Some information...

I am a recovering intellectual falling in love with life, equal parts firebrand and contemplative. I think that if ideas matter so much, then the way academics talk about them is criminal. I work with high school kids because adults think they know things. My roommate is an old blind man with four furry legs.

About the Podcast...

Skeptical Mystic is the fruit of my personal pursuit of the mystery of God while being intellectually honest. It is about abandoning cynicism in pursuit of real hope. It aims to reframe conversations about religion so as to subvert ideology, promote genuine dialog, and foster both virtue and the life more abundant. It is a whisper for peace amid the strident clamor to be right.

The Jewish discovery that God is not a god but Creator is the discovery of absolute Mystery behind and underpinning reality. Those who share it (either in its Judaic or its Christian form) are not monotheists who have reduced the number of gods to one. They, we, have abolished the gods; there is only the Mystery sustaining all that is.
