In this episode of Unspoken, Miles and Ruthie sat down with one of the most fascinating, curious and hilarious humans on the planet, Jedidiah Jenkins. He is a writer, friend, adventurer, and executive editor of Wilderness Magazine. While listening, you'll hear how they explore the intricacies of what makes Jed the unique, lovable, brilliant world changer that he is.
They dive deep into the challenges and narrative of growing up as a gay Christian in the Bible Belt in the 1980's, the importance of family and faith, and the difficulties of being true to who you are — even when it comes at a cost. We hope you will be inspired by the amazing kindness and grace that Jed shows in every aspect of his life. His memoir to Shake the Sleeping Self, which is mentioned throughout this conversation, can be purchased online here.
