How to Subscribe
You can access MennoNerds media content through many different services. They come down to two feeds we offer:
- YouTube video
- Podcast audio
The audio podcast feeds are available through many different podcast stores including iTunes, Google Play, and Stitcher. Some of these links are shown below. You can also copy the RSS feed link available in the sidebar into podcatchers that allow that functionality to directly subscribe.
Release Schedule and the Shows
We try to release something on the podcast feed and YouTube every Tuesday at 3:00pm Eastern. That doesn’t always happen and sometimes we end up with a few weeks in a row with nothing, but we try. The basic structure is alternating weeks between the Black Gal, White Guy show and interviews/panels.
Ebony Adedayo and Steve Kimes host the Black Gal, White Guy show. There, they discuss questions of theology and social justice. They also recommend resources for those who want to learn more about the topic and take questions from their audience.
Katelin Hansen and Paul Walker host interviews (covering a topic with 1 or more guests) and the occasional panel (several MennoNerds members discussing a topic together). Our guests are whoever we can get that has interesting things to say and who fits our MennoNerds mission statement. If you or somebody you know are interested in being a guest, please send our podcast coordinator a message using the contact form specifying the contact reason to be podcasts.
We used to have a conversational vlog structure where many participants provided short videos on a topic. This has been replaced in the rotation by the BGWG show, but you can still find all the old ones on our YouTube page or here on the site.
Finally, on rare occasion, there may be a recording of a special event such as one of our members speaking somewhere who agreed to share through MennoNerds. These will typically take over one of the interview/panel slots in the rotation.
Most of our interview/panel podcasts are done through YouTube Live and visible publicly. You can watch there, and sometimes we are able to take questions from the audience for our guest (not always, depending on availability of volunteers to monitor the chat and/or Twitter).
The live broadcasts do not follow any particular schedule. It is entirely dependent on when the host and guest(s) are available.
Why Ads on YouTube
We include ads on YouTube because it costs money to maintain all that we do, and we get very few donations. If we suddenly starting a lot more donations to cover our costs and allow us some room for improvements, we would be happy to get rid of the ads.
