Exploring the world inside and outside the evangelical subculture, one conversation at a time. "Exvangelical" is a shared starting point with many destinations; it acknowledges the impact (predominantly white/white-led) evangelicalism has had on our lives, but does not dictate our current or future beliefs & practices. On this podcast, you'll hear stories of people who've left evangelicalism for other branches of Christianity, for other spiritual traditions, and for none at all. All paths ar ...

Note: there is a leveling discrepancy between the intro comments and the interview, which begins around the 10:30 mark. There's been two major shootings in the last two weeks. I try to piece together some thoughts, and combine a couple things from recent essays, in the intro to this re-released episode with Robert Jones. I guess it's best to just l…
 
My guest today is Nick Ripatrizone. Nick is a writer for The Millions, culture editor for Image Journal and author of the new book Digital Communion: Marshall McLuhan’s Vision for a Virtual Age. Marshall McLuhan was a "prophet of the digital age," whose prescient writings about "electronic man" in the 60s and 70s anticipated the effects that new me…
 
Coby joins me on this episode. However, we (... I) ran into technical difficulties. I lost the last chunk of our conversation (and one small part in the middle). But the heart of our conversation was still intact. So apologies to Coby and apologies to you, listener. Coby is the pastor of Ecclesia Clear Lake.…

In this audio essay, adapted from The Post-Evangelical Post, I talk about Twitter's role in allowing "counterpublics" to flourish - and how #exvangelical relates to that. New interviews are coming - due to my recent ear surgery I am still restricted from listening to audio in both ears - which makes editing podcasts difficult. I am enlisting anothe…

It’s been over a month since I’ve released an episode. That was not my plan nor intention. But sometimes life intervenes. Just shy of a month ago, I had surgery to repair a lifelong issue with my ear - ruptured ear drum, and the recovery took much longer than I expected. It required me to slow down. I wrote about this over on my newsletter, The Pos…

Father Jim, rector of St. Andrew's Episcopal Church in Pearland (better known as the Pumpkin Church) has retired from parish ministry. But anyone and everyone who knows him knows he ain't retiring from Kin(g)dom work. I was out of town during his last full week and missed the opportunity to give him a card that the associate pastor was collecting. …
 
Even though my relationship to religion is always shifting, some of the rituals and symbolism have more resonance than others. For me, in recent years Lent has been the most meaningful part of the Christian tradition, even if I'm not sure where I fall in relation to it. In this audio essay, I explore the both-and nature of Lent - through denial and…
 
Bradley, Canon Missioner for Community Life at Christ Cathedral, joins me on today's episode. We talk about his call into priest and what it's like being a priest.

"Why did you leave the Methodist church to join the Episcopal church?" That's the question I get the most on TikTok or when I meet new people. So here's the story. It's not as exciting or salacious as I'd like it to be. A lot of the situations I encountered were results of my actions (or lack thereof). Part 1 today. Part 2 next week. https://linktr…
 
In this conversation, I speak with exvangelical Tiktokker Melissa Stewart (@lissajostewart) about her upbringing, how exvangelical spaces continue to evolve, and how platform differences (i.e. Twitter vs. TikTok) enable different conversations - and much more! As I mention in the introduction, note how Melissa talks about her experiences leaving fu…

In this audio essay, Blake talks frankly about how social media exacerbated a dark day he had recently, how social media affects emotions, and how our relationship to identifiers and communities change over time.
