Rejecting Purity and Claiming Bad Kin with Dr. Alexis Shotwell
Inside and outside the church we all have ideas about purity that drive our decisions and relationships. People are too radical, not radical enough. Their beliefs or goals don't align perfectly with ours. Our lives become more defined by what we don't do, where we can't shop, what we won't eat all in a quest for purity that we will never achieve.
So how do we live with impurity?
And how does that apply to our relatives, not only in the sense of family but more broadly. Who claims you? And what do you do about that.
Alexis Shotwell, author of Against Purity and Knowing Otherwise joins us for a necessary, and welcome, conversation.

A good look at indigenous futures
This podcast is so genuine in its presentation and how the hosts talk about issues relating to indigenous and black peoples. It gives the listener hope that there will be a brighter future when outlooks don’t seem to say the same. I would highly recommend this podcast for a a good look at the future for the resistance.
Practical & inspiring
I could listen to these folks all day; it’s so wonderful to hear their analysis of current events & how frankly they challenge supremacy culture.
Thank you for the quality content!!
