An Interview with Joe Callahan
An Interview with Bulaong Ramiz-Hall
“I don’t see the world in a binary way. It’s not good versus evil. That is too simple. And maybe books taught me that too. That there are so many variances to how we see and view the world around us and its never so simple as that. And trying to make it so simple really does a disservice to the subtleties of the world which is what makes us special. You know, which is what makes humans fantastic creatures with the capacity to think and to feel and to express those subtleties in very different and exciting ways." - Joe Callahan
Some basics about the interviews
Unapologetic blackness, radical joy, resisting culturally enforced invisibility, these are urgent in Bulaong. A None & Some interview.
An Interview with Scott Rebmann
Basically, they are people I know, kind of know or have just met. I mention the None & Some Project and they are curious. When I ask, might you be up for being interviewed, they have said "sure".
There's a slight weightedness toward interviewing "younger" folks - 35ish and younger. As I am particularly curious about how we are remaking the landscape of what used to belong more clearly within the bounds of "religion".
An Interview with Philip Maurer
"Death is the great equalizer" - Scott
An Interview with Peter Lane
“the liturgy as a form of a worship service, and also the liturgical year, they mean so much to me. And I feel like these are things that can hold people together who have vastly different understandings of a lot of things and that that’s a good thing.” - Philip
An Interview with Melissa Duarte
Spirituality, sexuality, music and love after the election
An Interview with Sujata Gidumal
“I think that it’s important to have a connection with something higher and bigger than yourself. Because even though I question it sometimes I think it does ground me." - Melissa
An Interview with Bryan Nurnberger
..."that's what I think of as spirituality: meditation and reflecting on your actions and trying to pause throughout the day and being present” - Suji
An Interview with Meera Krishna
“If people don’t have a viable path in front of them, that really...it’s infuriating to me…that is such a driver for me” - Bryan
"...that I am not unique in my experience of pain and joy and suffering brings me a lot of comfort." - Meera
