    Episode 235: Wolves, Chimpanzees, and Deer: Let’s confront the Alpha Male Myth

    Evangelical conservatives too often portray masculinity as if men are supposed to be the “Alpha male”—aloof, emotionless, vying for control, and bullying. Today we look at how, even in nature, this concept of the Alpha Male has been overblown. And we present a better picture.To Support Us:Join our Patreon for as little as $5 a month to support our workFor tax deductible donations in the U.S., support Good Fruit Faith Initiative through the Bosko FoundationAnd check out our Merch, or any of ou...

Shining the light of truth and health

Sheila and Rebecca are such gifted teachers, truly called to this work of dismantling harmful rhetoric that dehumanizes women, and restoring health, joy and connection to people’s lives. And doing it with love, humor and solid evidence. They manage to take some of the most grotesque and pro-abuser comments and calmly put them under the microscope so we can all see these messages are nothing but viruses and hot air. Then they get out the disinfectant and help everyone else obtain it too so we can all get better.

Only 1 flaw…

Only reason it doesn’t get 5 stars is because no one can finish a thought without interrupting. It’s very frustrating. I love the topics and guests. It’s been so healing for me and others I know. However, with almost every guest R will cut in without letting them even get to the point they are making. I respect her and always love to hear what she has to say. Her voice is so important but pleaaaaaase let people finish speaking! Why have a guest if you don’t let them contribute to the conversation? Please work on it. I love this podcast and want to keep listening!

Feminist

Wow, the disrespect in her tone of voice and the way she attacks others’ beliefs is appalling to me. How can you claim to be Christian and attack others in such a snarky tone? Building up strawmen and defeating them characterizes the majority of this podcasts. The mockery is out of control. Not to mention it’s full of false teaching, with a little truth mixed in. Very dangerous.
