The Shot Put: Theology + Psychology Podcast | with Brian Kay

The Shot Put podcast travels in the fascinating and sometimes dangerous border country between theology and psychology, between contemporary psychotherapy and much older forms of soul care. If you’re a provider or a consumer of any form of curative talk (we’re looking at you psychotherapists, pastors, and counselors of every type), and you suspect that both Scripture and neurobiology might have something to teach you about how human beings tick, then this show is for you. Your host is Brian Kay (PhD theology/MA psychology).
