Kim Walker-Smith

This week we talk to singer, songwriter and worship leader Kim Walker-Smith. As part of the Jesus Culture Band, Kim's voice is widely recognized, and her solo projects and new album with husband Skyler Smith, have helped make her one of our favorite worship leaders in today's church. During the rest of the podcast, the crew takes things down a few notches by talking about the wonders of falconry, old band names, and of course, the royal baby.

In 2003, I was at a tradeshow and spoke with a retail store customer and at the end of our conversation, I asked for her email address so that I could keep her informed of new products and things. She had kind of a weird look on her face then replied, "oh, well I don't really have one, but my store manager has an email address that I use sometimes." (now keep in mind also, that her store manager was a guy.) Then she tells me that her male store manager's email address was something along the lines of And then told me a few more times that the email address was not hers, but that of her store manager.

A couple of years ago, when my parents were still new to the world of Facebook, they apparently thought 'wall-to-wall' posts were private. One day when they were both getting out of work early, my mom posted on my dad's wall "Afternoon delight??" I didn't find out about this until the next weekend when they brought it up, embarrassed, only to then feel relief when I told them there was a way to delete it (which they'd had no idea about either!). Hopefully the damage was minimal, and my parents have learned their lesson about the dangers of flirting so boldly on a social networking site.

I was just thinking about you guys and falconers yesterday because a friend was telling us that they also bring in a falcon to our local school to scare off seagulls (because the kids leave such a mess at lunchtime). Maybe there's a US to UK price difference, because I somehow doubt the school is paying upwards of $2,000 for lunchtime seagull control.

Great post–I’ve bookmarked this one so that I can come back to it, as images and design are the weakest part of my online game. Great job choosing this topic, I hope you don’t mind if I share the link.
