004: Entering the Dark Cloud with Joel Jensen-Heath

004: Entering the Dark Cloud with Joel Jensen-Heath

I catch up with my good friend Joel Jensen-Heath. He’s an illustrator and musician from the Bay. You may have seen his work for Safety Propaganda or Deep Roots Radio. He and I also collaborated on the Pyr Zine.

As with a most of our phone calls we cover a lot of ground from the progressive push to a post-human goo, misconceptions of Good vs Evil, toxic Wholesome Culture in the church, and how he found God.

As always, this is a casual conversation in which we'll most likely misstate things or get some things wrong. Whenever anyone talks about GOD, always be like the Bereans and DYOR.
