EPISODE 23: DAVID BAZAN
EPISODE 22: CHRISTINE MOUTIER
In this episode David talks about how his evangelical Christian faith fell apart and how he built his music career through intimate house shows. Warning: This episode contains some explicit language.
Interviewer: Jonathan Williams
David Bazan has never had the answers. His first two solo records, 2009’s Curse Your Branches and 2011’s Strange Negotiations lived inside questions. Questions of politics, of relationships, of addiction, and of God. For anyone looking to art to remove doubt, Bazan is not that refuge. With a catalogue that orbits the darkest corners of the human experience, his songs are the tiny pinprick of light, the first breath coming up for air, the rest stop on a trip with no destination.

EPISODE 5: PETER ROLLINS
In this episode Ryan Meeks and David Lunsford of Eastlake Community Church in Seattle tell their story about becoming fully inclusive and talk about our relationship to our bodies, unhealthy habits of faith communities and how, for a time, the practice of their lives was better than their theology.
Interviewer: Ben Grace
Eastlake is a church for the rest of us, an inclusive Christian community where faith is less about a story to be believed as it is a life to be lived. What we share is a growing awareness that life is gift and what we do with it matters!
