Out of Eden Podcast

My second guest appearance on another podcast was on the Out of Eden podcast with Sam Morse – a series he made to document his journey of religious deconstruction!

In Part 1 we talk about the birth of my podcast, my upbringing in the Catholic church and what I used to believe.

In Part 2 we jump right back into talking about belief. Learn about what I used to believe, what I don’t believe anymore and why.

Podcasting as an Art Form

This past December I was invited on another podcast called “The Podcaster’s Life” with Alexander Laurin for my first guest appearance! If you haven’t listened to his show, it’s great. It is really well done and a really informative, insightful podcast for podcasters.

During that interview, Alexander asked me if I thought podcasting was an art. It sparked a really nice part of our discussion and led him to ask me to write a page on podcasting as an art form for his new book, “The Book on Podcasting: An Insider’s Guide to Recording Success!”
