Come to the Table
Summary: Love in action is listening to understand, not to react. This is not a podcast about discussing spiritual deconstruction, reconstruction, contemplation or The Bible. There are numerous podcasts that do that...we know because we love and listen to them constantly. Our intent is taking all that we know and believe at the time and live it out in a conversation while sitting at a literal or figurative table. We won't shy away from a topic or person and we aren't going to have an argument or debate. Here are those conversations. Please feel free to contact us at email@example.com
This “first” episode and one filling the spot of a “trailer” to give you an idea of what the show is about is actually the last of over 100 episodes previously recorded. Take 15 minutes, press play, and if so moved enjoy the treasure chest until we restart the search for these amazing gems. Love in action is listening to understand, not to react.

When I was given the chance to interview Uzma Jafri and Zaiba Hasan, the hosts of the Mommying While Muslim Podcast, I jumped at the opportunity. After listening to the podcast, finding out I grew up 4 years apart and in the same school district as Uzma and getting the chance to talk to them my perspective is no longer the same. This conversation and their spirit are why podcasts go beyond a place to learn stuff. You get to hear the hearts and minds of your fellow human beings.
Neil has gone from a fellow podcaster with a similar show to a close and dear friend. When you find that resonance with someone I've found that typically happens and what helps find that harmony?

Michael and Cici met in jail. There unconventional beginning was par for the course as they navigated their past with the amazing present and future of a harmonious and complimentary love for each other. From the early days of the podcast I would get an email from Michael after each show with commentary. I really loved hearing from him and after learning more about he and Cici nothing made more sense to me than having them on to talk about it.
Transformation is a constant aspect of our lives. It is mysterious, radical, painful and sometimes subtle. Nora Sophia comes to the tablet to talk about her transformation which includes perspectives ranging from growing up in a traditional Catholic home in Texas, to time living on the street homeless to the challenges of playing collegiate tennis. Transformation is...continuously happening you may notice an element of it with the use of Nora Speakman during the conversation or in previous contexts.
Danielle Kingstrom is unapologetic in her pursuit of understanding, discussing and talking about physical, emotional and spiritual intimacy both with herself and others.
