Losing Our Religion
About This Show
Losing Our Religion is a candid, comedic, sometimes serious look at what life is like after institutional spirituality. These conversations are crafted with love, recorded over shared drinks with friends, neighbors, doubters, and believers. Where people sit down together to have candid exchange while sharing life together without the walls that religion and discriminating ideologies create. Inspiration and hilarity during your daily commute, while you workout, with friends or alone. You can make it into a drinking game if you want. Just take a word from that specific episode title and chug when you hear that word said! Losing Our Religion is a hilarious and candid look at religion and culture, with former pastor, now commune living lover of sinners, Zac Gandara. As he has drinks with other former religious, excommunicated pastors, LGBTQ, artists, poets, anarchists, atheists, punk rock singers, and those considered rejects or recovering religious people.

EPISODE 072: Norse, Pentecostal, Heathenry, Paganism, Thor and My Stones?: Asatru Gothi: Alf Herigstad
2 days ago
Alf Herigstad, he was on the path to be a Pentecostal demon hunting preacher when he became a Norwegian Reality TV Star (Alt For Norge, Season 3) where he found the spiritual path of his ancestors and then becomes an Asatru Gothi. Not in this particular order necessarily, but you get the idea. I ask Alf to chat with me over mead and beers to teach me the ways of Norse Folk Life. Words like pagan, heathen, and diviner are discussed as I try not to shit my pants. I'm a former Christian for heaven sake; I'm not ready for this! Haha, yeah right! He patiently tells me his story, and we find a lot of great connections, spiritual and otherwise. As we end the show Alf invites me to come and experience a Yule Blót and I am curious about him reading my stones, my Rune Stones that is.

Somebody pinch me...I honestly can't believe I found this podcast. Real, candid, and transparent truth. So helpful. I've never heard anyone be this honest about their experience, along with the joy of being able to relive the former hate, and join in relationship with those that where shunned by the religion.
