Making Connections – Hell’s Flames or Heaven’s Gate, revisited – 10/26/22

Listening back on this interview, I realized that Joann made a comment that encompasses my whole motivation for doing this show: “When you get to know people, it changes from something on paper to something in your heart…”

Hell’s flames or Heaven’s gates- an honest reflection on growing up as an Evangelical Christian. Poet and photographer Joann Boswell speaks about her new book, “Cosmic Pockets” which shares intimate thoughts on faith, spirituality, feminism, and motherhood, mixed with a dose of science fiction, just for fun. Our conversation focused mostly on the religion part- the impression all of the “hell teaching” makes on a young, developing mind.
