About This Show
TheEditorial's Heidi Legg brings you in-depth interviews with thought-leaders inside and around the cultural Petri dish we call Cambridge, MA. Surrounded with Harvard, MIT, and a bevy of institutes and leading tech and life science companies, we curate interviews that will change the way we look at the world and how we live. We think there is power in putting the Poet next to the Scientist, the Industrialist next to the Artist, and the Social Philanthropist next to the Techie to capture this moment in time. All our interviews are also available in print at TheEditorial.com.

For the past seven years, independent documentary filmmaker Elizabeth O'Brien Gardner has been filming a young evangelical church planter, David, and his wife, Betsy, in Boston – a city Gardner says the evangelical movement calls ‘The Preacher’s Graveyard.’ Her 72-minute documentary, The Frozen Chosen, follows the journey of David and Betsy as they build a congregation of fellow millennials looking for salvation. We meet a young ballet dancer who struggles with his homosexuality and looks to the church for guidance, another young man who is a seeker of sorts, baptized by David and born-again in a dramatic scene of speaking in tongues and what looks like physical possession, and a cast of other millennials in search of community. Many of the youth live around the Fenway and Brighton areas and meet regularly. In a time when fundamentalist religion dominates our news cycle and the country seems more divided than ever, Gardner’s documentary takes a neutral look at how evangelicals are growing their following while asking us to consider how this differs or is similar to the dogma of other movements or building of dreams.
