Brilliant

This is my favorite podcast! It combines so many of my favorite things, and I always learn something new. What more do you need? 👌🏼

Came for the nerdiness, stayed despite the iffy theology

Are you looking for something more “fun” than The Bulletin but also more Woke than The Holy Post? This might scratch a very strange itch if you are a Christian that also plays D&D, reads fantasy outside of Tolkien and Lewis, and won’t flinch at generous references to issues you may have a different opinion. I find myself disagreeing with some of Carrie and Adam’s stances on several issues but do deeply enjoy the discussions on faith and fandoms.

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!
