Ravel Podcast is a Christian theology round-table discussion show, hosted by Josh Lieuallen, Stephen Henning, and Emily Rettinghouse. We each grew up in different parts of American Christianity, and we still keep thinking about how to take it seriously, even as we leave some beliefs behind. Join us as we ravel out our faith in a complex world, pulling on one thread at a time, seeking Meaning at the end of it all.
 
A weekly show that brings you ten new tracks from artists from across the world. We cover every genre conceivable, from abstract techno, mutated dancehall, dark metal to Chinese bin lid music or something else - if it's recorded outside of the major label system, we're up for playing it. You'll find music you love, music you don't understand, and music that'll change your life.

If you had access to 39 gigantic bells and wanted to make an exotica record, how would it sound? If you wanted to make an orchestral opus and only had access to synths, how would that sound? Some answers may be enclosed in this week's podcast. As well as experimentation with massive bells, we have more modestly produced music that is no less extrao…
 
The housing market is exploding. Prices are skyrocketing as people are leaving cities in mass. In this episode we start to explore the housing market. How much are prices inflated in Montana?

Are we allowed to read ancient texts with our modern categories of genre? And what informs our education on biblical genres? We wonder out loud at if we might read the Bible through a satirical lens and even suggest some possible edits of books or stories we wish were never part of the Bible to begin with. Follow along in your study bibles and be s…

It's an emotional start to this week's podcast with the final recording of podcast mainstays Tomaga. It is - as with all the music Tom and Valentina made together - absolutely stunning and it's heartbreaking no more is forthcoming.

A fantastic hour of new music this week, although the highlight could well be the sublime cut of Eswatini and South African music from 1989 that's had a reissue on France's Nyami Nyami label. That Azumah track is bookended by two fairly gnarly pieces from Canada's Seum and Australia's Divide and Dissolve, we also have stunning ambient soundscapes f…

We don't do 'best of' episodes at the Independent Music Podcast. Music is subjective and we love to shout about the music we love.

So whether it's 10-minute Finnish rock opuses, racially charged noise-jazz-hiphop, Kenyan field recor…

Experience. Tradition. Scripture. Reason. These are the ingredients to what became known as the Wesleyan Quadrilateral or the Methodist Quadrilateral.

Elsewhere, live podcast regulars will …
 
Emily brings the guys questions and lessons from the liturgical calendar. We discuss the pros and cons of using this tool to establish a rhythm to the year and wonder out loud about ways we could reform it. What if Christmas and Easter were only celebrated every 3 years?

The long-awaited (okay, 12 months) return of Shackleton's Tunes of Negation is a real highlight at the end of this week's show.

Also on the show, we have Gazelle Twin and NYX's exquisitely unsettling cover of…
 
When it comes to the Bible and Christian tradition, Josh wonders if interpreting them through a lens of Originalism is best? Are we hindered by thinking we need to somehow get back there? Where should we place the standard by which we interpret modern life? Could it be that the trajectory from Eden garden paradise to new heavenly city whose gates a…
