• Ep 18: "Whatever happened to New Atheism?" with Justin Brierley (Season Finale)

    23 NOV. 2023 · Episode 18: “Whatever happened to New Atheism?" (Season Finale) Around the mid 2000s atheism became sexy. It was everywhere. Headlined by Richard Dawkins and the other ‘four horsemen’ of New Atheism; Christopher Hitchens, Sam Harris and Daniel Dennett. They -and many other public atheists- were dominating best seller lists, YouTube algorithms and making news with their witty and swashbuckling commentary. But it seems like those days have moved on pretty quick. We only really hear about Richard Dawkins now when he’s being cancelled, and atheism hasn’t really risen at all when you look at the numbers. So what happened to New Atheism, and what could be taking its place? Well, for our final episode of season 1, we’re delighted to have Justin Brierley joining us from the UK. Thanks to his popular https://www.premierunbelievable.com/ which brought (and still brings) prominent Christians and sceptics together for dialogue, he was able to have a ringside seat to many of the proponents and arguments of New Atheism. His new book ‘https://justinbrierley.com/the-surprising-rebirth-of-belief-in-god/ covers the downfall of the movement along with the cultural shift that seems to be happening. You can also https://justinbrierley.com/surprisingrebirth/, you won't regret it.

  • Ep 16: "What does healthy masculinity look like?" with Al Stewart

    12 OCT. 2023 · Episode 16: "What does healthy masculinity look like?" with Al Stewart The last 50-60 years have brought unprecedented change when it comes to understanding, and re-writing our understanding, of gender roles in society. Today’s episode is not so much going to look at all the aspects of gender we could cover, but we want to zero in on manhood and masculinity. Being a man has always brought a range of advantages and power dynamics that we’re coming to understand more and more, but there also challenges that we’d do well to try and dig into as well. Today we have Al Stewart who has recently written a book on masculinity, called https://www.amazon.com.au/Manual-Getting-Masculinity-Right/dp/1925424715/ref=asc_df_1925424715/?tag=googleshopdsk-22&linkCode=df0&hvadid=632418657720&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=10664071573069521823&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9072335&hvtargid=pla-1833943346140&psc=1. I’m privileged to call him a friend and someone that I’ve admired and worked alongside over my time with Third Space and City Bible Forum. He’s currently the director of the https://fiec.org.au, and has extensive experience in Christian ministry. We don’t tend to get pastors on this show much, but he’s learnt a lot about blokes over the last few decades, and has plenty of great insights.

  • Ep 15: "Can trees save the world?" with Tony Rinaudo

    5 OCT. 2023 · Episode 15: "Can trees save the world?" When people think of climate change I imagine they think of the smog and smoke pouring into the atmosphere as we burn fossil fuels to power our cities, cars, and lifestyles. And you would be right. But perhaps an understated accelerant is the loss of vast forest ecosystems which are often destroyed for agriculture, housing development, and the forestry industry. Not only are trees a vital source of oxygen that ensures we can breathe the breath of life, but they are also one of our most powerful defences against climate change. The original carbon capture technology immaculately designed by the first agronomist. Speaking of agronomists, today we have Tony Rinaudo joining us. Also known as 'The Forestmaker'. Tony works for https://www.worldvision.org/ and has been a force in the climate change story. He worked in Niger for a couple of decades helping farmers with work with nature to restore native forest land, and to grow enough food to support their local communities. His focus has been in Africa, but his work is going global, thanks to a strategy called ‘Farmer Managed Natural Regeneration’ which well get to. In 2018 he won the https://rightlivelihood.org/ (Alternate Nobel Prize) "for demonstrating on a large scale how drylands can be greened at minimal cost, improving the livelihoods of millions of people".

    21 SEP. 2023 · Episode 13: "What's your favourite drink (and why is it single malt whisky)?" Sometimes on Deeper Questions there’ll be niche, and then there’ll be next level niche like today. Digging into a topic that is ridiculously particular and concentrated where you might come in knowing absolutely nothing of what we’re talking about. Well if that’s you today then don’t worry! I think we manage to handle it in a way that caters to people with no prior knowledge, people that associate whisky with ‘that unnatural burning sensation in my throat and chest’ - as well as some juicy bits for those who have a decent top shelf when it comes to whisky. Today we have Jane Overeem, the co-owner of https://overeemwhisky.com/, as well as Bec Polmear, the co-founder at https://waubsharbourwhisky.com/. Both distilleries have been recognised on the world stage with Overeem taking home awards from the World Whiskies awards in 2019, and a gold medal in 2023 for their Port Cask. Waubs Harbour are new to the scene and have been recognised almost immediately, winning a master medal and two gold medals at the World Whisky masters 2023.

  • Ep 12: "How can we help save a life?" with Mitch McPherson

    13 SEP. 2023 · Episode 12: “How can we help save a life?" Suicide is one of those taboo topics that we push as far out of minds we possibly can. And for good reason. It’s utterly tragic when someone takes their own life. When their circumstances and emotional wellbeing reach such a point that they no longer feel they can go on. Where it feels so bleak, so hopeless, and a permanent escape is the only option. And so today we wanted to bring it front of mind, with a guest who is doing some incredible work in this space to help get us talking. Mitch McPherson who is the founder of https://staychatty.com.au/ – a not-for-profit organisation working in the mental health space, promoting positive mental health and prevent suicide by normalising conversations about mental health and encouraging people to seek help when they need it. Mitch established the organisation in 2013 after his younger brother Ty died by suicide, and has been a champion in the mental health space ever since - sharing that it’s OK to not be OK, that we can find help, and that we can help each other out in tough times.

  • Ep 11: "What’s with our obsession with True Crime?" with Michael Guerzoni

    7 SEP. 2023 · Episode 11: "What’s with our obsession with True Crime?" In early 2023, Triton Digital‘s Australian Podcast Ranker showed that Casefile, an Australian True Crime podcast - had risen to number 1 in Australia, beating Hamish and Andy. Apart from Casefile, there are approximately 120 podcasts about true crime, just from Australian content creators. Since Serial, the popular spinoff from This American Life, in 2014, it seems our appetite for this kind of journalism meets narrative nonfiction is insatiable. What does it tell us about us as people and as a society? Dr Michael A. Guerzoni is a criminologist at the School of Social Sciences in the College of Arts, Law and Education. Michael’s research examines organisational culture, deviance, and crime prevention, with a particular focus on the safeguarding of children within religious institutions. The results of his doctoral thesis was published as a book titled https://www.amazon.com/Child-Protection-Church-Anglican-Routledge-ebook/dp/B0933MKJGM?ref_=ast_author_dp. He’s also the author of a number of scholarly journals and book chapters. Michael has done way too much reading on this subject and brings compassion as well as expertise to this episode.

  • Ep 10: "Are you spiritual but not religious?" with Natasha Moore

    20 JUL. 2023 · Episode 10: “Are you spiritual but not religious?" Every time the census rolls around there is intrigue, vigorous campaigning, non-stop commentary and at times feverish hysteria about the decline of institutional religion. And while Australia continues to become more and more secular, it doesn’t necessarily mean that everyone is becoming less spiritual. For this episode we’ll meander through a bunch of topics, disciplines, authors and ideas that we hope you’ll find as interesting as we did. Natasha Moore is a Senior Research Fellow at https://www.publicchristianity.org/: a not-for-profit media company that offers a Christian perspective on contemporary life. She has a PhD in English Literature from the University of Cambridge and is the author of https://www.amazon.com.au/Love-God-church-better-imagined-ebook/dp/B081D9K1F9 as well as https://www.amazon.com.au/Pleasures-Pessimism-Re-CONSIDERING-ebook/dp/B08DQSFMW8. She spoke recently in Hobart as part of the https://stgeorgesbatterypoint.org/henry-baldwin-lecture/ series, and our conversation interacts with the lecture.

  • Ep 9: "Would Jesus identify as an Evangelical?" with Con Campbell

    13 JUL. 2023 · Episode 9: “Would Jesus identify as an Evangelical?" Evangelicalism seems to have a massive PR problem. You probably see in the news the same thing that I do: high profile scandals, a loud voice in the culture wars, and behaviour that doesn’t line up with the historical Jesus. So I wanted to discuss the perception and the reality of Evangelicalism - both the label and the movement. As well as how it lines up with the central figure of Christianity; Christ, and his teachings. Constantine Campbell is a Professor and Associate Research Director at the Sydney College of Divinity, and previously served as Professor of New Testament studies at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Chicago and Moore Theological College in Sydney. He specialises in ancient Greek language and completed his doctorate at Macquarie University 2007. Con is also the author of 16 books, with a focus on ancient Greek linguistics, New Testament interpretation, and the writings of St Paul. His latest book is https://www.booktopia.com.au/jesus-v-evangelicals-constantine-r-campbell/book/9780310135449.html.

Submerge in wonder, surface with hope.

Deeper Questions is a podcast by Third Space. Opening space for reflection and intelligent conversation about God, culture and ideas.

Every week Aaron/Amy invite you to listen to fascinating guests as we enter their world, ideas and expertise to answer questions that matter.

We'll bring a Christian angle to every episode, but we'll also take the time to listen to sceptics and the place of doubt in a post-Christian world. Regardless of where you stand from a belief or non-belief perspective, we hope you'll take the plunge with us for Deeper Questions.
