Episode 20 – Pastor June Joplin

Hard to Believe #020 – Pastor June Joplin 

Until last summer, June Joplin had been serving as pastor at Lorne Park Baptist Church in Toronto. Then she delivered a sermon that would change her life. In the months since, she has been interviewed by the New York Times, Vox, and the CBC, and her story has been featured in major news outlets far and wide. She spoke to John about what led to her wanting to be a pastor, what led to her coming out, and her hopes for Christianity and herself as she considers what comes next.

You can find more about her at her website, PastorJune.com

#3.10 – Some Personal News! Hard to Believe – A Podcast About Belief

Today, we explore some personal news! Where has John been for the last month? Well, to explain the answer to that question, he decided to engage in his least-favorite mode of podcasting – the solo talk! This episode touches on some of the work he is currently doing researching the history of conspiracism and how it emerged into its current form, and sheds some light on what's ahead for the show (in short – it's not going away, but may well be a little wonky with scheduling…like today!)
