At the very beginning of December, I got an email from a producer of a Christian radio program wondering if I'd go on and talk about whether feminism is compatible with Christianity. [Spoiler: it is!] Oh yeah, and it would be opposite Mary Kassian, well-known author of books like The Feminist Mistake.
I'm still not sure whether it was brave or foolish to agree to this particular debate for my first media spot, but a day or two later found me on the airwaves from phone in my living room for an hour long program broadcast nationally and online. I initially hesitated to put it up here, and then promptly forgot altogether in the blur of the holidays. We hosted a Christmas party that same day, and it's been something of a whirlwind ever since.
I still haven't listened to it, but it seemed to go a good bit better than I'd imagined it might. I mean, I did get to talk about liberation theology and bell hooks on Moody Radio. I am so grateful for the support I received from family, friends, and kind souls on the internet, and I'd do it again in a heartbeat, although hopefully next time under friendlier circumstances and with more time to prepare:)
