Talking Transcendence By Way of Playing with Fire: Recommended Listening

Okay, I was planning to write about something completely separate, but due to time restraints on my end, I’m instead going to provide this latest round of Recommended Analyzing (and the first one since the beginning of the year):

So I am a fan of Kimbra; a New Zealand singer-songwriter known for her sonically engaging sound. While her fourth album, “A Reckoning,” is scheduled for release early next year, as of today, she now has a new podcast out. It’s called Playing with Fire and it’s about transcendence and how it manifests in people’s lives — particularly the lives of creatives. The first three episodes came out yesterday, featuring conversations with fellow artist Mitski, memoirist Jedidiah Jenkins, and actor Bethany Joy Lenz.

The central topic of all these conversations — transcendence — may sound daunting, particularly those who may not consider themselves mystical or a believer by any means. However, please don’t let that spook you from these really enlightening conversations. Some touch on the role of God in their lives, while others don’t necessarily know who or what is out there, but they appreciate the presence anyway and what it does for their souls. Go into this with an open mind, and who knows what you might gain from it. Hopefully a thought or two if anything.

You can check out Playing with Fire here or wherever else you listen to podcasts.

If you are able to, I hope you can go support me in all that I do by leaving a tip over on Ko-fi. I do a lot of writing that I get paid very little for or not at all, and so this is a way of showing your support other than just reading my content. Donations of varying quantities and frequencies are greatly appreciated.
