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 was born in Dudley of the United Kingdom and grew up in the West Country. He was on faculty at the Universities of Nottingham and Aberdeen before moving to the U.S. to teach at Westminster Theological Seminary (PA) in 2001 and is now also pastor of Cornerstone Presbyterian Church in Ambler. In his spare time he runs, listens to rock music, and does what his wife tells him. Carl relishes reading melancholy poetry, bleak and depressing nineteenth century novels, and hard-boiled crime fiction. Banned or blacklisted by most of the respectable evangelical establishment, 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.
Todd Pruitt grew up in Houston, Texas and served as a youth pastor and pastor in Southern Baptist churches until crossing Lake Geneva marking his 'journey' to becoming a reformed Presbyterian. He married, then graduated from Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, and now has three children. He is privileged to serve as Pastor of Covenant Presbyterian Church in Harrisonburg, Virginia where he exhibits a high regard for BASE jumping, interpretive dance, and puppies.
Aimee Byrd, an ordinary mom of three, lives in Martinsburg, West Virginia with her husband, Matt, and three children. Aside from that amazing gig, Aimee managed to make a fool of herself in martial arts training, survived college, dabbled in ceramics, owned a coffee shop (The Mudd Puddle), become a blogger, and does a little speaking on the side. Since her children's schedules have majorly cut into her social life, she has resorted to writing Housewife Theologian (P&R, 2013) and Theological Fitness (P&R, 2015), while keeping her blog alive and co-hosting a podcast with two no-name pastors.
