The Outside Voice Show is a podcast (radio show) created by Shane Arden Whitaker in January 2016 for building new relationships with people who might not otherwise visit our church building here in Decatur, IL. The hope is that by participating in open dialogue with others; about their lives, their stories, and their experiences, that we would both begin to find some common ground by which we can begin to build trust and friendship – free of judgement, free of condemnation, and full of love and understanding. "I believe we can get a better understanding of each other when we will simply take the time to ask questions then listen to what is being shared without preparing a response." – @Shane_Arden …or something like this: The Outside Voice Show is giving people the opportunity share their life stories, successes and failures, with people all across the world in hopes of helping others find encouragement within our commonality and the human condition. We hope you will join us on this journey for understanding and truth that begs for us to use our outside voice to help ignite a fire inside. @voice_outside

Let Freedom Scream

6/27/2017
More
With rockets red glare and bombs bursting in the air, we found our flag still standing there as symbol of proof to the validity to the testimonies of sacrifice made in the name of freedom, but did it really even matter... On this weeks episode of the show, we get the chance to speak with one of the founding members of the Audiofeed Music Festival, Jim Eisenmenger. Jim is a CPA from Champaign - Urbana who, over five years ago, decided to throw his hat into the music festival ring following...

Go West Young Man

5/5/2017
More
It's often baffling for me to realize that not all of us have the same desires and dreams for our lives. I have tendency to assume that everyone in the world at some point wants to be a rock star or celebrity, but as I get older I am finding that is not always true. Some people just want to be left alone, or merely loved, or allowed to explore life on their own terms without all the worldly pressure to succeed in something deemed admirable or newsworthy. This week I sit down to talk to...

Is America Worth Saving?

3/7/2017
More
“I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all." The Pledge of Allegiance, as it exists in its current form, was originally composed in August 1892 by Francis Bellamy (1855–1931), who was a Baptist minister, a Christian socialist, and the cousin of socialist utopian novelist Edward Bellamy (1850–1898). However, there existed an earlier version created by Colonel...

Shout Shout Let It All Out

Shout - Shout - Let it all out These are the things I can do without Come on - I'm talking to you - Come on - Tears for Fears What is the most effective way for us to share an idea or a truth with a stranger? Is it best to be straight forward and engage them directly with whatever notion or nugget of wisdom we wish to offer up or would it be better for us to slow things down and get to know our audience first? Of course, the second option certainly sounds nicer if anything, but it doesn't...

Every so often we need to push ourselves and explore the possibilities of our lofty ideas & dreams. For us, today is that day.

Bring Home The Bacon

1/30/2017
More
I find it somewhat humorous that when we hear the word bacon, half of us think of the tasty treat with the unfortunate long-term side effects known to us as bacon, while the other half immediately think of the 1984 major motion picture Footloose star - Kevin Bacon, who we are all just six degrees away from. Either way, bacon has certainly made its mark on the world today by not only being delicious, but also by being the actor/dancer. #BaconLovesBacon So why bacon? Well, other than needing...

Dare You To Move

How well do you respond to life when things don't seem to be going your way? Do you find yourself becoming increasingly frustrated with the constant uncertainty of your life and overwhelmed by the things you can't control but instead they control you? Or are you the kind of person who can see past all the to-do and allow yourself to be comforted in the fact that none of us are really in charge here? My guest for the podcast this week is musician and artist - Jerry Fee @jerryfeemusic. Jerry...

In The Name of Love

1/10/2017

It's a new year and there are lots of new things that will soon become like all the other things, 'old' and seemingly 'useless', but one thing that I don't believe will ever get old for me is hearing the stories people tell about their journey through life, regardless of where they are in that journey. Some stories give me insight into a person's life and teach me how they became who they are now, while other stories cause me to reflect upon my own life. Whatever the case may be, I look...

Finding Normal

1/4/2017

Have you ever experienced life coming at you head-on like defensive lineman ready to rock your world, leaving you wondering why you ever decided to get in the game of life in the first place? That's what our guest Jeff Huxford @drjhux felt like the day his world turned upside following a life-altering accident in the prime of his career as a family doctor. Jeff claims to have lived a fairly normal life as a young man growing up in the Midwest being raised by two loving Christian parents...

I do not like Green eggs and ham. ~ Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss No real rhyme or reason for quoting this famous children's book beyond introducing my guest for episode 36 - Sam (Samantha) Schendel. Sam is a former youth ministry student from a group that I worked with back in 2007. She is a fiery red-head who always marched to the beat of her own drum...

Turn It Up Bring The Noise

Have you ever felt like you were going against the stream of life? Every year salmon migrate from the ocean, swim to the upper reaches of rivers where they spawn on gravel beds. After spawning, all Pacific salmon and most Atlantic salmon die, and the salmon life cycle starts over again. So what's the point? Was it worth the effort? Life can certainly throw a curve ball like nobody's business. When we least expect something can happen in an instant that has the power to disrupt our lives...

A Boy Named Sue

Being from the Midwest and feeling like I've kind of seen it all, I found that I always get excited about meeting what I like to call - New Kinds of People. You know the ones who seem to either have lives completely foreign and opposite of the one I know, or they are so similar in their experience and effects, that it feels like you are only one degree away from Kevin Bacon?... #ItsAThing As I said earlier, I'm from here as they say and I know what he people in Central Illinois are like,...

We Are The Champions

When life gives you lemons, ask for more. Become a lemon trader. Sell lemons at a lower price than the prevailing market price. Build a company which sells lemons. Become an international lemon selling brand. Have profits in the billions. Become rich and keep asking for more lemons. I'm not too sure that is how the old saying goes, but I like this persons' way of thinking. Life certainly does have its moments of 'suck-dom' and you may find yourself wondering what in the heck is going on...

Take A Picture It Will Last Longer

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. But I wonder, what else do “they” say? “Photography is the story I fail to put into words.” — Destin Sparks “When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.” — Ansel Adams “In photography there is a reality so subtle that it becomes more real than reality.” — Alfred Stieglitz “There is one thing the photograph must contain, the humanity of the moment.” — Robert Frank...

Life By Design

We believe every human being is designed to be extraordinary. Living a life filled with purpose and excitement, as well as feeling alive and healthy, is not an exception to the rule - it’s what we consider a normal life. What are you living for? Is it for tomorrow, or today, or for the moment? Do you have a passion or mission that compels you to strive, work, and create? What is it that makes you get up in the morning? We should all have something that makes us tick or trips our trigger...

The Day I Hated God

I wonder if anyone else can recall a time when you told your parents that you hated them? Maybe you didn't get your way, or maybe you didn't get to go do the thing that 'everyone else' was getting to do so you let your parents to know just how upset you were with them by firing off the infamous 'I hate you' statement, followed by some very serious foot stomping on your way out of the room for added effect. We have all been there sometime in our lives, whether we actually verbalized it or...

What are little girls made of? Sugar and spice, And everything nice, That's what little girls are made of. It's so easy for us to assume that everyone else has a life similar to the one we have, but when we take time to hear the stories we begin to see that not all experiences are the same, even if the results seem to coincide to some degree. When we know the back story of a person we are able to move beyond presuppositions and stereotypes that hinder the revelation and the truth that...
