“For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.”

– Nelson Mandela



Hosted by Robin Mitchell Stroud, PhD and Debra Levy Martinelli, MA

What happens when a person’s coming of age and coming of conscience develop within the context of religious and spiritual abuse and neglect? How do they learn to break free from fear and shame to claim spiritual independence and a more authentic spiritual life? The Incarcerated Christian Podcast shines a light on the dark side of religious experiences through biweekly discussions with survivors and experts in theology, psychology, and spirituality. Whether you’re in the process of deconstructing religious beliefs, are curious about Christianity’s hold on American politics, thought this was a podcast for Christians in literal lock up, or it just sounded interesting, welcome! New podcasts post on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month.
