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."
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.
It's the season 2 finale! We've had a great time responding to a whole bunch of listener questions in this season, and we're closing it out with one more big one. Julie wrote to us sharing her thoughts about how we can learn so much from other religions when we approach one another with respect and open minds, but what do we do about the seemingly exclusive claim to truth that Christians often insist belongs to Jesus alone? Specifically, what do we do with the words of Jesus himself found in John 14:6: "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." Let's do a bit of a deep dive into these words from the Bible and see what we uncover. Thanks for tuning in for this round of "Ask Kate and Colby," and we're looking forward to kicking off a new season of The Kate and Colby Show in a few weeks!
A very important question—which came first, the chicken or the egg?—leads to an even more important question: what is masculinity? This extension of last week's episode where Kate interviewed Colby goes deeper into what we've both been learning about gender roles and how we're not truly whole people when we only live into the parts society tells us we're supposed to play. How do we reframe our understanding of masculinity and femininity so that all of us can be both strong and tender, bold and nurturing? This is one of the most important topics we've discussed, and we hope you find yourself coming alive through the conversation.
A couple of episodes ago, we let Colby ask the questions as he interviewed Kate. Today, we're flipping the script and it's Kate's turn to draw some interesting stories out of Colby as we get to know him better. We talked career choices, masculinity, what it's like to be a published author, and more. Find out a bit more about what makes Colby tick in today's special episode.
This week's question from Mary Jo is a straightforward one: what are the most important things you teach your kids? From bodies and boundaries to hospitality to emotional intelligence, here are some of those top priorities for us. Parenting is hard and beautiful and one of the most important things many of us will ever do. Here's to the parents out there!
The Kate Interview! We've had such a great time answering listener questions in Season 2 of The Kate and Colby Show. In today's very special episode, we decided to shake things up a bit. How about Colby asks Kate some questions of his own? Get to know Kate a little better through this incisive, world-premiere face-to-face interview from one host to another.
