Description

What does it mean to live as a person of faith in this crazy moment in American history? That’s the question behind The Faith Angle, a provocative podcast from journalists Kirsten Powers and Jonathan Merritt. From bathroom bills to conservative Christian cake bakers to Pope Francis’ impact, the duo will explore the issues that matter to people of faith. Each episode features an explainer on this issue, discussion of relevant headlines, and a lively interview with a thought leader. Think of it as ‘a survival guide for the faithful in Trump’s America.”

Customer Reviews

So refreshing in today’s political climate

In a world of propaganda, this podcast stands out for its honesty and balance. You get to hear educated tales from all sides, and there is always a spirit of respect and kindness in every episode. Well done Kirsten and Jonathan! Can’t wait for the next season!

Some sanity in a crazy world.

ok at best

Both of these commentators claim to hold to Biblical Christianity, but after listening to a few episodes they seem to be much more adherent to their progressive ideoligies than to their religious beliefs. They admit at certain points ignorance on basic Christian tenents, so you have to give them grace in that they are on a faith journey just like we all are. But, if they are on a journey of faith I don't hear the humble realization of that fact in either of them. The hosts don't really disagree with each other on much so it is kind of an echo chamber. Then when they have a guest on like Eric Metaxas they don't really ask too hard hitting of questions of until he is gone, then they ask people like David French to comment on Metaxas' views when he isn't there to defend himself. The vast majority of the guests agree with the host and the general discussion revolves around being grossed out by Trump and how they can't figure out how anyone could be a Trump supporter. That topic is ruminated on over and over amongst many elitist scoffing type comments.

The big benefit is they do have meaningful discourse. No yelling and I do get the sense that they want their guests to have time to explain their views. But, the scent of liberal/progressive disgust with conservatives lingers over the whole podcast. I get weary of scoffing at conservatives from their "educated" points of view. I don't think I learned anything new from the hours I listened to besides the fact that I don't like listening to this liberal "echo chamber" recirculate all major liberal talking points under the guise of marginally understood Christianity.

If they start interviewing people they mostly disagree with, and asking them substantive questions, I may revisit this podcast. Instead of "science Mike" they should interview Douglas Axe or Stephen Ross. Instead of David French as a conservative voice, get Sen. Ben Sass.
