Ask Science Mike
People have questions they aren’t comfortable asking in their faith communities. They can be absurd curiosities or the deeply personal points of pain. What happens when a car turns on it’s headlights while traveling at light speed? Could God make a rock so heavy that God couldn’t lift it? How does cancer happen? What does science tell us about monogamy? How do I tell my family I don’t believe in God anymore? Ask Science Mike is a weekly podcast hosting an open, honest, and safe discussion about science, faith, and life. A global audience of hundreds of thousands show up every week to talk about the strange, confusing, and often taboo topics that show up at the intersection of ancient faith and modern science. This week, we’re doing it live at Wild Goose. What will we talk about? Whatever you ask. Ask Science Mike is a weekly podcast where no question or topic is off limits, where the genuinely curious find a safe space to voice what they’ve been afraid to say aloud. It’s a program run by its listeners–they choose the topics and focus of every episode. It’s science meets sexuality meets faith meets a gospel-come-alive in the liberation of the oppressed. And this year, it’s happening live at the Wild Goose Festival.
