On this weeks’ episode we take you back to the 2nd Annual Here We Still Stand conference in beautiful, if slightly milquetoast, San Diego (just kidding San Diego, we love you, as we have recorded at least once a year from your confines only to eventually praise your street food, socio-economic diversity and weather).
Think of it as part of the road trip, as we recorded this show almost immediately upon returning from our road trip. Stay tuned in the next few weeks as we continue releasing those shows. On this live show we talk with Debi Winrich on her new podcast “the Soul of Christianity” as well as Dr. Russ McCullough from the Gwartney Institute to discuss his work on Christianity and Capitalism.
If you’re still reading, cool. So we can get a little more serious. Not really serious, but just more familiar. This is Dan, I write in the third person plural sometimes, but usually it’s me. So.... hey. This conference was super rad and you will be hearing our talks (mine in some edited fashion) soon. But it was also crazy anxiety inducing for me as it could seem like a kind of intellectual fashion show for a specific type of religious speaker. I had initially thought that we were doing a show that a few people might watch, but not that we were doing an actual live program. You see, an hour or so of intellectual-and-otherwise chit chat isn’t that hard, but it’s also not a live performance. At any rate, I had an acting coach once tell me that the last thing you should do is apologize before a performance. What did she know, anyway? Enjoy the show. Even if it sounds rushed and stilted in the beginning because it was a strange new environment and I felt like a caged animal on display. But it was fun. For reals!
