You send in your questions.
We give our honest responses.
Check out some of the questions from Season 2 so far...
Here at The Kate and Colby Show, we buy in to the inherent goodness in all humans. But that belief can get clunky. In the Season 2 Premiere we get in to it!
As self identified "progressive Christians," we often times take a critical posture toward the conservative world from whence we came. In this episode, we respond to one listener who feels like we are "attacking Christianity."
One listener is really struggling with what feels like a "loss of faith in God." So we respond with our thoughts on who/what God is, and what we think about the idea of "faith."
Hello Pod Pham, we're just so happy to introduce you to some of our favorite people this week! Yes, Erica and Logan Martin are family (Colby and Logan are brothers), but that's far from the only reason why we wanted to sit down and have a conversation with them. They have an incredible story about their journey together and as individuals as they've navigated a lot of loss in leaving church and a lot of new life on the other side. These are beautiful people doing beautiful work in the world, and we think you ought to know about them. Thanks for listening!
Pod Pham! We are so, so delighted to bring you today's conversation. Welcome Paula Stone Williams: pastor, counselor, coach, speaker, and so much more. We have both been so lucky to get to know Paula as a friend—she is a kind, wise, straight shooter who has done so much to help us come more alive. If you haven't encountered her yet, it's a treat to make the introduction; and if you have, we bet you'll still find some powerful resonance with the stories she shares in today's really special interview.
Pod Pham, check it out: For the first time in our show’s history we have guests! In this rambunctious and oft-tangented (but the tangents are GOOD, dangit!) episode we sit down with the co-hosts of one of our favorite podcasts, Heathen: Spiritual Conversations for the Godless. Matthew Blake and Karyn Thurston host an incredible podcast that creates sacred space for those who have history with either leaving or being exiled from their faith community. Full of laughs, inappropriate comments, and free-therapy, this episode is a keeper.
Gardening & woodworking & parenting, oh my. We love the metaphors that kinder-gardener Alison Gopnik shared on a recent episode of NPR's Hidden Brain podcast, and it sparked our own discussion about raising children. Let's talk the relatively new idea of "parenting," and what we can learn from the art of gardening.
What happens when you're already enjoying a book before you realize its author is an unofficial spokesperson for the Alt Right? Today's conversation is a deeply nuanced look at our reactions and responses to people when we discover they're not perfect, have different ideologies than we do, or break faith with us—otherwise known as "cancel culture." What does it mean to receive information from sources we might disagree with—or are we better off in our bubble?
Welcome to season three of The Kate and Colby Show! We're excited to be back and we have a whole new series of questions and topics to talk through, starting with what it's like to grow up girl. Kate shares a piece she wrote about how it comes to be that the only question young girls are taught to answer is, Am I pretty? Then we talk it out: feminine/masculine roles in society and church, the ways we learn to interact with each other based on sex, and more.
(Originally aired December 20, 2017.) Welcome to the final episode of season 1! Kate and Colby close out their 4-part discussion about their faith journeys by talking about how they're different now that they've moved from a conservative to a more progressive understanding of Christianity, as well as the (surprisingly few) things they would tell their younger selves about what they know now. Kate opens with a meditation on motherhood and pursuing your own passions, then she and Colby share what's making them come alive—which happens to be the same thing for both this week!
Ready to get real? Kate and Colby talk about the myth of a Christian marriage and share some of their own story along the way. Kate imagines what she'd do with a time machine - do we tell our younger selves the things we've learned, or do we let them experience the reckonings to come? Lastly, what do pop star P!nk and those cute Dreamworks Trolls have in common - besides brightly-colored hair? They're both making Kate and Colby come alive.
(Original air date: January 17, 2018) We're continuing to sift through some of the questions you've sent our way, and today's is a doozy! Andrea wrote in to share that she's become an "accidental agnostic," and wanted to know what we think about the nature of God. Being, spirit, energy, force, guy in the sky—what do we mean when we say "God?" Let's dive in the deep end together!
(Original air date: October 24, 2017) This week Colby talks about what it means to be in the splash zone, then he and Kate get into current events with a discussion about Colin Kaepernick, the NFL, and #TakeAKnee before finishing with two very different but equally impactful book recommendations to help you come more alive.
