    Ben Lee: The First 19 Albums Are the Hardest

    Ben Lee: The First 19 Albums Are the Hardest

    In his 30-year music career, Australian music legend Ben Lee has been gloriously prolific and unpredictable. There have been chart hits (Cigarettes Will Kill You, Gamble Everything For Love, We're All in This Together and Catch My Disease – "That one's put food on the table more than a few times,” he says). An instrumental album inspired by the use of psychoactive drugs (Ayahuasca: Welcome to the Work). An album for kids (Ben Lee Sings Songs About Islam For The Whole Family).
    Ben Lee’s forthcoming album “I’m Fun!” truly is. In this episode, he reflects on the Torah portion set for his bar mitzvah, his 30 years in the spotlight and the charts, and the danger of conspiracies for those interested in spirituality.

    Tripp Fuller's Process Party, Part 2

    Tripp Fuller's Process Party, Part 2

    Don't miss Part 1 of our conversation with Tripp Fuller.
    "Tripp is a podcaster, theologian, minister, and competitive home brewer. Currently, he is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Theology & Science at the University of Edinburgh. He received his Ph.D. in Philosophy, Religion, and Theology at Claremont Graduate University. For over 12 years Tripp has been doing the Homebrewed Christianity podcast (think on-demand internet radio) where he interviews different scholars about their work so you can get nerdy in traffic, on the treadmill, or doing the dishes. Last year it had over 3 million downloads. It also inspired a book series with Fortress Press called the Homebrewed Christianity Guides to… topics like God, Jesus, Spirit, Church History, etc. Tripp is a very committed and (some of his friends think overly ) engaged Lakers fan, takes Star Wars and Lord of the Rings very seriously, enjoys coaching his oldest son Elgin’s flag football and basketball team, and prides himself in giving rousing editions of Sandra Boynton tunes during bedtime reading. Tripp, partner since 18 Alecia, & three kids (11, 5, & 2) are all headed to Scotland for three years where they hope to develop a sweet accent and avoid eating haggis.  In the classroom, online, or in the pulpit, his passion is helping the church develop a zesty theology with traction in our world today."

Always challenged and encouraged

I don’t exactly remember how I first connected to this podcast, but I am glad I did. I have found the non-violent atonement theory podcast episodes to be encouraging, challenging and helpful in my understanding of atonement. Grateful for the voices that are helping me hear a reading of scripture that is taking me forward.

must listen, hope that you follow

Inverse podcasts are incredible conversations that are more than entertaining. Listening can challenge and unsettle unconsciously upheld beliefs and make room for a sincere pursuit of following Jesus of Nazareth as we leave behind unhelpful views and assumptions of God. The community of conversation partners and listeners is a wonderful and life-giving place to belong - join us!!

A Thousand Times Yes!

This podcast, and community, is like finding a save haven in a storm. The discussions are always challenging, enlightening, and healing. Through the conversations led by Jarrod, Dr. Drew and their guests, I’ve been able to entangle myself from so many harmful teachings. So grateful!
