Kobe, and Conversations

    The 25 is back for 2020 with a different format (and possibly a different title?). Host Jonathan Clauson returns with guests Kaitlyn Schiess and Tyler Burns. Starting the show with a brief recap of the biggest events in January 2020, we go deep on the death of Kobe Bryant and how that impacts the conversation around #metoo, the black community, and the "white gaze" around the death of Kobe and other prominent figures in the black community. We also talk about the Iowa Caucus (not the fiasco) and how the turn around and the emerging ways in which the younger generations approach voting, canvassing, and using the social media outlets to be involved in the democratic process.

    Persuasion 184 | Home Bodies, with Wesley Hill

    Persuasion 184 | Home Bodies, with Wesley Hill

    You can’t think about home without thinking about the people in it. Our most formative and important relationships are rooted here, an inextricable part of what we conceive of when we think about home. In our modern society, home is most often associated with the nuclear family: parents and children. This modern conception isn’t the only framework available to us, however, nor does it provide home for all people.

    Seeing and Believing 235 | Gretel and Hansel and The Two Popes

    It's an episode of dynamic duos this week! Director Os Perkins follows up his horror flick The Blackcoat's Daughter with Gretel and Hansel, a dark reimagining of the Grimm brothers' (already pretty dark) fairy tale about two intrepid youngsters and an evil witch. The guys also take some time to hang out with two of St. Peter's successors with their review of The Two Popes, the acting showcase that nabbed its stars, Jonathan Pryce and Anthony Hopkins, two Oscar nominations.

    Persuasion 183 | Home Making

    Persuasion 183 | Home Making

    Our understanding of home affects everything about us, both individually and collectively. Home is vital to us all, but determining its value in a market-based society is fraught with troubles. Salary.com has attempted to help by giving stay-at-home-moms (or dads) a $160K valuation. The intent is to elevate the status of the home maker by giving it a professional-level salary. Our need for the marketplace to validate our home life tells us more than we may care to admit.
    In this episode of Persuasion, Erin Straza and Hannah Anderson dig into their new series titled Go Home! Finding Our Way. Each episode will explore the common assumptions regarding the home and both in the church and in society. This conversation centers on home making—looking at the value we place on domestic life and the building of the home as the calling and vocation of us all. The church has tried to value the home by assigning it as women’s work. By claiming the home as the woman’s place and home making as a woman’s highest calling, the church initiates an unnecessary and unhelpful hierarchy that negates the varied experiences of women. In so doing, the church has sidestepped the role men play in home making and has assessed value according to marketplace standards. Is it possible to establish a vision for the home that is separate from cultural influences, both in the church and in the marketplace? How can we better approach the needful and important work of home making so that both women and men are fulfilling their proper role there?
