Patchwork is a show that brings together various voices and perspectives on the topics of spirituality, social justice, and culture to help you expand your mind and tap into a richer, fuller life.

To start, let me introduce myself. I’m Brandan, and for as long as I can remember, I’ve had a passion for bringing diverse people and perspectives together. My journey began as a teenager who joined a fundamentalist Baptist church and at the same time began wrestling with my own queer sexuality. That tension of two important aspects of who I am- my faith and my sexuality- led me down a path of curiosity and questioning in just about every aspect of my life.

Today, I am an author, a pastor, and a consultant to faith-communities, governments, and organizations about how we can build bridges and understand those who experience the world differently than we do. And this podcast is an extension of this passion and work.

Every episode, we’ll dive deep into a new topic which an expert in the field and see if we all can get a better understanding. You might agree with what’s said. You might disagree. Whatever the case, I invite you to lean in and listen deeply, because I assure you that you will find something worth grabbing on to in every conversation that will enrich your journey.
