Amazing for spiritual wanders and Christian-ish folk alike

This podcast is so refreshing in the realm of spirituality and post-Christian ideology. Matthew and his guests are so transparent and authentic that by the end of each episode you feel like you've made a new friend. It is endlessly interesting to hear how differently so many of us were raised in the Christian world and where we have ended up today. I'm comforted to know that I'm not alone in my struggles with these topics. I have so much love and gratitude for Matthew's ability to share his world, mind, and heart with us all. <3

Smart and sincere

This is a fantastic podcast for anyone who’s dealing with the after effects of being part of a fundamentalist Christian community. The host and interviewees have smart, informed conversations over how to find identity, stability, and a sense of meaning after leaving fundamentalism. In the present political climate, conversations like this are more important than ever. Can’t wait for more episodes.

Love is simple

This podcast is just so meaningful for me. Apart from the endless search for spirituality conversations that aren’t crazy far off from my antagonistic approach to spirituality, Matthew simply does a great job bridging gaps in the spiritual community that we are all somewhat a part of.

Yea, I can tout him because he is my literal brother, but hear me out. I know to offer support to my brother in everything he does, and it is even easy because he never (almost) makes anything god awful. But honestly, this podcast is a stand alone. I’d absolutely still be listening to it if I weren’t doing the good brother role.

Matthew surprises me at every turn and I feel like I’m meeting a new person. Keep up the amazing work mah “bro”. Ew. I just said that.

Aw I miss you. Can’t wait to be a part of this. ;)
