    Born Again Again Story with Ben + Andrea

    Born Again Again Story with Ben + Andrea

    Being "Unequally Yoked" is a major concern when one partner in a couple goes through a faith change without the other, and our guests today have generously shared that journey with us all. 


    Ben and Andrea are a mixed-faith couple that went through this tricky process and have come out the other side stronger. In this interview we talk about those first difficult conversations, about therapy and how that was instrumental for them, and about all the things they learned about themselves and about each other as they went through this life change. In addition, we explore some of the very practical ways in which they have been able to make their mixed faith relationship work for them.


    As always, I hope you enjoy!

    Born Again Again Story with David

    Born Again Again Story with David

    “On a base level of what feels right and wrong, rejecting a person for wanting to experience love just didn’t feel right at all.”


    Today’s episode is an interview with David, who grew up in the southern Church or Christ and left the faith later in life.


    We talk about what is was like growing up in a southern fundamentalist church, about having doubts as a kid, but not knowing how to express them, about a conversation with a coworker that completely changed his life, and about how common sense has to be a higher moral standard than any religious book. We wrap things up by discussing the difficulties in dealing with bitterness on the other side.


    I hope you enjoy!

    Born Again Again Story with Andi + Jeremy

    Born Again Again Story with Andi + Jeremy

    “Belief is not a choice, and if it’s not a choice then the burden is off of my shoulders”


    Today’s episode is an interview with Andi + Jeremy, a couple who, similar to Katie and me, started their relationship as committed christians but then headed down the path of deconversion.


    We talk about their origins and the first dominos that started to fall, about the difficulties that came with losing their faiths at different rates, about telling their family and friends, and about all of the healing that they’ve found on the other side. 


    I hope you enjoy!

    Facing and Embracing Death with Caroline Ingraham Lee

    Facing and Embracing Death with Caroline Ingraham Lee

    Letting go of the promise of heaven is a really hard part of leaving the faith and leaves many of us with a fear of death.


    In this episode, we discuss this typically heavy topic with death doula Caroline Ingraham Lee. We talk about her story and how she became a death doula, and discuss what that means on a practical level.

    We end by talking about how facing her own mortality head-on has helped her to live a richer, more engaged and more fulfilling life, and she shares her thoughts about overcoming a lingering fear of hell and the unknown. I really, really enjoyed this conversation and hope you do too...

Rachc29 ,

Thank you.

This is saving me during my deconstruction process. Thank you guys so so much.

Really miss Katie! (no offense to Joe!) :)

There seem to be so many men and so few women on deconstruction podcasts across the board, I just wanted to say how great it was to have a female perspective and how much that is missed. (Not sure what happened but seems to be just Joe now on the podcast.) Anyway, I appreciate your work and just wanted to share my thoughts.

Fantastic podcast

I grew up surrounded by evangelicals and found my way into a souther baptist church. I was in it for years and got the strength to leave. I relate so much to Joe and Katie and I don’t feel so alone. What I really like is that they are not all rah rah I’m atheist. Just honest communication about what it’s like to leave the church, which is quite traumatizing.

Thank for this podcast and your vulnerability. You are doing an excellent service for those of us who have left the church.
