In this season of our Love Anyway podcast, we hear from people around the world who push us to see our neighbors—and ourselves—in new ways.
From peacemakers in Atlanta to friends receiving emergency food in Venezuela, the real voices on these episodes allow us to experience new ideas and perspectives, all without leaving our homes.
Here’s a round-up of Season 4. (Feel free to listen to these short episodes out of order!)
Episode 1: On the Road With Preemptive Love Come behind the scenes with us! Hear never-before-heard conversations from the Love Anyway film, immersive clips from the Love Anyway fall tour (including live music!), and raw audio from our friends choosing to love anyway across the US.
Episode 2: Why Violence Is a Virus (We Can Stop the Spread) What if the very skills we’re all learning to stop the spread of coronavirus could help us stop the spread of violence?
Episode 3: Off Book: Writing About War, Forgiveness, and The More Beautiful World Preemptive Love founder Jeremy Courtney has seen the very worst of war. The most powerful thing he’s learned after a decade in Iraq? We’re not just at war with each other. We’re at war with ourselves.
Episode 4: It Starts With a Meal: Healing All That’s Tearing Us Apart Remember when we used to eat together? In this episode, travel everywhere from Atlanta to Iraq for a look at what it’s like to gather around the table with strangers.
Episode 5: When We Gather Again, Who Will We Be? We’re looking ahead. Because when all of this is over, we’re going to run hard toward gathering. We hear from Vjolca Capri, who gives her experience of attending a Love Anyway Gathering. As a hijab-wearing Muslim woman, she wasn’t sure what to expect when she attended one. What she experienced surprised her.
Episode 6: Unexpected Empathy: Finding Ourselves in Our Global Neighbors In this season finale, host Erin Wilson sits down with Jessica Courtney, Preemptive Love’s vice president of international programs, for an honest look at what they’ve learned about themselves as they’ve cared for others.
Bonus: Stay Home for Us COVID-19 anywhere is a threat to everyone, everywhere. In this special bonus episode, Preemptive Love team members call in from around the world to share why they are staying home—and exactly who you are helping when you do the same.
Bonus: After Ahmaud Arbery’s Killing, Will We Change? Ahmaud Arbery’s life is more than a hashtag. In this special episode, we hear from Toni, Preemptive Love’s director of gathering, and her husband Sam Collier. Inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, the Colliers act as candid guides helping us confront the violence in our own hearts.
