Your Hosts

Ever wonder what happens when a trans Jewish theological activist and a cisgender Baptist hunger activist walk into a Bible Bashing podcast and talk about Biblical stories? Listen in each month as host, Liam Michael Hooper – a justice-seeking gender theorist, trans educator-advocate, and author – meets with (new) co-host, Don Durham – a hermit like mendicant farmer, podcaster, and strategy coach – share their thoughts about Biblical stories. After discussing a given text, Liam or Don will share a non-Biblical text for us to hold in reflection.

Liam Hooper is a justice-seeking gender theorist, theological activist, trans educator-advocate and consultant living in North Carolina. He is the author of Trans-Forming Proclamation: A Transgender Theology of Daring Existence and a contributor to three trans anthologies. Liam is also the director of Ministries Beyond Welcome, an interfaith collaborative-collective of trans clergy and lay leaders rabble-rousing for change locally, regionally, and nationally.

Don Durham laughingly describes himself as a peace and justice loving, hermit-like mendicant farmer and cantankerous curmudgeon. He runs a small farm where he grows food to give away and hosts a podcast about what other people are doing to end hunger. Each interview lifts up a creative, determined example of someone who has answered the question, “What can I do more of, more often to help end hunger? Don is a trained organizational change consultant and strategy coach. He helps clients be who they want to be and accomplish what they want to accomplish. Don lives in North Carolina.
