Embracing peace in a violent world can be a challenging and lonely experience. The Perisson Podcast features co-hosts Andrew Klager and Jarrod McKenna interviewing peacemakers from around the world who work in a variety of contexts to subvert empire by loving enemies, repaying evil with good, and embracing a nonviolent way of life — by "doing more (perisson) than others" (Mt. 5:20, 46–48).

The responses of those we interview are meant to distill their "best of the best," their "aha moments," those pivotal ideas that clinched their commitment to nonviolence and peacemaking. And beyond the surface behaviour of nonviolent activists and thinkers, the podcast delves into the often neglected but rapidly becoming important inner world of peacemakers — the spiritual, ascetic, contemplative interior struggles that animate their exterior behaviour.

Christian Peacemakers!

Glad to hear a podcast about Christian peacemaking and radical discipleship from a multi-tradition background, and so far the guests have been 10/10 (or 1 for 1, but those are good stats!)
I'm excited to see more content and encouragement for followers of Jesus committed to the Kingdom call of empire-resistance and radical reconciliation that is so few and far between in these weird times.

Awesome!

Thank you Jarrod and Andrew for the vision and execution of this podcast and great choice for the first guest in BZ! Looking forward to listening to many more episodes. If people are looking for podcasts to learn about the power of love and nonviolent peacemaking, I couldn’t recommend enough to listen to this podcast!
