Ep. 14: A Safe Place for Questions with Dr. Keisha McKenzie

This week’s episode features a conversation with Dr. Keisha McKenzie, aka @mackenzian on Twitter.

She shares her story of growing up in the UK, attending school in Jamaica, as well as her time living in the US, all while engaging her Adventist faith and finding communities that helped her continue to ask the questions she wanted to ask. It’s a great conversation that covers a lot of ground across politics, religion, and sexuality — what she refers to as “the three taboos” on her website.

Follow Dr. McKenzie on Twitter @mackenzian and visit her site at mackenzian.com.

Ep. 12: The Kevin Garcia Needs to Sit in the Front Row

Today’s guest is Kevin Garcia, a writer, podcaster, and all around thoughtful guy. It’s hard to summarize Kevin’s story. Ultimately it’s s story of self acceptance and finding God’s love, but it took time to get there. It’s very moving, but it’s best told in his own words.

A couple notes: the language in this one is a little blue, so don’t play it around kiddos or people sensitive to profanity — just use discretion, ok? Also, Kevin was recording from a public spot, so there’s a lot of really great background ambience happening that I actually dig and I hope you do too.

Also, there is frank talk of suicide and reparative therapy so if that is triggering, please be advised.
