Hooked and Thankful

I met the host Rachael via Instagram, and have since been so thankful for their voice. This gentle yet bold, and invitational voice continues in this podcast and I learn from every conversation. This is a space for learners and listeners to grab a seat at the table, feel welcomed, and learn from the important discussions about faith/humanity/love and freedom of self. Can’t wait for more.

Great Conversations

I love these conversations so much! I’m being introduced to people I don’t know who are doing amazing work. It’s so inspiring. And the host does a fantastic job of asking questions and stimulating good conversation. I recommend to everyone who wants to be a better human!

Makes me hopeful for the future!

This podcast is one of the amazing grassroots efforts towards LGBTQIA+ inclusion and discussing deeper faith concepts. The raw conversation, acceptance of faith exploration, and overarching theme of self love make for an incredibly engaging and thought provoking podcast.

I personally heard things that I needed to hear from the first episode with Kevin Garcia. It made me feel like questioning life and faith was ok and being human was more about having conversations than being perfect. Genuinely
I am so excited to hear season two!!

Thank you so much for creating this. We need more resources and conversations like the ones being had in this podcast
