Hello! Welcome to the new website! 

Late last year, I ran a Twitter poll asking folks what they’d like to see more of. I was humbled by the result. 


So, since you all asked for it: I’ll be writing about culture, politics, faith (all familiar topics from the show), as well as some more off-topic stuff from time to time. 

Through the top navigation, you’ll find links to subscribe to the podcast, sign up for the Exv Reader newsletter, and info about why I do the show and how you can support it.  

I invite you to look around. Kick the tires. Let me know what you think of the site via Twitter; I’m @brchastain. The site was built on the iterative model (for all you agile methodology fans out there), so things are bound to change over time. 

I can’t wait to hear from you! Here’s to what’s next.


This week’s guest is Rev. Morgan Guyton, author of the book How Jesus Saves the World from Us: 12 Antidotes to Toxic Christianity. We discuss his life, his book, and the toxicity of white American evangelicalism.


The pledge rewards for the Exvangelical Patreon have been revamped! Check out patreon.com/exvangelicalpod for more details.
