Upper House is pleased to announce the launch of The UpWords Podcast, a new initiative to engage with our community in Madison, Wisconsin and beyond.

Every two weeks we will bring you leaders, scholars, and thinkers who will help us explore the life of the mind and the questions of the soul from a Christian perspective. We will venture into the arts & humanities, justice & society, leadership, science & technology, spiritual formation, and theology. We will talk with guests about their backgrounds, lives, and insights. And you will have an inside view into Upper House itself, when team members share behind-the-scenes plans, aspirations, and takeaways from our ongoing events and learning cohorts.

Hosts will be Upper House staff, whose backgrounds and interests span many fields, including spiritual formation, history, writing, leadership, art, the university, theology, business, and more. You will hear a variety of voices speak into the burning issues of the day with wisdom, charity, and curiosity.  

It has been our pleasure to work with local Madison artists on the development of The UpWords Podcast. Musician Micah Behr, audio engineer Andy Johnson, and graphic designer Madeline Ramsey have significantly contributed to the podcast design and experience.

We hope you will join us as we journey together. Follow the link here to listen to the podcast’s brief trailer on your browser and subscribe wherever podcasts can be found.The UpWords Podcast will premiere its first episode, a conversation with historian Darren Dochuk, on Monday, November 2.
