This is exactly what I’ve been looking for. Open and honest conversations about issues that most people aren’t brave enough to talk about. Especially in Church. :-D. Engaging hosts and interesting topics. Keep up the great work and thank you for your perspectives!
Punditry That Transcends Partisan Rhetoric
Justin Gaboney, a lawyer by training & Michael Wear, who worked on Faith Initiatives in the Obama Administration offer up a unique perspective and vision for a American political discourse in their weekly surgery of nationally relevant American political news.
They routinely challenge the well-worn narratives of the Right and the Left to move beyond posturing and talking points to an actual critique of the substance behind the style.
What does a political conversation by informed pundits with devout Christian faith look like? Nothing like we’ve seen before. Avoiding the typical way that conservative Christians often just parrot the Right and liberal leaning Christians parrot the Left, they offer a vision for consistent civility and civil literacy sure to make the lobbyists on either side disappointed at times ... which is why I listen each week.
Exactly what I needed!
The hosts share the facts and challenge you to think critically about the issues through the lens of the Kingdom rather then just accepting the narrative of your tribe.
