Pendle Hill’s Podcast

The Seed Invites Quakers and Other Seekers into Conversations for Radical Hope

On October 2, in celebration of World Quaker Day, Pendle Hill released the first episode of our podcast The Seed: Conversations for Radical Hope.

For almost a century, Pendle Hill has welcomed Quakers and other seekers into our living experiment in spiritual learning community, weaving together themes of faith and practice, prophetic witness, and creative exploration. Today, the podcast invites listeners around the world to join our conversations, exploring together visions of the world growing up through the cracks in our broken systems.

The podcast’s host, Dwight Dunston, is a West Philly-based facilitator, hip-hop artist, educator, and activist who has brought his creativity, care, and compassion to schools, community centers, retirement homes, festivals, and stadiums all over the country and internationally.

In the opening episode, Dwight and Pendle Hill executive director Francisco Burgos share with the audience their dreams for The Seed. They welcome listeners into the podcast as an expansion of Pendle Hill’s spaces of transformation, a greenhouse for nurturing hopeful visions of the world that is possible.

Season One will feature host Dwight in conversation with Pendle Hill community members, teachers, artists, activists, changemakers, and visionaries, including Rev. Rhetta Morgan, Cai Quirk, Eileen Flanagan, and Ricardo Levins Morales. In each episode, guests share the experiences, learnings, and seeds that have transformed and shaped their work, their spiritual journeys, and themselves.

The Seed is now available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, and all other major podcast platforms. See a full list of platforms here. Subscribe and follow wherever you get your podcasts to get each episode in your library as it’s released.
