Faith Deficit with Josh Bowman is a weekly program that explores individual stories of faith, religion, and philosophy in an increasingly secular world. We speak with artists, musicians, faith leaders, comedians, writers, politicians, and business leaders to unveil what we’re never supposed to speak about in public: our spiritual beliefs – or lack thereof.

Josh - I love this podcast! And listening to your talk with Kate was enlightening and inspiring. There's so much to explore and learn and I share a lot of the same skepticism you both expressed during the course of your talk, but also openness to different forms of spirituality and healing. I was raised Catholic and have been shedding some of the guilt, and also learning not to be guided by "shoulds" that Kate talked about. I love Louise Hay and affirmations too, and have had the pleasure of going to Marianne Williamson's lectures a few times in my new home of New York. Thanks and keep up the good talks!
I am happy to have discovered this Podcast. It's going to be fun listening to Josh learn about himself and his beliefs as more episodes are released.
Such an interesting podcast
Loving the first few episodes, what interesting discussions with neat individuals from different communities and backgrounds.
