That Sounds Fun with Annie F. Downs

What a joy to have such a strong, insightful, and fun woman on the podcast with us today! Kate Bowler is a brilliant writer and communicator and we really dig into some of the hard things going on in her life right now. This conversation is special. For sure. She's honest and kind and a real joy to hang out with. Her new book, Everything Happens For A Reason: And Other Lies I've Loved, really moved me and is worth the read. You're gonna love being friends with Kate.

Here's the thing. I saw Black Panther and I loved it. Then I saw Avengers: Infinity War and I loved it. So you know what sounded fun to ME? Learning more about these superheroes that most of y'all already know and love. And my buddy Tyler Huckabee is just the guy to teach us.... well, me.

So stick around for some incredible thoughts on writing, faith, and superheroes, and where all those worlds collide.

Possibly the most creative person I have ever known, Andrew Peterson  is a songwriter, singer, author, filmmaker, farmer, and pretty much a billion other things. He's just significantly cooler than me, which you'll know soon enough.

If you've been around here for a while, we've been talking for a long time about one of Andrew's songs- The Sower's Song- the one that got me going about myrtle a few months. And we talk about it today on the show- along with writing fiction, Nashville, gardening, songwriting, and the massive role Andrew played ten years ago in my writing career.

His Resurrections Letters albums are just brilliant. I think you are going to love them.

Can't wait to hear your thoughts on this episode!

Christine Caine is one of my favorite voices. She's an incredible preacher, a strong activist against slavery, and just one of a kind. The thing about Chris is she is SO FULLY CHRIS and SO FULLY given over to the work of the Gospel and the love of Christ. It's awesome to watch and massively inspiring. Her new book, Unexpected, just released and it's the power punch you've been waiting to read. This conversation is fun and challenging and convicting and grace-filled. Can't wait to hear your thoughts.

You know I have two real dreams for my friends listening- that you would love the enneagram and international soccer.

The Men's World Cup, the biggest worldwide soccer tournament, begins next week and this summer is the best time for you to jump on board and learn to love the sport. (I hope. I hope so hard.)

So I grabbed two of my favorite dudes and soccer (and comedy) experts- Aaron Chewning and Dave Barnes- and we went DEEEEP into soccer. Stick with us, friends. Lots to learn, lots of soccer player name drops, lots of laughs, and maybe one of my favorite episodes ever.

YOU GUYS WE DID IT.

100 episodes.

And you're still here. (Thanks for that!) 

This one is ridiculous and fun and a sprinkling of stuff that matters and lots of Royal Wedding and a promise about Christmas that you don't want to forget (because I'm never talking about it ever again). Just 100 hot takes.

Y'all have made my life so much more fun. Thank you.
