In this episode Andrew and David do something a little different by sitting down to discuss a topic that might not be the first thing to come to mind for a podcast that explores the connection between the sacred and the secular. SPORTS! and politics... Whether you like sports, or don't, or like "politics" in your sports, or don't, it can't be denied that the tapestry of our social fabric has every aspect of our lives connected, from Race, to Sports, to Politics, to Loving Kindness, and it's difficult to keep them all in their separate buckets. So please join us on this journey as we try to keep a wide angle lens on the world in which we live.
Humility, passion, kindness, and brilliance all shine through in this episode of Hyphenated Life. A perfect guest for a podcast that covers topics at the intersection of the sacred and the secular, our conversations cover the spiritual, political, and social state of our country from the perspective of this titan of the theological world. We also discuss how Serene's upbringing and generational history shaped her worldview and life path.
The Book of Hebrews

The Book of Hebrews


"We welcome guest co-host George Mason who interviews Anne Scalfaro and Andrew Daugherty about their newly released book of a collection of sermons about the New Testament book of Hebrews. Hebrews contains one of the most sophisticated discussions of the meaning of Jesus for the life of faith today. Andrew and Anne engage deeply about a complex book that makes Hebrews relatable. They guide us through a relevant way to hear the voice through whom God spoke in the first century, and who also speaks to us in the twenty-first century."
Chaplaincy Reimagined

Chaplaincy Reimagined


Jamie Beachy's interreligious background as a former Christian minister with a deep interest in Buddhism and earth-based indigenous practices emerged through engaging the wisdom of care seekers, colleagues, students, and non-human relatives.  As the current director of  Naropa University's Center for Contemplative Chaplaincy Jamie teaches other care givers and healers how to care for themselves in this potentially exhausting path of work. Among other topics, Andrew and David talk about how Jamie got to where she is in her life and career, as well as her work in more expansive understandings of Chaplaincy, care giving, and personal healing around trauma related wellness issues. Jamie is on the front lines of the up and coming science based healing movement centered around the use of psychedelics.

In a time when national healing is such a deep need, today we talk with public theologian, author, and pastor, Dr. Steve Shoemaker, about reality-based religion, the collective psychosis of our country, the tangled beauty of America and original sin, a poetry of protest and praise, and how we move forward toward justice and healing for all people.Rev.

He served previously as pastor of Myers Park Baptist Church in Charlotte, NC, Broadway Baptist in Fort Worth, TX, and Crescent Hill Baptist Church in Louisville, KY.
Bobbi Jo: Under the Influence is one of the most inspirational stories you will ever hear. For 25 years, Bobbi Jo Reed has rescued thousands of addicts. But before she could help others, Bobbi Jo needed to help herself. This true life story takes an honest look into the world of alcoholism and addiction and provides keys to long term recovery in Kansas City’s most dangerous neighborhood. After a middle class upbringing, Bobbi Jo turned to drinking and drugs at a young age. Soon, her life spiraled out of control. Addiction led to abuse, prostitution, and homelessness. When she hit rock bottom, Bobbi Jo had a spiritual awakening. With newfound strength, Bobbi Jo was lifted out of a personal hell. That strength gave her the courage to return to the streets to help others. Using the testimony of her dark past as a “blueprint of hope”, Bobbi Jo Reed reflects on her transformation. How she was saved. Why she was chosen. And why more than 10,000 souls now call her, “Mom.”

If 2020 Was A Meme?


We close out our first season of Hyphenated Life life with a look to the future; the future of a world post-pandemic, the future of this podcast's second season, and with questions of the future abounding but hope even more.A favorite 2020 meme we consider: If you're going down a river at 2 mph and your canoe looses a wheel, how much pancake mix would you need to re-shingle your roof?This is 2020 in a fun math problem!In this last episode of our inaugural season, we close out the year with some fun conversation between Andrew and David.

Merry Christmas Eve to all the listeners and lovers of Hyphenated Life podcast! Since Christmas Eve falls on a Thursday this year, the day of the week we release our Hyphenated Life podcasts, we decided to tickle your sacred vs. secular sensors with a delve into one of the formative quotes for the basis of Hyphenated Life. That quote of course is from Madeleine L'Engle, and her book "Walking on Water: Reflections on Faith and Art"“There is nothing so secular that it cannot be sacred, and that is one of the deepest messages of the Incarnation.”This idea has been both inspirational and foundational to our outlook on the world. We're excited to hopefully share this special day with you as we celebrate the humanity and the divine in all of us! Merry Christmas!

Actually recorded last December (2019), and stashed away for safe keeping, this special (pre-pandemic) Advent-themed podcast has Hyphenated Life joined by Elizabeth Myer Boulton, the President of the SALT Project. The Salt Project is self-described as "...a nimble, fun, boutique production powerhouse ready to create bite-sized social media content, commercials, visual mission statements, book trailers, and impression pieces for you and your organization. We love creating sharable, memorable film content that tells your story in a crisp, compelling way, helping get the word out about who you are and how you’re changing the world." Liz, Andrew, and David delve into their personal experiences in telling stories and how they find themselves living in the "hyphen" of God's sacred-secular world. This special "Adventy" podcast ironically (or not) includes spending a bunch of time discussing Good Friday as well as their favorite words.
Hyphenated Life gets to sit down with Ryan Daniel Dobson, the writer and director of the film Hosea, produced by Avril Speaks and Suzanne Watson, who also join us for this episode. Together we explore the expressive crossover of the sacred and the secular worlds of a cast of characters in modern day Oklahoma City and the Old Testament biblical story of the minor prophet, Hosea. The film itself is a modern-day retelling of this ancient story through the eyes of its forgotten female character, Gomer, Hosea's wife, represented by the character Cate in this inspiring film. Find out more about the film HERE
