Upside Down Podcast
About This Show
Upside Down Podcast features unscripted conversations on life and faith. Join us as we gather women from different perspectives around the table to discuss life in God's upside down kingdom. We dive into justice, spirituality, and Christian culture. No topic is off limits as we learn how Jesus changes everything.
Upside Down Podcast is a collaborative, Christian podcast. Some of our most popular episodes include Hashtag Blessed, Downward Mobility, Gentrification, and a special interview with John Perkins, civil rights leader and founder of the Christian Community Development Association. Upside Down is proud to be an ecumenical podcast, bridging the gap between Catholic and Protestant thought.
Upside Down Podcast is hosted by Kayla Craig, Lindsy Wallace, and Shannon Evans. Visit www.upsidedownpodcast.com or follow us on Instagram at @upsidedownpodcast.Read more »

Episode 41 - Intentional Community (And an Upside Down Gathering in September!)
In our last regular episode before summer break, we gather to talk about community: not the hashtag or the social media version, but the essence of community as a sense of place and belonging. Host Kayla Craig is joined by Lindsy Wallace, Shannon Evans, and special guest, Rebekah Troche, who lives at Jesus People USA, a church and intentional community in Chicago.
In this episode, we:
Learn about JPUSA’s mission and ministry and why Rebekah was drawn to it;
Share our vision for this fall’s Upside Down Gathering;
Talk about how vulnerability and trust play a role in community;
Bring forward tangible ways we can begin to cultivate community; and we
Tackle listener questions about how to deal with conflict and how an introvert can find respite amid a community-building lifestyle.
Join us as we recognize how intentional community with others is pivotal to the upside-down life.
