Ep 573 – The Enneagram with Carole Whittaker, P1

Today Glenn sits down with Carole Whittaker, a teacher on the Enneagram (which is a fascinating tool for personality typing).  Carole experienced a crisis of faith from her Catholic upbringing while she earned a PhD in Chemistry and began seeing that life outside her cultural faith bubble was different that what she had previously believed.  After some great personal challenges, Carole experienced a spiritual reawakening, and the Enneagram played an important role.   Part one of this conversation explores Carole’s background and story of faith crisis.  Part two goes into more depth on the Enneagram and the neurological habits we develop that color the different ways we view and experience the world.  It is a fascinating two-part series.  Enjoy.

Ep 572: God over Good with Luke Norsworthy

What if you dedicated your life to a certain direction.  You put all your eggs in one basket,  and then came to the stark realization that not only is the basket not really a basket, but maybe your eggs aren’t even really eggs?

Sound familiar at all?

Luke Norsworthy is a Christian Pastor who experienced a faith crisis when he saw that the Bible and his expectations of God didn’t really stack up against reality.  Luke recently wrote about his faith crisis in the book God over Good.  Luke also runs a weekly podcast called Newsworthy with Norsworthy and is a 7 on the Enneagram.  Just like me.   Enjoy!

Ep 571 – From LDS to LSD: Consciousness, Psychedelics, and the Meaning of Life with Micah Nickolaisen

Glenn continues his informal probings into the informal questions raised in this informal series on the meaning of life.  This time with Micah Nickolaisen.  Enjoy.

Ep 570 – Bill Reel, Dogma, and Slippery Pete in the Quest for Well-Being

What is “well being?” What (if anything) does that have to do with a belief in God? Why is Jordan Peterson so dang slippery for Tom? Glenn and Tom sit down with Bill Reel and a few other guests to discuss the main issues raised by Sam Harris and Jordan Peterson in their Aug 2018 Vancouver discussion on Dogma:

Ep 569 – The Man Behind the Curtain

What do you do when you discover the man behind the curtain? Do you walk away and trash it all because of the deception? Or do you keep pulling those levers and put on a really great show in the name of something better? Today’s guest is Anthony D Miller, who talks about his faith crisis, his inner voice, the trouble with differentiation, his commitment to serving those around him, and a bunch of other great stuff. Enjoy.

Ep 568 – Making Space for Me in a Hostile World, P2

Ep 567 – Making Space for Me in a Hostile World, P1

How can you hold on to those things that are most important while discarding the things that harm you? Today Glenn sits down with long time friend Tami Whiting to discuss her INCREDIBLE book “Making Space for Me.” Tami lived a very rough life, found community in unexpected places, and then eventually had to walk away. That description does not do her story justice. You just have to hear it to believe it.

Ep 566 – The Truth of Lies and Consciousness and Hallucinating Reality

Today Glenn is joined by Brady, Tom, and a small gaggle of live virtual audience members to discuss the intersection between Plato’s idea of “The Lie of the Soul,” Anil Seth’s TED Talk on the way our brains hallucinate reality, and video blogger Matt Christiansen’s response to the recent outrage in Washington DC over a confrontation between native American protestors and Catholic high school kids. It’s a big one! Enjoy.

Ep 565 – Letter from Birmingham Jail

What is the difference between justice and injustice? What is the difference between actively disrupting the status quo and passively maintaining peace and order? In commemoration of Martin Luther King Jr Day, Glenn shares with you his thoughts on the powerful and impactful messages in the Letter from Birmingham Jail; how it has influenced key times in his life, and the potential influence it has for today.

Ep 564 – The Meaning of Life: Brady Bluhm, P2

In part two, Brady explains how he rediscovered and redefined “God.” Is suffering really the best teacher? What is the difference between Lying and Lies?
This 2-part interview with Brady is the 2nd installment of IOT’s ongoing “Meaning of Life” series. Enjoy!
