    Episode 51 - "April Ajoy"

    On this episode, we hear the story of April, a former staunch conservative Christian who started questioning her beliefs once tragedy occurred. It got more intense once politics and patriotism came to a head back in 2016, and everything she believed needed some recalibration. After going viral and attracting the attention of the likes of Ben Shapiro, Prager U and Greg Locke, April's mission is to show everyone what Evangelical Christianity looks like from the eyes of those who may never step foot in a Church building.

Good story

Sounds like the democrat party

gracejuliana ,

So glad I found this podcast

I differ from most where I wasn鈥檛 someone who deconstructed, but I just got out of a 7 year relationship with a evangelical Christian. 7 years of trying to convert me. 7 years of fighting over morals. It really wore me down. I never tried to change him but Ive always looked for resources that were Christian but left leaning, or deconstructed, to help me traverse the landmines I鈥檓 conversations I would have with him bc 鈥淚 was so uneducated about the Bible鈥. Well now that I鈥檓 out of it鈥his podcast has been sooooo cathartic. Makes me feel like I wasn鈥檛 crazy, wasn鈥檛 wrong, and actually鈥 lot of what is said are things that I have said to my ex before. So guess not that dumb either. Thanks for doing all that you do to make me feel sane again

Could use better sound quality and please stop saying 鈥渁nd stuff like that鈥.鈥 But I love the content !
