    Episode 004: Jeannie Gaffigan

    Today, I’m so excited to welcome Jeannie Gaffigan. Jeannie is is a writer, producer, and active catholic. She and her husband, comedian Jim Gaffigan have five kids, and live in New York City.

    Our chat today covers lots of experiences over the past few months, including what happened the night in August when Jim went viral in a now infamous tweet storm during the Republican National Convention. I love Jeannie’s candor, humor, and humanity she shares here, and I know you’ll appreciate her takes on faith, learning as a mom of five, and leading in complicated days…

    Episode 003: Jenn Abel

    Episode 003: Jenn Abel

    Today, my guest is Jenn Abel. Jenn is a writer, teacher, and mother of six. She has been through a significant personal, spiritual, and emotional evolution. In the ramp up to the 2020 election, Jenn went viral after sharing a post about abortion that came from her mother's heart. Over the years her views on what it means to be "pro-life" have shifted, which has affected how she approaches who she votes for and why. With crucial presidential, federal, state, and local elections in the United States just around the corner, this is such an important conversation…at the perfect time.

I love Mathew Chambers’ approach on the topics and guests he has on this show. I am not a very religious person nor do I attend church but I thoroughly enjoy the conversations that are being had on this podcast. It is entertaining, engaging, honest and thoughtful. I look forward to the weekly releases and I highly suggest you take a listen for yourself.
