A while ago, I did a series of posts called ‘People I Read’. In that series, I gave little blurbs about the other blogs and sites I regularly read. It was sort of a callback to the blogrolls of the early days of blogs. I thought it would be nice to do something similar for the podcasts I listen to. So here is a new series of blurbs. As with the previous series, I’ll try to put up a new one every couple of weeks.
Kaleidoscope is a fairly new podcast — as I write this there are only two episodes out (there will be more by the time I publish) — from award winning journalist and writer Deborah Jian Lee. On the podcast, Lee, along with pastor-in-residence Erin James-Brown, explore faith and justice with activities, authors, and spiritual leaders. It isn’t an academic conversation, though. The first two episodes featured deeply person conversations with M. Barclay (the first non-binary trans person commissioned as a deacon in the United Methodist Church) and Eboo Patel (founder of Interfaith Youth Core and former spiritual advisor to President Obama). On Kaleidoscope, there is a profound meeting of personal narrative and broader ideas about faith and justice in difficult times.
