The Good Kind of Pain

We all KNOW we’re supposed to work out, but knowing that doesn’t make many of us do it. Seth and Tsh aren’t workout-obsessed, but as working parents in their early 40s who’d like to be around a good while, they’ve reaped the benefits of doing the hard work anyway. How do we find the motivation we need to keep moving, even when we don’t feel like it? Recognizing the sacramentality of our earthly bodies definitely helps.Seth: Website | Newsletter | Twitter | InstagramTsh: Website | Newsletter | Twitter | InstagramJohn BlaseSome Kind of Peace, by Ólafur ArnaldsThe Repair ShopAnglopheniaSupport the show (https://www.buymeacoffee.com/drinks)
January 6, 2021. How do we make sense of it? The short answer is we don't; the longer answer is that we choose joy, hope, and peace though we've considered all the facts. Seth and Tsh check in on how they're doing with all the news, work through how we deal with the emotions of witnessing a Christian-based insurrection, and process how to still be a good neighbor with those we disagree. The key to everything? Friendship.Seth: Website | Newsletter | Twitter | InstagramTsh: Website | Newsletter | Twitter | Instagram“The Peace of Wild Things,” by Wendell BerrySeth explains the First Amendment“A Tragic Day” and Reclaiming Hope, by Michael Wear“A Christian Insurrection” and The Dispatch, by David French“Why You Need an Untouchable Day Every Week,” by Neil PasrichaThe Bible in A Year Podcast with Fr.

Humans love (and learn best through) stories. But we have so many options at our fingertips compared to all of human history that it’s now a virtue to curate well what we make time for and allow in our imaginations. Tsh and Seth explore what it means to curate stories as a sacramental act (and also share some of their favorites).Seth’s website and newsletterTsh’s website and newsletterIt’s not too late to order Shadow & LightThe Common Rule, by Justin Whitmel Earley“Bad Art Warps Our Vision,” by Leah Libresco SargeantPeace Like a River, by Leif EngerEast of Eden, by John SteinbeckDead Poets SocietyAlmost FamousBand of BrothersHome FiresChef’s TableIt’s A Wonderful LifeA Christmas Carol, by Charles DickensThe Muppet Christmas CarolLittle Women, by Louisa May AlcottLittle Women, Greta Gerwig’s movie adaptationHow to Write One Song, by Jeff TweedyThe 25th, by Joshua GibbsBrowse Tsh’s recommended booksPay what you want for Tsh’s audio workshop, Create Your Rule of LifeCheck out all the shoes, bags, and masks available right now at Rothys.com/GOODLIST.Read the transcript of this episode hereSupport the show (https://www.buymeacoffee.com/drinks)
Doomscrolling is a new-but-real habit in our culture, and it’s not good for us — yet we all fall prey to its siren song of despair.

It's always been easy in our culture to numb ourselves so we don't have to face honest truth, goodness, and beauty. ...The temptation's been even stronger in 2020. So what does it look like these days to posture ourselves toward healthy adoration — to devote ourselves to what is actually true, good, and beautiful, even when it's hard?

The next few episodes will feature a special series called A Drink With a Friend. Tsh talks with her longtime friend and fellow writer Seth Haines, where over drinks they'll discuss what's meant by "sacramental living." What the heck does that word mean? How is it different than just being religious? And what does it have to do with our day-to-day life? A lot, it turns out.Seth's website and newsletterTsh’s website and newsletterThe Thousand Autumns of Jacob De Zoet by David MitchellThe Inspector Gamache series by Louise PennyOrder Shadow & Light and join the Advent CommunityBrowse Tsh’s recommended booksPay what you want for Tsh’s audio workshop, Create Your Rule of LifeHead here for an episode transcriptSupport the show (https://www.buymeacoffee.com/drinks)

These five help, either by helping us stay informed or by helping us recalibrate with something besides the news. Throughline from NPR / episode: The Evangelical VotePantsuit Politics / episode: Political ShiftsJesuitical from America Media / episode: Joe Biden’s Catholic FaithOn This Day in Esoteric Political History from Radiotopia / episode: The President Catches the Virus (1919)Poetry Unbound from The On Being Project / episode: A Blessing by James WrightOrder Shadow & Light and join the Advent CommunityGet Tsh’s weekly email, 5 Quick ThingsBrowse Tsh’s recommended booksPay what you want for Tsh’s audio workshop, Create Your Rule of LifeHead here for the episode transcriptSupport the show (https://www.buymeacoffee.com/drinks)

Because of this paradox about the internet: that it can be both a thing of beauty and a dumpster fire, we all have to do our individual parts to make it more of the first description: a place of needed connection, education, encouragement, and personal and communal growth, and much, much less of the latter. There's more than one way we can do this, but this episode is about one specific idea.Subscribe to Books & Crannies, Tsh’s newsletterPlease take the short listener survey!Order Tsh’s new book, Shadow & LightBrowse Tsh’s recommended booksSign up for Tsh’s audio workshop, Create Your Rule of Life (pay what you want)Who Tsh supports on Patreon: Annie Jones’ From the Front Porch, Beth & Sarah’s Pantsuit Politics, The Catholic Traveler, Dear Hank and JohnWho Tsh supports on Substack: David French’s The Dispatch, Claire Diaz-Ortiz’s Newsletter, Knox McCoy's Sectional Healing, Amber Haines’ Story Letters, Seth Haines’ The Examined Life, Circe Institute’s Forma Journal, Hank Green’s Pay Attention, Nicole Bennett’s Book is the Watchword, Mark Galli’s Galli Report, Jeff Chu’s Notes From a Make-Believe Farmer, Stephanie Smith’s Slant Letter, Michael Wear’s Reclaiming Hope, Anna Cordrea-Rado’s The Professional Freelancer, Sarah Bessey’s Field Notes, Erin Moon’s The Swipe Up, and Caroline TeSelle’s I’ll Be Witty TomorrowThe Repair Shop, on NetflixCheck out the fantastic shoes and bags available right now at Rothys.com/goodlistHead here for the episode transcriptSupport the show (https://www.buymeacoffee.com/drinks)

It's helpful to adopt a homeschool mindset — even if you "do" school more traditionally. Here are four ways to think about education especially during fall 2020 (but anytime, really).
