Saved by the city podcast
Roxy and Katelyn grew up immersed in white evangelical America. When they moved to New York City as adults, they were warned about the secular dangers of ‘the big city’ life. This podcast captures what happens when purity culture meets hookup culture; when distraction steals from devotion; when the diversity of viewpoints and lifestyles clash against pre-existing assumptions. Gotham can be a weird place for single Christian women. But they’re out there … and they have stories to tell.
Beliefs was a news podcast covering religion, faith, and ethics. It was developed in partnership with Religion News Service (RNS) and Fordham University.
Dr. William Baker of the Bernard L. Schwartz Center for Media, Public Policy, and Education at Fordham University hosted each episode, diving into the top religion stories of the week with a featured guest. Together, Dr. Baker and his guest explored topical issues and fundamental questions that arise from today’s religion landscape. This podcast sought to build a forum for the balancing of ideas that the faithful and the agnostic alike can trust.
