The holiday season is all about food, family, and celebrating the birth of Christ.

Join us for some reminiscing—both of the memories associated with the dishes we brought in and the themes that stood out over the past few mon...

How are actors, writers and directors changed by inhabiting new personas? As part of our ongoing engagement with Christianity and the arts we sit down with two people who are shaping Milwaukee's theatre scene in important ways.

Is one economic system inherently better than all others? What’s the responsibility of such a system? What about the consequences of it? And how ought Christians to interact with it all? We’re sitting down with a professor of economics and a professor of history to chat about capitalism, the free market, how we got here, and where we should go next.

In today’s episode, we’re exploring violence, particularly gun violence, with two justice and public policy professors from our Ann Arbor campus. Tune in to hear their thoughts on where this violence originated, what’s perpetuating it today, and the role that guns play (or don’t play) in the midst of it all.

Suicide rates are on the rise, and in almost every age group, researchers are seeing an increase of individuals struggling with mental health issues.

When we talk about immigration, gun violence, marginalized people groups, or any other hot topic, we often deal primarily in numbers. It’s easy to forget that behind each statistic is a person and a story. Today we chat with Paul Calhoun, a photographer passionate about restoring humanity to the issues of our day through the use of photography. What happens when we live out of curiosity, when we start really listening and paying at...

The history books don’t tell the story of Native people well or accurately; they often skip over the horrors and injustices inflicted on them in the name of God, government, or both. In this episode, we sit down with Tim Young Eagle, executive director of Lutheran Indian Ministries, to grapple with the Church’s role in perpetuating and even leading the colonization of Native people and the generational trauma that resulted from it....

We’re joined by Rev. Dr. John Nunes for a talk about theology at the margins—in particular what it looks like to re-think reformation Christian theology from the perspective of marginalized people. As a jumping off point we’ll be looking at the 2017 book Wittenberg Meets the World: Reimagining the Reformation at the Margins. This book is a kind of commemoration of the 500-year anniversary of Martin Luther’s protest against the Roma...

  • If you can never get enough true crime... Congratulations, you’ve found your people.

  • Dr. Death

    We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
