Nashville, TN (November 4, 2020)
Landing in the Top 15 on the Apple Religion & Spirituality Podcast Chart following its debut last month, Bridges with Patsy Clairmont and Andrew Greer: Spiritual Connections Through Generational Conversations invites listeners of all ages to find common ground embracing a fierce faith in a tough season.
Presented by Food for the Hungry and HarperCollins/Thomas Nelson for the Abide Bible, Bridges is co-hosted and co-produced by bestselling author and speaker Patsy Clairmont and Dove Award-nominated singer/songwriter, author and occasional CCM content contributor, Andrew Greer. Rooted in the hosts’ own generation-spanning friendship, the show—available via Apple Podcasts, Spotify and Pandora—highlights conversational “bridges” with some of today’s leading voices of faith.
“We all wish we could leap over hurt, hardship and heartbreak into the arms of Hope, but the chasm is deep and dangerous,” Clairmont explains. “So instead, we’re building a bridge! With Andrew Greer, my fun-loving cohort, and our amazing guests, we converse our way toward Hope week after week.”
Author, speaker and social media influencer Carlos Whittaker is Clairmont and Greer’s debut guest, discussing the risky, yet rewarding, frontiers of a “wild” faith, as well as practical ways to overcome anxiety. A subsequent episode features bestselling author and speaker Rebekah Lyons, sharing her insight on patterning lives marked by peace.
“Since I was a kid growing up in rural Texas, I have always been drawn to folks of all ages, from all different sorts of backgrounds and life stories,” Greer shares. “So when Patsy and I first met several years ago—even though we are from different generations and opposite ends of the country—it was friends-at-first-sight. Every episode, every topic, every guest on Bridges has been a lively education for me. This is truly an ‘all ages’ podcast.”
With a new episode available each Tuesday, upcoming Bridges guests include Cy Young Award-winning MLB pitcher Barry Zito; sister recording artists and YouTube stars Cimorelli; comedian Anita Renfroe; GRAMMY-nominated trio Point of Grace; acclaimed singer/songwriter Jason Gray; and beloved Gaither Homecoming artist Lynda Randle, among others.
