Mortification of Spin

Mortification of Spin is a casual conversation about things that count. Carl Trueman, Todd Pruitt and Aimee Byrd serve up a humorous, informal podcast with bite. Join this engaging and thought-provoking conversation on the challenges the Church faces and what counts in the Christian life. Served up with a healthy dose of germane cultural references. Hear for yourself if British accents carry more weight...



Carl Trueman is a professor of humanities at Grove City College in Pennsylvania.  He was born in Dudley in the United Kingdom and grew up in the idyllic rural surroundings of the West Country. He has previously been a faculty member at the Universities of Nottingham and Aberdeen in the UK and Westminster Theological Seminary (PA)  For the academic year of 2017-18, he was the William E. Simon Visiting Fellow in Religion and Public Life on the James Madison Program at Princeton University. From 2012 to 2018 he was also Pastor of Cornerstone Presbyterian Church (OPC) in Ambler, Pa. In his spare time he runs, listens to rock and classical music, and does what his wife tells him. Carl enjoys reading melancholy poetry, bleak and depressing nineteenth century novels, biographies of Napoleon, and watching hard-boiled crime series. Banned or blacklisted or simply despised by most of the respectable evangelical establishment, he avoids social media such as Twitter and Facebook because his sensitive disposition means that he could not cope with him being blocked there as well. He knows that he coulda had class, he coulda been a contender, he coulda been somebody. Instead he just got a one-way ticket to Palookaville.

Aimee Byrd resides in her hometown in Frederick, MD with her husband, Matt, and three children. She currently has one in college, high school, and middle school. This vocation has improved her crisis management skills, but not so much her chauffeuring ones.

At the beginning of her married life, Aimee co-owned a coffee shop in downtown Frederick, MD called The Mudd Puddle. Aimee has since repented of her coffee snobbery and is willing to drink bad coffee for a friend. She still tries to use her mad barista skills in hospitality at home.

Aimee is the author of Housewife Theologian, Theological Fitness, No Little Women, and Why Can’t We Be Friends. She blogs at www.housewifetheologian.com for the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals. Along with Carl Trueman and Todd Pruitt, Aimee is a co-host of the Alliance podcast The Mortification of Spin.

When Aimee is not running her kids around, cheering them on at their sporting events, hitting things in her strike fit and kickboxing classes, or hiding away with a book, she enjoys the opportunities she has been given as a speaker.
