Keep It Up!

Loving how Hayden is building out a space where Christianity and pragmatism can overlap and inform one another.

He's has on some great guests as of late.

Push Yourself

Hayden’s transparency and willingness to engage, not dismiss, other people’s thoughts, beliefs, etc can be of service to those who listen. 💪🏻🙏❤️

Open and honest discussions about faith

I’ve really enjoyed the honest discussions about the problems of religion, while also discussing alternatives to conceptualizing faith and religion in our times. I like the balance between the general discussions about faith and culture, with the deeper philosophical ones. I’m excited to see how the show evolves
