I know most of our listeners don’t have kids, but this episode was too good not to share!
Name 10 ways to destroy your child’s imagination. Ok, we’ll give you 5 to start: 1. Mechanize your kid, 2. pad their resume, 3. send them to Yale, 4. stifle their natural talents and, if you do nothing else, 5. deter any natural tendency to admire God’s vast creation. This is but a taste of the (outlandish?) commentary to expect from Dr. Anthony Esolen, professor of English at Providence College and author of Ten Ways to Destroy the Imagination of Your Child. To those of us glued to our screens or whose suffocated imaginations are inhibited by too many distractions, Dr. Esolen is a breath of fresh air.
Cultural commentary from a Biblical perspective, including some interesting new developments on the clash between transgenderism and religion.
A great sermon on the Spirit from Woodland Hills Church! Everyone should subscribe to their podcast.
Why are some people more successful than others? It’s a tough question to answer because it relies on a number of factors, many which are out of our control — like genetics and plain old luck. But there are a few factors that we have a say in — one of those being the ability to persevere even in the face of setbacks. Otherwise known as grit.
My guest today, Professor Angela Duckworth, has spent her career researching this trait, and in today’s show we discuss her new book, Grit, and the ways we can increase this trait in our ives.

At the Intersection of Sex and the School: A Conversation about Sex Education with Professor Jonathan Zimmerman
Al Mohler’s podcast - Thinking in Public - Near the end of the interview, there is a fascinating piece in this episode about Mohler’s take on why extended adolescence exists at all. Brilliant, just brilliant.
During World War II the Greek island of Crete was occupied by the Nazis and was a strategic stronghold. To take back the island, Great Britain created a small band of misfit resistance fighters consisting of poets, historians, and Cretan shepherds. Their job was to muck things up for the Nazis, but one day they decided to do something completely audacious: kidnap a German general and get him off the island.
Against all the odds, they accomplished their mission.
How’d they do it?
My guest today on the podcast went to Crete to follow in the footsteps of these WWII resistance fighters and along the way discovered that they had tapped into the ancient Greek art of the hero. His name is Christopher McDougall and in his book Natural Born Heroes, he takes readers on a whirlwind tour through history, psychology, and fitness to show how these clever, courageous Englishmen emulated Odysseys and other Greek heroes and what regular Joes can do to live more heroically. In today’s episode, Chris and I discuss the mindset, the virtues, and the skills needed to become an ancient Greek hero.
I love this sermon by J. D. Greear on Leah and Rachel.
