Today I review Angela Nagle’s book Kill All Normies: Online Culture Wars From 4Chan and Tumblr to Trump and the Alt-Right. I discuss some of the dynamics of contemporary online culture, especially the way that gender shapes things.
Yesterday, I was invited onto the According to Christ podcast to discuss gender and the struggle to be men and women in the contemporary world. You can listen to the episode here.
I recently delivered a series of talks on the subject of Christian witness concerning male and female, sex, marriage, sexuality, and gender in the current Western world. There are four lectures and two question times. You can listen to them all here.
In this episode of the Theopolis Podcast, Peter Leithart and I are joined by Dr David Field, to discuss his work in the area of psychology and counselling. Dr Field’s work has been vigorously discussed on the Theopolis blog (see this opening post and the responses linked at the top) and elsewhere over the last month.
You can follow the Theopolis podcast on Soundcloud, iTunes, and on most podcast apps. You can read show notes over on the Theopolis podcast website. You can also see past episodes I have contributed to by clicking the ‘Theopolis Podcast’ link in the bar above.
I’ve followed Paul VanderKlay’s YouTube channel for some time. Paul is a minister in the Christian Reformed Church of North America, based in Sacramento. Seeing a profound interest in deep conversations with young men in particular following the rise of Jordan Peterson, he has made such conversations a key dimension of his ministry and now has a large following and extensive engagement with a demographic that so many other ministers are uncertain of how to reach. He recently invited me to have a conversation with him on his channel. We had a long call yesterday and this was the result.
I was invited to speak on the Generations podcast a few weeks ago. They have just posted the episode, in which Kevin Swanson and I discuss issues related to gender dysphoria, intersex, and transgender identities.
