a fresh direction
"unfolded" is a really interesting podcast that expands the homebrewed christianity platform into some intriguing new territory. using stories, turri and barlow try to unveil the beauty and grief of the world in all its strangeness, and they do it well.
this podcast is a must for anyone interested in faith, imagination, story telling, and fresh thinking. though it isn't always immediately accessible, the podcast invites you to contemplate and mull, not simply absorb and move on. the stories are small creative offerings with big potential to provoke you into thinking about the world differently.
also, it's got some pretty sexy production value--i'm talking pro!!!
i think these guys are really doing something unique that people should be paying attention to!
Make yourself a cup of hot tea, sit down, relax and unfold your mind as you listen to Unfolded
Jesse and Matt do a wonderful job of bringing these stories to life. This is not your typical storytelling podcast. I was amazed by what I heard when I listened to the first episode, I could not wait for more. The only downside is waiting two weeks for the next episode to come out. On the other hand, you cannot rush such a good thing. I know that Jesse and Matt take their time and put a lot of work into bringing us a great listening experience.
I would recommend listening to this podcast when you get some time to yourself, take it in, really think about the stories. Listen to them multiple times, they're not that long, short and sweet.
Listen. Share. Tell your friends about this podcast.
A Podcast Triumph
This show is a must listen for anyone who loves creative writing.
