Want something new to listen to?

I’m taking things easy for a month, seeing some extended family and then taking a little holiday.

So instead of recording new podcasts on Thursdays, I thought I’d share three picks that you may have missed! Two are OTHER podcasts I’ve been on, talking about She Deserves Better. The nice thing about listening to other people’s podcasts is that I tend to give an overview of the whole book, while on the Bare Marriage podcast we tend to talk about just one aspect per episode. So you get something different!

Today I want to share two very different ones with you: One that’s aimed at a younger, more progressive audience, and one that is aimed at moms in your typical evangelical church that want to do this better.

So listen in!

A Pastor and a Philosopher Walk into a Bar

This podcast is aimed more at those who are trying to reconstruct their faith, and provide a place to talk honestly about important issues without any pat answers that are commonly given in evangelicalism.

I had an awesome time with this one, and was asked some questions I don’t normally get on other podcasts.

(There is a long segment on bourbon tasting before I come on!)

Pastors’ Wives Tell All

I seriously love these ladies! I’ve been on their podcast a few times, and we always have a really fun conversation. 

This was one where we all talked about what we wish we hadn’t said in the past when we were in charge of youth groups! But when you know better, you do better. 

A Highlighted Bare Marriage Episode

In looking back over this last season, two episodes back to back last September really stood out to me, and if you haven’t listened to them–then I’d highly recommend them again.

Marriage Misdiagnosis: What if we’re asking the wrong questions?

Let’s look at how marriage advice in Christian circles often goes so wrong because we’re asking the wrong questions. For instance, if a husband is watching porn, instead of asking, “how can she draw boundaries and deal with this?”, the question we often ask is, “how can we keep this marriage together, and how can we make sure he stays the leader?” And it leads to horrible advice like the example we give from John Piper.

There’s a reason that marriage advice often goes wrong, and we explore it here. 

What if common marriage advice MISDIAGNOSES the problem in the relationship? here are some common marriage misdiagnoses and what we should be teaching instead!

How Christian Marriage Books kept Natalie Hoffman in an abusive marriage

Another podcast that still gets lots of plays and comments is our interview with Natalie Hoffman from Flying Free Sisterhood, who joined us to tell her story of getting out of an abusive, quiverfull marriage. And it took so long because she was primed by Christian books to stay.

This was an awesome podcast, and Natalie is such a dynamic guest. 

Podcast with Natalie Hoffman and Christian Marriage Books

Have you listened in to these? What did you think? Do you have other favourite podcasts I should highlight this summer? Let’s talk in the comments!
