Who's Going To Hell? (Episode 14)
Brian Zahnd joins us to discuss hell, hades, sheol, and the eternal fires that burn hot... for them? for you? Maybe. Maybe not. Listen as Brian talks about how the early church preached salvation, how his new book "Sinners In The Hands Of A Loving God" is stirring up this conversation and what (he thinks) Jesus meant when He talks about hell. Listen to understand. Listen to engage. Don't listen to judge. And get your copy of his new book here: http://amzn.to/2jYFe7i

Can We Talk About It Now? (Episode 13)
A powerful interview with Anna Jane Joyner. She gives us scientific, political and theological reasons to at least talk about climate change. Then, we chat about her desire to share a different narrative than that of her father, evangelical/charismatic leader, Rick Joyner of Morning Star Ministries. A few tips on staying in relationship even when you seem to be in total contradiction to those you love most. Listen to understand. Listen to learn. Turn it off when you judge.

Deport Them All? (Episode 12)
A father who is facing deportation. A mother who is having to cover for two. A DACA recipient who fears for his future. And two sons who feel the pain. This is the story of the Chicas family. And it is a necessary reminder of how a political conversation can affect actual human lives. Listen to this interview which was recorded inside the sanctuary where the father lives in.

Will Richard Rohr Pick Up The Phone? (Episode 11)
So yeah. I got Richard Rohr's number through a friend and I called him. We talked about non-dualism, staying sane in the midst of insanity and how to not be so angry (and partisan, and selective). We also talked about millennials, shared some charismatic testimonies (pentecostal style) and decided to stay in touch. Because you know... Richard Rohr is cool like that. Sorry for the terrible audio. Hope you enjoy. Support our non-profit work at HappySonship.com

What's Your Name? (Episode 10)
This week we interviewed pastor and award winning peace activist, Jarrod McKenna. We talked about learning non-violence, transforming hospitality, and then we went on a "know-yourself-know-your-story" rant that helped me massively. Hope it helps you too.

Worth The Protest? (Episode 9)
Brian McLaren joins us to talk about his personal experience in Charlottesville during the Alt-Right demonstration on the weekend of August 11-12 2017.

You Have Issues With Paul? (Episode 8)
I do. And that's why I interviewed Douglas Campbell. A theological giant, who is a professor of New Testament at Duke Divinity and has studies the life and work of Paul for many, many years (And this is my way of saying that he's old). Douglas is a great friend who is vocal about the misrepresentations western Christianity has on the great Apostle. So here he is, setting the record straight on what Paul meant when he told women to shut up, when he sounded like a jerk and when he preached the wrath of God. You might disagree with Douglas, but remember this is Drop The Stones. And also remember, he has a Ph.D. on this stuff. Enjoy. ThePeaceOfTheGospel.com - Use promo codes RDR00010 or CAM00010

Church Hurts? (Episode 5)
If you have been hurt by the church (or you have been the one hurting others) then this is for you. This episode starts with a song, we then move into pain and we finish with hope (and more songs). Join Carlos as he interviews Max Johnson, a talented worship leader who stopped singing church music and is discovering the beauty of honesty and David's painful Psalms. His songs now reflect that very journey. And listening to his pain, might just bring healing to yours.

Supernatural Still? (Episode 4)
Do people really get healed? Can you really start hundreds of thousands of churches? Is casting-out-demons still a thing... or is this all a show? Join Carlos as he interviews a church planter from the east (India) and a missions director from the west (Canada). They discuss supernatural manifestations as they happened in the life of Jesus and the life of the Apostles and (apparently) in their lives, today. A two part interview with Randeep Mathews and Steve Stewart from Impact Nations.
