    What do we do when things break? w/ Makoto Fujimura

    What do we do when things break? w/ Makoto Fujimura

    This season is all about character and virtue — and how we can close our “character gaps” to become better people. But, what does it look like to grow more virtuous in a world with pain, trauma, and grief? Our guest for this episode, contemporary artist Makoto Fujimura, approaches this question through the lens of a centuries-old art form: kintsugi.


    Mako’s most recent book, Art + Faith, is available here.

    Can we change our brains for good? w/ Nii Addy

    Can we change our brains for good? w/ Nii Addy

    The pandemic upended all of our lives. As a response, we started different habits — and perhaps even formed addictions — that helped us to cope. But, after two years of pandemic living, is it possible to change? In this episode, we talk with Dr. Nii Addy, a researcher at Yale specializing in addiction, depression, and anxiety. And he says we can have hope — according to his research, it is possible to rewire our brains for greater mental health.


    If you’re curious to hear more from Nii, check out his podcast, Addy Hour, wherever you listen to podcasts! One of his recent episodes on faith, spirituality, and psychiatry is available here.

    What's up with kids these days? w/ Nancy Hill

    What's up with kids these days? w/ Nancy Hill

    People today reach the standard markers of adulthood — finishing education, getting married, becoming financially independent — later compared to people 50 years ago. Does that mean that kids these days are “behind” in their development? Or should these standard markers be rethought? Our guest today, Dr. Nancy Hill, is a Harvard professor and developmental psychologist. She invites us to consider how attending college might change how we develop — not just in our twenties, but for the rest of our lives.


    You can order Nancy and her co-author Alexis’s book, The End of Adolescence, here.

    Is "what's my passion" the right question? w/ Dave Evans

    Is "what's my passion" the right question? w/ Dave Evans

    Career searches often begin with the same question: “What’s my passion?” If you’re in a period of job transition — maybe you’re about to graduate, retire, or have felt like a new job is on the horizon — we want to help. And, we don’t think that “passion” is the best place to start. Join us as we talk with Dave Evans, New York Times best-selling author of Designing Your Life and Stanford professor, about what questions we should be asking when it comes to making our next steps vocationally.


    You can order Dave’s book, Designing Your Life, here.
