My guest this week is Jamie Wright. Jamie is known online as Jamie the Very Worst Missionary, and recently published her first book, *The Very Worst Missionary: A Memoir or Whatever.* We talk about her book, as well as touching on criticism of mission work, evangelicalism, weirdos, and why the critique of ‘only saying something negative’ doesn’t hold much weight.
