We welcomed our first-ever Eastern Orthodox guest for a deep dive
and to explore why the countries where that faith is prominent
are generally faring better, a subject worthy of all of our attention.
This was a different kind of episode of The After Party where we were
learning on air about a subject we know little about, the same as most of the listeners.
I had been a bit of a “method actor” for this one, researching and even practicing
this faith to some degree for six weeks in preparation.
My opening statement provides much detail and parameters
to help the listener glean the most from this episode without jumping to unnecessary conclusions
on what we know is a controversial topic in our spheres.
As we’ve had several folkish/pagan guests on TAP previously,
we wanted to hear more about Eastern Orthodoxy
as a means to present a rich and varied presentation
that could inspire further investigation for those who feel compelled,
and more clarity and understanding for those who have negative associations with Christianity,
particularly through the lens of orthodoxy,
which has important distinctions from Roman Catholicism and Protestantism.
