Elizabeth Oldfield speaks to ‘Science Mike’ Mike HcHargue. 11/08/2021
Mike McHargue, also known as ‘Science Mike’, is a podcaster of very long–standing. He was formerly co–host of ‘The Liturgists’ and host of ‘Ask Science Mike’ and he’s now host of ‘The Cozy Robot Show’. He’s also the author of ‘Finding God in the Waves’ and more recently ‘You’re a Miracle and a Pain in the Ass’.
He speaks about the process of losing his childhood faith and subsequently finding his way to contemplative Christianity via science and an ecstatic experience, his sacred value of equity, how we as humans tend to process trauma when we leave a tribe, and why he thinks it’s really important for him to publicly identify as disabled.
