Don’t worry, they won’t make you go to church ;)

Customer Reviews

It's niche, but if it's your niche, you will love it!

I knew it! How could this NOT be Kevin Porter's next podcast? Even during Gilmore Guys I could hear traces of it... the humor and genuine warmth and patience and reluctance-to-swear and hopefulness born of a very specific and exquisite pain... surviving a youth wrapped up in the evangelical Christian community. Yeah. Been there. Which is why I sang along with your opening theme like I was still fifteen and chillin' in my youth group room with my youth study Bible open in my lap. This is going to be great.

Kevin & Caroline, I suspect this stuff is already on your to-do list, but just in case: the O.C. Supertones, Spirit West Coast, Veggie Tales, Focus on the Family, 24-Hour Famine fundraisers (I participated in one where we--no joke--staged a kidnapping and hostage situation... for fun... because it was a pre-9/11 world), church plays (our drama ministry specifically staged one "secular" play each year to "engage" the community around us; I couldn't convince them to do Dial M for Murder, not because of the murder, but because of the adultery in the subtext!), Vacation Bible School, church camp (OMG... so many traumatizing stories! Put out a call for those!), I Kissed Dating Goodbye, promise rings, Billy Graham Crusades, Acquire the Fire and other big youth conferences, Yugo and other Mexico missions (and the way so many youth groups tied in a trip to Disneyland on the way home from the mission trip as an incentive...), apparently this list doesn't have an end. Anyway, the well is deep. Go to it. Speak to Jesus while you're there.

So often as an adult in a very secular country (I moved to Norway six years ago), I have felt especially alien because of all this stuff. It haunts and helps me. Equally. And it feels good to laugh about it with people who went though the same thing. Today I consider myself a Quaker, and I have less and less to do with the church of my youth, and yet... when my daughter was born two years ago, my husband and I (who met at a Bible study in college) made the pilgrimage home to dedicate her in front of that church family. What a beautiful, conflicted thing.

Let's make sense of all this gorgeous, atrocious church-kid stuff together. Father-god indeed. (The movie Saved! Okay, I'm done.) Looking forward to many a therapeutic laugh. Good luck!

(Oh! And all the awesome names youth groups use to brand themselves! Now I'm really done...) Have fun!

Heaven Yes!

Y'all... this is what I need! I love Kevin via Gilmore Guys and I'm so excited he's going to dive into this topic. Having come from the Bible belt, Wednesday night youth group, AWANAS, service project, summer camp at Pine Cove/Kanakuk world… It's nice to hear that someone else has had similar experiences and finds the humor in it all. Can't wait to hear more (especially about Jump5... their cover of God Bless The USA still brings me to crying laughter)!

Tears of Joy

I literally had tears of joy in my eyes listening to Episode 0. 1) Kevin is back and we all know we need him in our lives. 2) This is such a great concept!! I grew up going to church and christian rock concerts and to hear others discuss it is so fun. I can't wait to hear them discuss other religions and things related to Christian culture. 3) I smiled more listening to this than I have in weeks. It's just a pure joy. Welcome back, Kevin. Bless you and your co-host and please visit Nebraska. :)
