Scott Kent Jones

Someone once observed that if Howard Stern and Krista Tippett had a love child, it would be Scott Jones. Scott liked that.

Past interviewees include Mark Oppenheimer, Melissa Febos, David French, Miroslav Volf, Dan Savage, Nadia Bolz-Weber, Rob Bell, and (yes) Krista Tippett.

Scott is the former host and producer of the popular Mockingcast podcast and an in-demand consultant on all things “pod.”  He is also a prolific writer, a frequent conference speaker, a PhD candidate in Theology, and an ordained minister.

A New Jersey native, Scott lives with his best friend and wife, Lindy, in the suburbs of Philadelphia with two rescue pit bulls that he swears are sensitive souls.

New Persuasive Words started as two guys talking about life with what we thought (hoped?) was wit and wisdom, on our good days anyway. Then…a podcast.

Duotone Give & Take Blue Yellow

Weirdly, there aren’t that many radio shows or podcasts that just offer lengthy, good conversation—the kind of talk we just all need more of—presided over by a smart, generous, self-deprecating host. Like “Fresh Air” or “On Being” or “Love + Radio.” To that list add “Give and Take,” with Scott Jones, whom some of you know from “Mockingcast.” This is the episode he just did with me, but you can also check out the Molly Worthen ep or the Kayla Rae Whitaker or, well, any of them. It’s your next podcast.

I’d never heard of the podcast when I did this interview, but it was one of the best conversations I’ve ever had with a stranger. Scott Jones and I talked about vulnerability, God, shame, mercy, and Carl Jung. Basically, I wanted to keep having it forever. Seriously, you should all subscribe to this podcast.
