Co-hosted and co-produced by bestselling author and speaker Patsy Clairmont and Dove Award-nominated singer/songwriter and author Andrew Greer, the podcast’s second season has already debuted conversational “bridges” with some of today’s leading voices of faith, including Emmy-winning television host, author and recording artist Kathie Lee Gifford; singer/songwriter, author and Rabbit Room founder Andrew Peterson; and chart-topping singer/songwriter and author Tasha Layton, to name a few.
New this week, Bridges showcases award-winning comedian and singer/songwriter Mark Lowry, with upcoming guests to include New York Times bestselling author and speaker Jon Acuff; GRAMMY®-nominated singer/songwriter Danny Gokey and his wife Leyicet; and author, speaker and popular illusionist Harris III, among numerous inspiring personalities from all walks of life.
Throughout the next four weeks Clairmont and Greer will turn their focus to Black History Month with a series of important conversations, including a February 7 episode with lauded vocalist and former American Idol contestant Melinda Doolittle on her journey towards understanding in race relations. In addition, Bridges will revisit a key interview from its first season with Dove Award winner Lynda Randle. The Gospel songstress shares some of her experiences facing racism and why being committed to unity is so crucial in the February 14 episode.
“Patsy and I began co-hosting Bridges in 2020, a humdinger of a year marked not only by the introduction of a global pandemic, but our nation’s struggle to balance racial relations and political unrest,” Greer explains. “The ability to pause, sit around a table, and ask questions of guests from all ages, backgrounds and perspectives has given Patsy and me a new foundation for seeking understanding in the hardest of dialogues, as well as a fresh lens through which to experience our faith. Hopefully this is what our listeners receive from these inspiring and enlightening conversations as well.”
“I have loved embracing these ‘bridges’ confirming the importance of connections that bring us together,” Clairmont adds. “Andrew and I set a high priority on learning and growing so I’m thrilled we will be showcasing even more guests of all ages and all walks of life who will unite us with their stories, music and faith.”
