Fantastic concept, engaging host
Conversations around hot button topics have become increasingly difficult to engage in with those on a different side. This podcast provides an opportunity for us all to consider another perspective in a non-threatening and grace-filled way. Luke offers intentional and thoughtful questions, allowing the guest’s story to be respected. He never gets in the way of that story, giving space for them to tell it as they wish. By framing these challenging topics around personal stories, he is gently showing us all to be more open.
Intriguing interviews that challenge you to examine your own beliefs
Luke T. Harrington has created the most interesting podcast I have stumbled onto in a long time. He seeks out people who have done a complete 180 in a core belief. His non-judgmental but unapologetically probing interview style digs into the root causes for why each guest believed XYZ and what caused them to shift to believing LMNOP. This podcast is a refreshing break from the trend toward a polarizing agree-or-disagree attitude so prevalent in our world today. Open your mind, launch this podcast, and you’ll find yourself thinking more deeply about your own beliefs and what has caused you to change your mind...or not.
A valuable listening experience
You're bound to hear something you disagree with on this podcast. That's okay. In fact, you might just be glad you did. The podcast explores differing points of view and the process of changing one's mind in ways that are especially healthy, constructive, and valuable in this hyper-tribal, hyper-polarized culture. Luke is both gracious and incisive with his guests, and I particularly enjoy his end-of-podcast musings. Definitely give this one a try.
