“Fashion and Theology,”
Fashion and theology, we know what you must be thinking...“WTF?!” We tend to push the edges of big topics like theology on our podcast, but fashion…? Go with us on this for a little bit. Tune in, check it out and give this episode a try. You might be surprised at what you get out of it. Bob Covolo has not only one, but two PhDs--one PhD in theology (i.e. the study of God) and one PhD in fashion. Bob is currently the pastor of Theological Formation (yeah, we’re going to have to ask him about that title too) at Christ Church in Sierra Madre. This dude is also an amazing surfer, like really amazing, and an all around great guy. At Transmission Accomplished, we pride ourselves in outside the box conversations. Well, we’ve got one on our hands this week. Bob is an awesome guy and you’ll love the conversation. Tune in this week to hear things get a little dicey as our guest and co-hosts discuss the topic of “Fashion and Theology” with Dr. Bob Covolo, Phd, Phd.

Normally on Transmission Accomplished we like to share and listen to stories. There is just something about listening to ideas and experiences through the lens of a personal story. But every now and then we like to get philosophical and talk about ideas. This week on Transmission Accomplished, our hosts talk about a quote they heard from a writer that has to do with the skill of listening. So put your thinking caps on and tune in. Thank you for joining us and welcome to the conversation. On the art of poetry, the writer W.S. Merwin once said in an interview: “Knowledge is very important. Learn languages, read history, read, listen but above all listen to everybody. Listen to everything that you hear, every sound in the street, every bird and every dog and everything that you hear. All of your knowledge is very important, but your knowledge will never make anything. It will help you to form things, but what makes something is something you never know.” This is why we want to listen to different voices on our show. We want to make something out of our lives, families, communities. We are interested in the art of it. Not just accumulation of stuff, ideas and experiences. We want meaning and beauty. But we have to get outside ourselves. We have to listen.

Why The Heck would You Start A Church?
Why the Heck Would You Start a Church? Pastor Jon MacDonald Let’s face it, churches our known for their dramas, their ups and downs and everything in between. This week on Transmission Accomplished we interview pastor Jon MacDonald on his adventures in starting a church.

Scott Nelson is a craftsman, artist and outdoorsman. Scott also has a palate for wild plants, berries and nuts. To go on a hike with Scott is a full-on education about what is edible in the wild and what will kill you if you eat it.

Dr Jon Ruthven
Episode 4: Science and History of Miracles Jon Ruthven is one smart dude. Professor, author, theologian and expert on a range of topics from theology, church history and miracles (the list goes). We asked Dr. Ruthven to join us in the studio to talk about research and work he has done on miracles, and in particular, the scientific study and history of miracles. Whatever a person’s view on miracles might be, we thought this would at the very least make for an interesting conversation. So sit back, relax and enjoy the ride as we cover some serious ground in this week’s episode, the “Science and History of Miracles”. Transmission Accomplished is a show about bringing stories together. Hosted by two friends from very different walks of life, each week’s podcast features outside the box conversations about life, religion and spirituality. In today’s world of divided opinions and conflicting perspectives, Transmission Accomplished is a whole new way of thinking. Instead of shying away from topics and conversations because of differing perspectives, we see each person’s unique experiences, rough edges and points of views as resources for growth and forward motion. Transmission Accomplished is based on the belief that each person is like a wheel with teeth on them and, like gears working together, we are better off and can truly move forward when we come together with our differences and uniquenesses. Tired of status quo conversations that play it safe and go nowhere? You won’t find that here. Transmission Accomplished is an unsafe place for hard hitting conversations that work toward productive conclusions and perspectives. If you are on the journey, still have some growing up to do and things you need to go through, then this is probably not the place for you. However, if you’ve gotten your ass kicked, gone through some stuff and been beaten and shaped by life into a stronger person, then jump on board. We want to hear from you.

The Bridge To Nowhere
My friend Tim Klein was killed on June 2, 2018 in a climbing accident on El Capitan rock in Yosemite Valley. Both he and his climbing partner Jason Wells died in the accident. Tim and Jason were expert climbers, and the details still aren’t fully known, but it appears it was a freak accident. They will both be greatly missed by many people, including me. In the early days of our podcast recordings, Barrett and I recorded this episode of me recounting a hike I went on with Tim to a place in the San Gabriel Mountains called The Bridge to Nowhere. This hike was quite the adventure and has given me a lot to ponder over the years since the hike. This episode was recorded before Tim’s death in our makeshift studio in Barrett’s house. Although Barrett and I were kind of practicing with this podcast episode at his house (you might notice the dog running around in the background playing with his squeaky toy), I thought it was fitting that we release the recording in memory of Tim Klein. Tim left behind a wife and 2 sons. Tim was an outstanding human being. He was a well respected and beloved teacher, a good friend to many and just an all around good dude. If you would like to make a donation to his family’s Gofundme account, please go to https://www.gofundme.com/hzrktb-klein-family. This week on Transmission Accomplished, “The Bridge to Nowhere.”

The Hold Down
Episode 2; The Two Wave Hold Down In big wave surfing there is a rite of passage called “the two wave hold down.” The two wave hold down is when a big wave surfer wipes out and is held under water for the duration of two giant waves. Being held down for one wave is difficult enough, but for big wave surfers who endure being held under for two waves, it becomes a rite of passage to becoming a true surfer able to ride the most amazing and powerful waves on earth. In this episode of Cuff and the Collar, Barrett and Jon discuss the two wave hold down as a metaphor for enduring the challenges of life. Barrett and Jon are by no means big wave surfers (though they enjoy surfing on occasion), but they both know what it is like to get in over your head and be held down for what seems like an eternity. Rather than see life’s overwhelming challenges as unfortunate, unnecessary or bad luck, Barrett and Jon talk about what it means to experience difficult times as a rite of passage and how enduring two wave hold downs of our own can led to a more meaningful and richer experience of life.

Balance Of Opposites
Two friends from two different walks of life fire up the podcast microphones every other week for hard hitting discussions on faith from two very different perspectives. Barrett lived on the other side of the law for a time, in and out of jail before he had a wake up call and turned his life around. Around the time Barrett was in jail, Jon was studying religion and theology at a Christian seminary and graduate school. They met on a soccer field one afternoon when their sons were on the same team. They struck up a friendship and found that while they tend to look at things from different perspectives, they benefit from hashing things out together. Episode 1: “Balance of Opposites” Why we started this podcast. Why a podcast? Both of us have similar Christian roots. One of us went on to a life of crime, the other went on to Christian seminary. What Barrett learned in prison and recovery What Jon learned in seminary and church leadership Where we were at in life when we met each other. Why we think our podcasts and conversations will be helpful is because there is a big need in today’s culture for people with different perspectives, backgrounds, views, opinions, values, can come together in conversation to help each other grow and develop in our understanding of life and how to live more significant and meaningful lives. This is what you are going to be hearing, this is the direction we will be going. This is what you can expect.
