Interviews and conversations with nerds, artists, and theologians

Dec 13, 2014

     Welcome to the first episode of the Cringe podcast! As we move into the 2014 season of Advent, I sit down with my very first guest, the Rev. Dr. Walter Brueggemann. Dr. Brueggemann is one of the most influential scholars and theologians of the Old Testament alive today...

     The conversation covers a wide range of topics from the emotional processes that may have been going on behind the writing of the Old Testament, "The Power of Myth" with Joseph Campbell, Neil DeGrasse-Tyson and the Cosmos, and perhaps most importantly, how art and storytelling can create space for covenant and fidelity between the storyteller and the listener.  I ask the questions that I've always wanted to ask him...and you have the opportunity to do the same! During the conversation, we take questions from e-mail, social media, and Facebook. Special thanks to Dr. Brueggemann for participating in this conversation and for sharing his time with all of us.
