PODCAST

Podcast: WEIRD RELIGION

I co-host a podcast with my colleague Leah Payne, called “Weird Religion.” We examine artifacts at the intersection of pop culture and religion, often through the lens of some piece of popular TV or film media—episodes focus on TV shows such as Black Mirror, The Bachelor, and House Hunters, documentaries such as Wild Wild Country and Meru, and explore topics such as bioethics, starting and maintaining a cult, romance, the Bible, mountain climbing, and war.

We’re on Apple podcasts / iTunes, Spotify, Stitcher, for those who like to listen that way and subscribe, and we also have a website, www.weirdreligion.com with all episodes and other content. We’ve produced two seasons so far, with a third in the works. See below for two sample episodes!
