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.

Here for all of this

Brandi- thank you for all the thought and heart you put into these episodes. I’ve really felt alone in my spiritual struggles and each episode creates a safe place to ask questions, share doubts and imagine about how our beliefs about God can become more loving and freeing for ourselves and all humans. This podcast challenges me to grow and is kinda what I always wanted Sunday school to be like but I didn’t know it till now. I’m learning heaps here and trying to do just a little bit better everyday. Grateful for you and your guests! Erna and you are my favorites but each guest has offered up so much gold. I’m someone who has experienced spiritual trauma and Brandi shares in a way that isn’t triggering or she gives good heads-up. :)

Please, Never Stop

Thank you so much Brandi (and all of your guests), for continuing to share your story and help deconstruct the toxic religious atmosphere so many of us grew up in! You have truly put the inner arguments in my head into words and real world applications.
The world need more people like you! Keep being and bringing the light.

Must listen

This podcast is so timely as so many of us are deconst…I meant detangling white Christianity from Jesus. With so few guides, the task feels impossible but I think Brandi Miller has done an amazing job creating a hospitable environment to learn and discover and rediscover the liberation Jesus makes possible for all of us.
