Welcome to That Makes Total Sense! A podcast about exploring God’s generosity and justice. I’m Alexis Busetti - a Christian aiming to ask good questions and encourage you to do the same.
Every one of us is wired by God to live out generosity and justice, but sometimes the how eludes us. That Makes Total Sense! is a way for us to get together, posture ourselves as learners, and challenge one other to practice generosity and justice in a tangible way everyday.

Thoughtful And Encouraging!
Alexis does a wonderful job of creating engaging and enjoyable shows! The episodes that I’ve heard thus far have caused me to think about the topics in fresh ways and have been a genuine encouragement to listen to. Highly recommended if you’re a person of faith who’s interested in thinking and living better!
Generosity and Justice
I found this podcast by way of Drew Hart and Brenda Salter McNeil, two social justice promoters whose work I have recently become aware of. Although it may not be addressed here, I’m hoping to discover new ways to being the Body of Christ (“doing justice”) outside of the walls of institutional church-going, if that’s even possible. Thank you, Alexis!
