Where theology and culture intersect

This podcast is engaging and marvelous in its balance using nerd cannon as a source for theological imagination. A must for anyone looking to deepen their faith and understanding of themes and consequences in beloved media.This is where theology and culture intersect. It’s thoughtful, down to earth, and a sheer delight. Listen now!
