Justin and Stephen start by reflecting on Breonna Taylor, bureaucracy, and the risk of competitive authoritarianism in American democracy.
Megan DeFranza joins to discuss the lived experiences of intersex people and the risk of literal lifelong damage that can come through the lack of understanding. Megan shares how her search for theological truth led her into a place of advocacy for others, and how following Jesus can lead to moments of holy disruption.
Megan, Justin, and Stephen discuss the practical consequences of ideas and the role of theologizing in shaping our responses to the world. Megan discusses her new film as well as why she continues to identify as an evangelical. Megan also provides some insight on the complex relationship between Intersex and LGBT experiences.
