    106: Reflects | Roe v Wade Overturned

    106: Reflects | Roe v Wade Overturned

    Overturning the United States Supreme Court ruling on Roe v. Wade has been something that anti-abortion folks have had their sights set on for years and recently, they seem to have got their way. On a previous Reflects show on abortion, we discussed aspects of why this was a goal and some potential issues with it but now it's a reality and the conversation is a lot more sobering.

    We know that this issue is complex and none of us are legal experts (or women) but we hope that we're able to start the part of this conversation in a post-Roe world in a biblical, thoughtful, and human manner and we'd love for you to join us! Send us an email, DM, voicemail and join the discussion.

    105: Substantive Cinema | Us (2019)

    105: Substantive Cinema | Us (2019)

    We realize it's been since April that we did our last Substantive Cinema (a great show with Tyler Huckabee that you should all listen to and share with others if you haven't yet!), the perils of pivoting release schedules but we're back on track with an excellent one!

    Jordan Peele's 2017 directorial debut Get Out was a smash commercial and critical success (and we had Eugene Park on to discuss that back on Ep #62, link is below). Anticipation and expectations were high for his follow up two years later, and though his next effort, Us, released to very mixed reactions, there's an abundance of substance there and we had a great time revisiting it as we look forward to his next movie, Nope, releasing this coming weekend!

    Give it a listen and send us an email or a voicemail and let us know what you thought of the film and our takeaways. And let us know if there's someone you think we should reach out to for inevitable SC episode on Nope!

    104: Substance Wives Takeover! | Crissi Curly on Art, Representation, and Black Joy

    104: Substance Wives Takeover! | Crissi Curly on Art, Representation, and Black Joy

    We've been talking about doing this for a while now and a number of listeners have suggested it previously so we are very excited to bring you the first Substance Wives Takeover show! Sadly, we only have two thirds of our wives on this one but we think you're going to enjoy it! This week Anna Marinello & Christina Akin are joined by their friend and local Kansas City artist Crissi Curly to talk about her art and how she's chosen to use her platform to spotlight and promote joy and flourishing. 



    Crissi's work is a blessing to us and we hope it's a blessing to you as well!

    103: Reflects | SBC Sexual Abuse Report

    103: Reflects | SBC Sexual Abuse Report

    We're back with the core Substance Team doing a Reflects episode but sadly we are back talking about abuse and how it is mishandled in the Church. Some have already moved on as the Guidepost Solutions Report was released a whole month ago but we wanted to take some time to read it (though not in its 288 page entirety), digest it, and see what others were saying instead of just adding to the pile of hot takes that are out there. The grievous actions (and inactions) described in the report are great and we hope that we've treated them with the measured thoughtfulness they deserve. It's not a fun topic but if you have any thoughts you want to share with us, feel free to email us or leave a voicemail (it is 2022, after all).

    102: Substantive Stories feat. Kyle Strobel | Where Prayer Becomes Real

    102: Substantive Stories feat. Kyle Strobel | Where Prayer Becomes Real

    We are excited to welcome back Kyle Strobel to The Substance! Kyle is a preacher, the Associate Professor of Spiritual Theology and Formation at Biola's Talbot School of Theology, and the author (and co-author) of several excellent books.

    You may remember Kyle from when we had him on back on Episode 66 (Listen here!) and talked about our relationships with power. We highly recommend checking that out if you haven't yet!

    This time Kyle joins us to talk about something we'd all like to have a better handle on- prayer. Topics include: What's on the line when it comes to our prayer lives, "the good news" of prayer, why we shouldn't try to "fix" ourselves, the role of personal and communal lament in our prayers, and more!

    We hope you enjoy and are encouraged by this. If you are consider sharing it with your friends and family as word of mouth is the best way to spread the show!

    Scheduling Update!

    Scheduling Update!

    Hey everyone! It's a little different this week.

    Last week we announced that, for now, The Substance will be transitioning to a biweekly release schedule. We love doing the podcast and putting it out for free but we all have a lot more responsibilities than we did when we relaunched and in order to continue to put out biblical, thoughtful, human, and substantive content on a regular basis we needed to make this change. Episode 102 will come out next week and we will be on an every other week release schedule going forward for the time being!

    In the meantime, we have a library of 100+ episodes that are designed to be evergreen. Feel free to go back and check out the episodes you may have missed and share them with your friends & family who would appreciate them. And if you'd like to help us ramp things back up release-wise, this may be a good time to join us as a monthly supporter on Anchor!

Refreshing & well balanced

This a well balance podcast that talks about every single topic and it doesn’t have a specific theme which is refreshing. The podcast core is coming from a Christian point of view but it is not preachy. The hosts (Vincent, Trevor, & Phillip) have great chemistry & they don’t talk over each other. Sound quality is great and the podcast is well produced so you don’t get distracted from the topic by subpar sound quality and background noises. You also hear different point of views from the hosts so they don’t agree all the time. Each episode is a little over an hour or longer and it goes pretty fast. I’m happy to have found this podcast and it will be part of my podcast shows rotation going forward.

Adds value to my life, feels friendly

I have really been enjoying The Substance Podcast! As a stay-at-home-mom I don’t always make the time to read a ton of books, so this podcast is a great way to get encouraged and educated. I learn something every episode! These guys have a great presence that doesn’t feel stuffy or pretentious. I often find myself smiling along with them. Thanks Trevor, Phillip and Vince!

Can’t define a hotdog

Honestly it would be five stars. They have great analysis and takes on a variety of topics and consistently use a solid, orthodox, biblical framework. They always bring it back to what the Bible actually says, and they are willing to challenge their own cultural conceptions and sacred cows in light of the Gospel.

However. And this is a big one. There is a very liberal take on hotdogs. Hotdogs are clearly not a sandwich, and yet, Trevor continues to cling to this heresy. If you can’t properly define a hotdog, I question your discernment. Faithful in little, faithful in much.
