For the last six months, I’ve been recording at least 3 other podcasts a week–besides my own!
It’s been super exhausting, but super fun.
I did need to pay attention to the exhaustion factor, though, and so Keith and I are camping for two and a half weeks, and bird watching, and I’m knitting, and reading, and just generally rejuvenating out in nature, even if it is stinking hot (though I have no reason to complain compared to you on the west coast).
I’ve decided, then, that for the month of July I won’t be releasing new podcasts of my own. We’ll begin a new season in August, but I think I’ll take a bit of downtime this month.
What I’d like to do on the Thursdays, then, is point you to other things you can listen to–one podcast of my own that really resonated with me and that I enjoyed, and then three other ones that have dropped recently. The podcast I’m a guest on tend to be from a variety of viewpoints, with all different demographics of hosts, so I’ll try to include a big variety so one may resonate with you. So here goes!
Where Do We Go From Here? A Purity Culture Podcast
I love the where do we go from here podcast with Devi and Jessica! They focus on the purity culture message and how that affected people, and how to move forward in health.
This one was really a big discussion focused on the female experience of the obligation sex message:
Rethinking God with Tacos Podcast
Hosts Derek Turner and Jason Clarke are both in ministry, and both rethinking how we talk about God–and everything else! This was a great conversation about how the way we talk about lust and sex is so off in the church. If you want a conversation that’s a little more male-friendly, this is it!
Seeking Health Podcast with Josiah Meyer
Josiah and his wife Anne are on quite the journey. Raised in fundamentalist churches, serving on the mission field and in the pastorate, they’re both now reexamining what they believe and seeking more emotional health. Josiah is still a Christian; Anne isn’t so sure.
If you’re struggling with where to see Jesus in this conversation, here’s a good podcast where we talk frankly about some of the hurt that’s been done, but I show that this hurt was never intended by Jesus.
Finally–one of my own! Lust Isn’t Every Man’s Battle–with the numbers
Here’s a podcast I find myself linking to quite a bit and sending people to–how lust isn’t every man’s battle, and we need to rethink how we talk about it. And we share some stats from our men’s survey in here too! If you missed this podcast when it was first out, listen in!
What if you're NOT the problem with your sex life?
What if the messages that you've been taught have messed things up--and what if there's a way to escape these toxic teachings?
It's time for a Great Sex Rescue.
That’s it for me for today!
I’m going to go relax a little bit more and try to rejuvenate a bit before I head into another big season of writing for our mother-daughter book.
In the meantime, have a great day! And if I’ve been on your podcast and I haven’t mentioned it yet, I’m sorry! I’ll try to share on social media as well. I’ve been on so many its’ hard to highlight them all. But thank you so much for featuring me.
What’s been your favourite Bare Marriage podcast of 2021? I’d love to feature it later in the month!
