Way back in April 2017, Hank Green joined us on the podcast. But chances are, many of you who listen in 2019 have never heard it! On this week’s episode, Bart Campolo introduces that conversation, in which he and Hank talk about individuals versus groups, how to get on the same page with people in your life, how to make the most of your talents and opportunities, and how to humanize the internet.

Hank Green is a web content producer, vlogger, and now author. His new book, out now, is called An Absolutely Remarkable Thing.

On Patreon this week: The 5th of 8 sessions of long-form conversation between Bart and his famous evangelical father, Tony Campolo, recorded for the film Leaving My Father’s Faith (available on Amazon). Get the new session HERE.

Where was Bart last week, why didn’t he answer anyone’s emails or calls, and why didn’t we release a new episode of the podcast? That’s what producer John Wright demands to know at the start of this week’s Q&A episode. In response, Bart lets us in on a week of private grief, and some of the thoughts that accompany it.

We finish the episode with a 10-minute guided meditation / thought exercise with the aim of helping us love others more effectively.

Takeaways: Some of life’s experiences arrive with a ‘gravity’ that makes them especially hard, and especially disruptive. It really is true that you never know what people are going through, and so, loving people requires understanding them and making truly effective interventions. Follow the Platinum Rule!

On Patreon this week: The 4th of 8 sessions of long-form conversation between Bart and his famous evangelical father, Tony Campolo, recorded for the film Leaving My Father’s Faith (available on Amazon). Get the new session HERE. (Last week’s available HERE.)

A listener question prompts Bart Campolo to give some advice about how to open up good conversations with your children about sex and relationships.

Our listener is the mother of a 12 year-old girl, who, it is discovered, is interested in a boy at school. The girl’s father is panicking and concerned while the mother simply wants to ask how to keep her daughter out of trouble.

Takeaways: Rather than trying to shut their sexuality down, ask good questions about the kinds of relationships they would like to have, what they want and how you can play a role in shaping it.

On Patreon this week: The second of 8 sessions of long-form conversation between Bart and his famous evangelical father, Tony Campolo, recorded for the film Leaving My Father’s Faith (available on Amazon). Get the new session HERE.

Mentioned in this episode: Dr. Heather Berg, whose work you can check out here.

Sex expert and therapist Dr. Marty Klein has a lot to say about pornography. In this conversation with Bart Campolo, Marty talks about porn and relationships, how people are ultimately responsible for the narrative they’re telling themselves, the importance of novelty in human sexuality, the ‘contracts’ people have in relationships, how people respond to the aging process, and how to take the first step in addressing conflict over pornography.

Marty has been a certified sex therapist for over 35 years and is a popular media figure and speaker. His book on the subject, His Porn, Her Pain, is so good that Bart has read it twice. Get it here. This is the first in a series of episodes about building better relationships.

Starting this week, for the next 8 weeks, we’ll be posting a new audio conversation between Bart and his father Tony Campolo over on Patreon! The long-form dialogues were recorded during production for the film Leaving My Father’s Faith and this is the first time they’re being released publicly. The dialogues cover topics like the nature of belief, the bible, the basis of morality, miracles, homosexuality, humanism, the afterlife, science, abortion, religious experiences, and much more. Go here to listen to the first one!

A listener named Benjamin calls to ask why Bart feels the need to ‘reinvent the wheel’ with secular community-building, rather than simply join a Unitarian Universalist congregation. Benjamin says that he himself has found what he’s looking for at a UU church.

Bart responds to Ben’s question, saying that he loves the UU movement but it didn’t feel like a fit for him personally. Bart goes on to talk about some of the potential differences between communities.

Bart will be speaking at the Freethought Festival in Madison, Wisconsin this Saturday. Tickets and info here!

Gretta Vosper is an ordained minister of the United Church of Canada who, as a self-professed atheist, has survived an official review from her denomination and continues to serve as the pastor of her congregation.

In this conversation, Bart Campolo talks with Gretta about the story of the last few years, why she stays in her church, what her congregation believes about a supernatural God (Gretta doesn’t think it matters), whether the foundational narrative underlying the good morality Gretta is teaching is important or not, the differences between the United States and Canada and whether the social safety net has an effect on the amount of religiosity, and their shared mission.

Gretta Vosper’s website can be found at GrettaVosper.ca.
