Great interviews Skye with Dr. Kristin Kobes Du Mez on her book! I read and loved her book! For my non-reader friends though, I'm sending the podcast series their way!

Skye... in your description of the "70s man", you described my (Canadian) Dad in ways he would probably find disturbingly familiar. I think you grokked the headspace there.

Please have pastor Tim Oas on the podcast, you could talk to him about the struggles of starting a new church and getting an actual building right when COVID hit. He is also part of the band "The West Coast Feed" which had one song produced by the guy who produces imagine dragons and the killers. I beg you.
