Amazing Podcast

I absolutely love this podcast!! I was introduced to it when I heard Aaron Weiss of my favorite band ,mewithoutyou, was interviewed. I find the questions extremely thought out. I love the Dustin gives people a chance to talk and seems genuinely interested in finding “the good, the true, the beautiful “ in every story. I’ve learned a ton about people from walks of life I wouldn’t have know before. My favorite so far was the episode with John Cobb Jr on process theology! I was so hyped after hearing about a new way to view God and his love towards us. Check it out if you haven’t, you won’t regret it!!

Love the Podcast

I have a hard time finding podcast that keep my attention but Dustin does a great job interviewing the guest while keeping an open mind in the discussions. Definitely interesting topics and questions. Can’t wait to listen to more.

Interesting, but A Sad Decline

This podcast has some very interesting interviews and I appreciate Dustin’s openness to interview different cultural worldviews and backgrounds.But here’s a challenge I’d like to see for him...If he’s genuinely open-minded and tolerant to interviewing all sorts of worldviews, I’d like to see Dustin interview an honest and intelligent evangelical Christian without placing his personal theological bias (Gasp! The horror!) He had a tragic experience in evangelicalism-but this does not mean he should take the baby out with the bath water and throw it out the window. As a reformed evangelical who studied Sociology and Philosophy at a secular college and now has been working in mental health and addiction services for over 3 years- Dustin is missing the mark. He makes it embarrassingly obvious on his personal social media and the like that some kind of suffering happened in his life that made him conflate evangelicalism as bigoted, unintelligent, and the Christian Bible simply subjective and up for debate. Nothing could be farther from the truth- as there’s a slew of intelligent scholarship for hundreds of years that have not come to the conclusions he’s come to with Christianity. I hope he’ll take up the challenge to maybe interview minds like Nancy Pearcey, John Frame, Thomas J. Terry of Humble Beast Records, Rosaria Butterfield, Daniel Wallace, J. Warner Wallace, Greg Koukl, J.P. Moreland, John Piper, Stephen C. Meyer, John Lennox, Gary Habermas, and many more that haven’t come to his conclusions.Id like to see him come out of the ivory tower of SJW philosophies that’s safe to him- which mainstream culture touts already, so these interviews aren’t anything new, and do something different. If he’s truly open-minded to that challenge, I’ll commend him for sure.

Everything I could want from a Kendrick project

Thoughtful, diverse, non-didactic insights on the good, the true, and the beautiful. I’ve been walking a similar path in my life, albeit much less showbiz, and I value the insights Dustin and his guests bring to the table every week. More, please!

“The good , the true and the beautiful “

Or so Dustin says. I’ve been a thrice fan for a few years now so I was stoked to find out about Dustin’s podcast . I knew this would be a show that would dive into the myriad complexities of life and the human condition. You’re pretty much guaranteed to learn something new from each episode, Check it out

Wish I found sooner!

Thrice, and very specifically Dustin Kensrue, changes my life when I was in 9th grade listening to The Illusion Of Safety, which became sort of a “bar” that I compared everything else to philosophically, musically and emotionally. What I found in Dustin’s lyrics then is what I am finding in this podcast now; such a strong sense of connectedness while simultaneously questioning everything and developing my own beliefs whilst allowing my own flaws. It has been such an overwhelmingly positive experience listening to this podcast and I am so thankful to have finally learned of its existence. Thank you Dustin and all guests that challenge me to grow as an individually on a daily basis!

To Maintain a Sense of Wonder

I listen to this podcast every week while preparing dinner. There's so much to learn from Dustin and each of his guests. I love the premise of asking deep questions through the lense of the good, the true, and the beautiful. Dustin is a wonderful host and I've really appreciated the diversity of his guests so far. I'll continue listening to this podcast as I trust it will maintain this consistently high quality level!

Rad waterslide to a pool full of nuance, compassion, love, wonder, joy & free tacos

It’s hard to believe that I’ve been listening to Dustin’s music and following his work for almost 20 years. Through the formative high school and college years, at my wedding, and in the operating room during the births of both of my sons, it would be difficult to overstate the presence and subtle impact that his writing has had on my family’s life over those years. I only started following Dustin on Twitter a few years ago, and through his writing and sharing there, I found language, resources, and a community for what I now understand as the deconstruction and ongoing reconstruction of my understanding of self, God, love for others, the nature of the universe, and many of the systems in which we live and operate. Those early introductions to RHE, the Liturgists, and modern mystics like Rohr, were such desperately needed grace and freedom for me at that time, and are very much what Dustin once called the “rad waterslide to a pool full of nuance, compassion, love, wonder, joy & free tacos”. To me, this podcast, and Thrice’s latest record, Palms, are the culmination (and continuation) of a very long journey, and it’s been beyond what I had hoped it would be.On the podcast, Dustin and his guests explore life’s big questions through the lens of the good, the true, and the beautiful. Dustin has managed to pull together an all-star lineup of guests with diverse backgrounds and beliefs that have lead to some fantastic conversations about the really important stuff. Some episodes are a bit headier than others, but I feel like he’s found a good balance here. I mentioned the diverse views of his guests, but I feel like he’s been really intentional about this and it’s much appreciated. While there are some familiar and beloved guests from deconstruction/reconstruction Twitter, I’ve really enjoyed the conversation and insights from Qasim, Brian, Dr. Carse, and musicians like Gerard and Sameer. One last podcast related note, producer Andy Lara has done a fantastic job with this and his experience here has really helped Carry the Fire get off to a strong start. It’s been fun to listen to the little tweaks and optimizations happening in each episode and I really feel like this project is coming together beautifully. Tl;dr, this is it chief. Give it a listen, and if you want more of this in the world, go check out CTF’s Patreon and support if you can.

Great Dive Into Humanity

The thing I love the most about this podcast is that you get the chance to listen to different approaches of viewing humanity. While talking from different points of view, it actually does a great job of linking us all together and pointing out the things that make us all human.

Amazing discussions

I have followed Dustin Kensrue for going on 15 years now. He has always been one of my favorite songwriters, and his podcast is no different. He offers a variety of viewpoints, open discussion, and great questions. If you love to have your knowledge expanded, you will love this podcast.
