Joshua Stump and Jay Newman talk about spirituality and overcoming cynicism in a post-evangelical culture.
Learning from Black Churches w/ Stephen Ray
We delve into the broo-ha concerning CRT with youth pastor Stephen (don't cal me Steven) Ray. We tap into what the black experience can offer if we can get past the bugaboos to hear it.
Stay tuned to the end, and follow Stephen on Facebook for more good conversation starters.
Do We Even Need to Be Saved?
Little late on this one, would have worked better on Good Friday! Jay gets ticked off by a tweet and Josh helps talk him through it and as usual its all a part of overcoming their cynicism.
How To Cancel A Cult w/ Travis McCool
We're joined by longtime Catacomb listener Travis who explains to us his detox from right wing fundamentalism and the difficulties of staying in Christian community through the shutdowns.
Spinning On A Rock w/ Mikee Bridges
Josh and Jay sit down with pioneer of the Christian Rock boom, Mikee Bridges. Mikee went from rock and roll evangelist to having no faith at all and we discuss his journey. Mikee is putting together an docu-series on the cultural curiosity of Christian rock and you can check out more at his website.
Christians Created Cancel Culture
Josh is irritated at a letter his nephew's friend was sent from her church disfellowshipping her. We discuss church discipline and whether its necessary or not, and end up on the scandals of ministers like Ravi Zacharias and Jean Vanier... where there was an obvious lack of discipline and accountability.
We say a few nice words about Carman too.
After Doubt w/ AJ Swoboda
We're joined by author/scholar AJ Swoboda to discuss his forthcoming book "After Doubt - How to Question Your Faith Without Losing It". Very encouraging discussion.

I really enjoy all of the Catacomb podcasts. But the immigration episode may be my favorite so far. In a time when the country is so divided it is refreshing to hear common sense dialogue on this subject.
Musicians, mystics, and mischievous misfits...
The Catacombs is a unique and important member of the body podcast. In an age of deconstruction, Josh, Jay, their guest (and don’t forget Thad) aren’t just reveling in cynicism; they are revealing it with an eye towards subverting/solving it. This isn’t a pity party; it’s a pilgrimage...one well worth walking.
These guys talk and act like normal human beings. I have listened to and digested almost every episode. In the process, I have been encouraged in that I don’t feel alone in my struggles anymore. My frustrations and fears are validated here and in that validation, I find a home.
