“I hate to hear you talk about all women as if they were fine ladies instead of rational creatures. None of us want to be in calm waters all our lives.”

—from Jane Austen’s Persuasion

Jane Austen is right (isn’t she always?): Calm waters, while enticing, offer a mere lazy-river sort of existence. Hannah Anderson and I believe women have much of value to say and contribute in the rough waters of this life. Our podcast is the space where we invite both women and men to hear conversation covering current day issues from the female perspective. This is where we process, lament, laugh, and gird our proverbial loins before engaging the world once again.

Our goal with the show is to offer feminine insight on culture, theology, and everyday minutia—without reducing it to a podcast about “women’s issues.” Quite the challenge! (Read Hannah’s take on the show here.)
