MennoNerds podcasts include different shows, but currently primarily consisting of two on alternating weeks: Ebony Adedayo and Steve Kimes host the Black Gal, White Guy show. There, they discuss questions of theology and social justice. They also recommend resources for those who want to learn more about the topic and take questions from their audience. Katelin Hansen and Paul Walker host interviews (covering a topic with 1 or more guests) and the occasional panel (several MennoNerds members discussing a topic together). Our guests are whoever we can get that has interesting things to say and who fits our MennoNerds mission statement. Learn more about MennoNerds at mennonerds.com.
