After years of struggling to reconcile being gay with my Christian faith, I've come to realize that many other people are in similar interstitial places. This podcast is an invitation to explore those uncomfortable places between religion, science, and sexuality.

Customer Reviews

Genuine and Earnest

Stephen is a wonderful hosts with genuine interest in what he is talking about and has a knack for finding the appropriate guest for the topic.

Good News for Queer Folk

Wow! I just listened to 2/3 of the “Timothy” trilogy and it is a deep dive into queer theology fleshed out in a life.

Atheism or agnosticism seems to be the least painless option for queer people of faith in toxic environments but Timothy refused to shy away from the liminal spaces of desire and mystery.

Equally accessible for straight and queer folks alike this podcast is well produced and not too full of insider terminology or humor (although it is undoubtably there).


While I’m certainly biased because Stephen is a dear friend. Nevertheless this podcast is excellent in quality and content. It will stretch you on all levels which is in my opinion essential for any growth to occur. This podcast is well worth your time I promise you won’t regret it.
