Episode 17: A Queer Catholic Experience with Zinzy Nev Geene

Zinzy Nev Geene is a Dutch queer Catholic activist and facilitator. She lives in Amsterdam where she has a day job as a digital designer and, on the side, she fosters safe places for queer people to “just be.” She calls it being a queer facilitator.  She is on the board of the emerging organization Vine and Fig co, a online space for queer Catholics to find support along their spiritual journeys. 

We talk about what ‘queer’ means. We talk about a lot of Catholic stuff, including novenas and uncomfortable pews. You don’t want to miss what she observes about Christianity on Pinterest and the authentic reality of Christianity in our lived human experiences. 

* trigger warning: there is some talk in this episode about violence done to queer people in the world. 

Episode 28: Episode 28: Raising Kids for a Just World with Lydia Wylie-Kellermann On a Mission

Today I’m talking with Lydia Wylie-Kellermann. She’s an author and activist I’ve admired for a long time, and I’m so happy to share her with you. Her latest book, The Sandbox Revolution, is a collection of essays from parent-activists around the U.S. It offers advice for raising children committed to social justice in the world today. Lydia offers beautiful forwards to each section of the book. When she’s not writing books, Lydia is the editor of Geez magazine, a paper-only publication that comes to your door four times a year with inspiration for living life more simply and justly. She also curates and edits the blog Radical Discipleship. You’ll love her spirituality of resistance. Listen in to our conversation about the value of print magazines, the challenge and blessing of raising kids in 2021, and how to manage when your kids *don’t* want to engage in activism…. enjoy!Links we chatted about in the episode:Radical DiscipleshipThe Sandbox Revolution: Raising Kids for a Just WorldGeez magazineJoanna Macy, Buddhist scholarJennifer Harvey’s Raising White KidsSupport the podcast: https://www.buymeacoffee.com/molleen
