Episode 24 - This week we have a powerful interview with Rev. Phil Snider. If you've ever sat bored in church, feeling like the preacher is barely scratching the surface of where we can go with spirituality, we feel your pain; and so does Phil, which is why he preaches in a radically subversive way. We talk about Preaching as Resistance, and his book of the same name. Find out more and pre-order the book here.
