Called Out Episode 001
Studies show 40 million Americans struggle with some form of anxiety, yet when it comes to an issue so many feel burdened by the church is largely silent.
I’m excited to share with you the first full-length episode of Called Out, my new podcast. Today’s episode is on the subject of anxiety, and was really the inspiration behind starting a podcast. The podcast medium is great for telling stories and because anxiety is an often ignored subject, I thought telling the stories of people who have struggled with anxiety was a great place to start.

Announcing My New Podcast: Called Out
I’ve been an avid podcast listener for over 5 years now. While I still love blogging, I’ve come to value the podcast medium for its ability to tell stories in powerful ways. Podcasts allow for meaningful conversation and storytelling in ways other written-word mediums do not.
With that in mind, I’m happy to announce that I’m launching Called Out: a podcast equipping the church to navigate the tension between its brokenness and healing power.
You can listen to the introduction episode (click this link to listen if you’re an email subscriber). It’s only 5 minutes long, just give it a chance!
The first full-length episode will be released on September 12th. Can’t wait to share it with you!
