    Ep 9: Enter the Minivan

    Ep 9: Enter the Minivan

    This month we hear an interview with Kristen Howerton, a popular blogger who has been operating Rage Against the Minivan since 2006. Howerton started the blog to chronicle her adoption journey, and the platform has expanded to cover parenting, religion, race and other topics. Her writing also has appeared in the Washington Post, HuffPost, and other national media outlets.

    She recently traveled with World Vision to Iraq and Lebanon and was generous enough to be interviewed for the World Vision Podcast, ironically, in the back of a minivan.

    The episode also features music from singer, songwriter Jenn Bostic.

Johnnote79 ,

Great podcast!

I listen to lots of podcasts while commuting or walking, and this is my favorite! The hosts are awesome and personable, and the guests are interesting and share lots of information. After listening to how World Vision works to make better lives for children around the world, I became a donor and sponsor. World Vision does a great job and this podcast does a great job of sharing their vision.
