Thinking Out Loud is a place to digest audibly the things we tend to think through silently. We'll look at a variety of complex issues from a variety of points of view, not necessarily to get to "right answers" but to build empathy and perspective. 

Today I am joined by Dr. Felicia Su Wong, a cultural sociologist of media and digital technologies, currently serving as professor of sociology at Westmont College in Santa Barbara. We discuss her book, OUT NOW!, Restless Devices: Recovering Personhood, Presence, and Place in the Digital Age. Our technologies are forming us whether we know it or not, so Felicia and I discuss the importance of intentionality when it comes to our devices. We also discuss ways we can incorporate "counterliturgies" so that we are formed into the person of Christ. I'm sure you'll enjoy this conversation so listen away and then go and get a copy of her book.
