Throughout the rest of the year, you will hear personal stories from the LBGTQ Community about the impact of embracing who they are and celebrating true freedom. This episode I sit down with John Doolan and Brady Hardin to hear their stories.

Mimetic Theory, Monsters, Hell and God collide on today's Armchair Philosopher Podcasts. Hellbound? Director Kevin Miller joins the conversation to discuss a class he was preparing called Mimetic Theory & Monsters. The class would eventually be cancelled because of events outside his control, but it's a very eye-opening conversation and one that Kevin hopes to transfer into future projects.

We continue with our series Ask Me About My Feminist Agenda and are delighted to have The Rev. Wil Gafney back on the podcast. Her unique approach to The Bible in regards to Race, Gender, and Culture have been a blessing in my own "faith journey."

When I had the idea for this series "Processing Belief Through Music," I wrote out a wish list of songwriters I'd want to speak to. David Bazan was at the top of my list. His songwriting has been a major part of the soundtrack for over a decade now. Scheduling an interview proved that perseverance can be damn hard, but rewarding. As I spoke to TW Walsh and then Derek Webb, Bazan seemed to be the connective tissue of the conversations. It was an honor to be able to speak with David Bazan...
Our series "Processing Belief Through Music" continues as Derek Webb joins me to discuss his music, upcoming album and his tumultuous relationship with Christianity.

I wasn't a fan of Patreon's changing pricing structure, so I took it all down. In 2018, I'll be re-structuring "premium" content for those who are interested in The AxPx Diaries continuing or for those who just want to financially support The AxPx Podcast. Look for a "Patron Saint" page launching soon. Until then, check out the handful of AxPx Diaries episodes I've done so you can get a taste for what the AxPx premium content will be like.
Here's my first "AxPx Diary" episode! Enjoy!
TW Walsh kicks off our series "Processing Belief Through Music." I've been a fan of his music since discovering The Soft Drugs in 2008. Before that, TW spent time on the road and in the studio as a member of Pedro The Lion. Since he didn't grow up around "Christian Culture," his insights as an outsider looking in are valuable.

While Star Wars was a cornerstone to my fascination with Science Fiction and Fantasy, Star Trek's ideas and philosophies gave me more to chew on as I grew up. Today's episode is dedicated to Star Trek and the impact Gene Roddenberry has made in our lives.
