    Samantha Lindo & David Blower - The Friendship of Music (N248)

    Samantha Lindo & David Blower - The Friendship of Music (N248)

    In this podcast, David Benjamin Blower converses with musician, podcaster and activist Samantha Lindo on the subject of music: music as a wisened friend, music as a gatherer of people and radical energies, and music as a kind of prayer that can halt the Powers that Be, even just for a moment.

    Damon Garcia - The God Who Liberates (N247)

    Damon Garcia - The God Who Liberates (N247)

    In this episode we speak with Damon Garcia. Damon talks to us about how he found meaning in the God of liberation theology after questioning his beliefs and leaving the faith he inherited. We explore the importance of embodiment and community in faithful practice and how our context shapes our ideas about God. We talk about reading the Bible from the perspective of the marginalised through the example of the Magnificat and the call to listen to those on the underside of power.

    Ched Myers - Roll Like a River (N246)

    Ched Myers - Roll Like a River (N246)

    Ched Myers is a theologian, and author of the explosive Binding the Strong Man: A Political Reading of Mark's Story of Jesus.
    We asked Ched to reflect on the theology and ecology of rivers for this extended devotional podcast. He takes us on a journey down the Ventura river, where he lives in California, and goes on to open up the radical political imagination of the many biblical visions of rivers, in a world where colonisation and empire habitually steal water and turn fertile places into deserts. 
    Ched has recently co-authored, with Elaine Enns: Healing Haunted Histories: A Settler Discipleship of Decolonization.

    Gail Bradbrook - The Spirituality of Protest (N245)

    Gail Bradbrook - The Spirituality of Protest (N245)

    Before the October Rebellion of 2019, we interviewed Dr Gail Bradbrook, co-founder of Extinction Rebellion, for the Everybody Now podcast. However, the whole conversation was so utterly fascinating that we wanted to upload it in its entirety, especially at a time when the freedom to protest is under threat.
    We talked to Gail about climate emergency and civil disobedience, and also about prayer and spirituality, science and wonder, sacredness, love and the radical power of women.

    Richard Rohr - The Cosmic Christ (N244)

    Richard Rohr - The Cosmic Christ (N244)

    In this episode we talk about Jesus with Franciscan friar, founder of the Center for Action and Contemplation and author of The Universal Christ, Richard Rohr.
    Fr. Richard believes Jesus is the personification of God’s constant, unfolding work in the world. Consequently, he sees faith as being less about proving Jesus was God, and more about learning to recognise the Creator’s presence all around us and in everyone we meet.
    So we ask Fr. Richard how his faith has been reshaped by this discovery, what the implications of the loss of this worldview have been for the Church and the world, where the atonement fits in, whether there’s still any need for religion, and many more questions.
    As you’d expect from Fr. Richard, his answers are thought-provoking and full of hope.

    Christiana Peterson - Awakened by Death (N243)

    Christiana Peterson - Awakened by Death (N243)

    We live in a death and grief averse culture. Aided by modern medicine and the funeral industry, we’ve created an ever-increasing distance between us and our mortality. So we ask author of Awakened by Death Christiana Peterson what psychological and spiritual impact this is having on us, and how reclaiming a healthy relationship with our own mortality might help us live fuller and richer lives.
    In this episode we talked about a new series of public domain podcasts we're producing. If you'd like to support these, visit our fundraising page.

Really Amazing

I just discovered Nomad podcast a week or so ago and have been binge listening to multiple episodes every day (all out of order, whatever looks interesting). It has been so inspiring and helpful to me as I'm figuring out my own faith. Thanks so much for all the time and effort and vulnerability you put into making this!

Journey

Nomad podcast has been a beloved companion with me on the faith journey I have been on. Listening for many years now has enriched, guided, encouraged and even entertained me through the topics and discussions that reassure me I haven’t gone totally mad. Thanks Tim and all who make this podcast possible.

Prayer

This podcast has been a welcome lifeline for me. I love the variety of guests, both in beliefs and geographic homes. The Karris interview in prayer was a perfect example of how you all encourage me and help me to grow. Love all the hosts too. Thank you, brothers and sisters.
