Ever wonder what happens when a trans Jewish theological activist and a cisgender Baptist hunger activist walk into a Bible Bashing podcast and talk about Biblical stories? Listen in each month as host, Liam Michael Hooper - a justice-seeking gender theorist, trans educator-advocate, and author - meets with (new) co-host, Don Durham - a hermit-ish farmer, podcaster, and transitional coach - share their thoughts about Biblical stories. After discussing a given text, Liam or Don will share a non-Biblical text for us to hold in reflection. Don Durham laughingly describes himself as a peace and justice loving, hermit-like mendicant farmer and cantankerous curmudgeon. As a person working with the land to address hunger, he runs a small farm where he grows food to give away and hosts a podcast about what other people are creatively doing to end hunger. Don is a trained organizational change and transition consultant and strategic coach helping clients be who they want to be and accomplish what they want to accomplish. Don lives in North Carolina. Liam Hooper is a justice-seeking gender theorist, theological activist, trans educator-advocate and consultant living in North Carolina. He is the author of Trans-Forming Proclamation: A Transgender Theology of Daring Existence and a contributor to three trans anthologies. Liam is also the director of Ministries Beyond Welcome, an interfaith collaborative-collective of trans clergy and lay leaders rabble-rousing for change locally, regionally, and nationally.

In each episode of Bible Bash Podcast, Peterson, cisgender gay Bible scholar and co-host, Liam Michael Hooper, a trans Bible scholar, take turns presenting the text. They then discuss.
