Reclaiming My Theology is a podcast and community taking our theology back from ideas and systems that oppress. My name is Brandi Miller, some of you know me as @brandinico in online spaces. For over a decade, I have been exploring, unlearing, and reimagining my faith outside of systemic oppression and want to bring you along with me! Each season of the podcast will be a deep dive into a form of systemic oppression and ask how the values of oppressive ideas shape our hearts, minds, politics, and lived experiences. There are so many things to reclaim our theology from: white supremacy, patriarchy and misogyny, capitalism, homophobia, ableism and more. As we launch our first season, we will be reclaiming our theology from white supremacy. Each episode, I will talk to a guest about how the attributes of oppressive ideologies have infiltrated how we see ourselves, each other, and God. We will learn from marginalized communities who practice a different way, and seek to create a more just faith experience together.

Conversations to challenge and keep one sane
Thank you Brandi for fostering conversations that can jump start our work in sifting the harmful ideologies in the theologies we were handed and perpetuated. You and your guests are the voices I choose to listen to in this insane season. Reclaiming My Theology is helping me feel not alone in my intense aversion to White American Christianity and Christian Nationalism. I only wish there were more people in my immediate circle who were willing to engage in hard conversations like you do.
This podcast has been one of the
single most transformational things in my life in 2020. Thank you to Brandi and every person who has been on this podcast. You have brought Good News to my heart, and I am forever grateful.
