I came across a recommendation on FB today for your podcast. I have listened to the pilot and most recent episode. Y'all just nail it. For such a time as this...your words are so needed. Thank you!
Warm, thoughtful, and engaging
As the worship director at a progressive church, I'm always excited to find good media that explores faith and life from a perspective other than the Evangelical one that dominates our current landscape in America. We have a lot of really great books to choose from in that vein, very very little music, and until now only a handful of podcasts. (Kate and Colby's description in the pilot episode, of this media situation re: progressive Christianity, is both funny and deadly accurate.)
I've met Colby a couple of times in real life and I would describe this podcast in the same terms I'd use to describe my impression of him as a person - unfailingly genuine, friendly, welcoming, and smart.
Where some of the other best progressive Christian podcasts (The Liturgists and The RobCast come to mind) often live high up in the stratosphere of the theoretical, intellectual, and existential, The Kate and Colby Show hangs out a little closer to Earth, applying that inclusive, love-centered lens of Christianity to topics like parenting and daily life instead of the meaning of existence. (Though if they go on a metaphysical tangent in some future podcast, I will absolutely tune in for that.) I've really enjoyed the first few episodes and look forward to seeing where they go with this.
So thankful for this podcast!!
When I logged on to Twitter and saw that Kate and Colby had a podcast, my eyes lit up with excitement, and I IMMEDIATELY subscribed!
Kate and Colby are pastors at a wonderful church in San Diego, and if anyone needs a podcast, it's them. As they discuss in the pilot episode, the two of them have faced challenging experiences that have shaped them into the compassionate, inquisitive, progressive Christians they are today. God has blessed them with the extraordinary ability to communicate their perspectives in ways that connect with and uplift those who feel left out or marginalized.
Their preaching has had a profound impact on my life (you should check out the Sojourn Grace Collective podcast, by the way), and I am glad to have had the opportunity to hear them preach in person several times.
The welcoming and humorous tone of this podcast speaks to Kate and Colby's passion for God and God's children (ALL of God's children). I truly believe God has given them the love, compassion, and wisdom to speak peace and truth to the many storms that rage in our nation, and spread the joy of the Lord to all whom they encounter, be they privileged or marginalized.
This is the perfect podcast for a time such as this. God bless 🙏🏽
