A Conversation with Reverend Richard Coles

Episode Summary

We are thrilled to be launching Season 3 with a very special guest. Reverend Richard Coles is a Church of England priest, broadcaster, writer, and former popstar.

Episode Notes

Tune in for a wide-ranging conversation with Reverend Coles about his extraordinary life and variety of careers, his lifelong love of music of all kinds from Motown to Benjamin Britten, the experience of being an 'accidental popstar', life as a gay man and political activist in the 1980s, how Christian faith can manifest in music and in physical spaces, the great 'community' of both activism and the Church, and the life-changing effects of the recent lockdown. Plus, what our contributors (and dogs) have been listening to lately.
