This week we talk to author and social justice advocate, Christine Caine. Christine recently wrote the book Undaunted and co-founded the anti-human trafficking organization, The A21 Campaign (along with her husband Nick). We also spotlight one of our favorite new worship bands, the Brooklyn-based neo-alternative project Young Oceans. And if that wasn't enough, we introduce a new cast member, welcome back an old cast member, and find out why Jesse once served a church announcement suspension...

Question of the Week
What nickname should we give to Eddie, our new podcast member?
This week we're excited to welcome a new cast member, Eddie Kaufholz, to our crew. And while Eddie is fun, lovable and an all-around great addition, it's clear that he needs help in finding a nickname. Naturally, this is where you come in. Take a moment to study the picture of Eddie (posted above) and then tell us what Eddie's new nickname should be, along with the backstory surrounding the creation of this nickname. We'll try out our favorites on Eddie next week and see which one fits the best! Oh, and feel free to connect with Eddie and welcome him to the crew. His Twitter is @EdwardorEddie.
