Creating > Consuming | 61

'Creator' the noun can collapse on its own weight, especially on the internet — but this word doesn't only apply to social media influencers, artists, or inventors. We're all creators. And, as Seth and Tsh are joined around the table by their friend, Haley...

Dostoevsky said it will change the world. Confucius said everything has it, but not everyone sees it. Shakespeare, Plato, and others wondered if it was in the eye of the beholder. Beauty matters in our everyday lives; it's not an extra "nice to have." But where do we...

We all KNOW we're supposed to work out, but knowing that doesn't make many of us do it. Seth and Tsh aren't workout-obsessed, but as working parents in their early 40s who'd like to be around a good while, they've reaped the benefits of doing the hard work anyway. How...

Friendship During Chaos | 58

January 6, 2021. How do we make sense of it? The short answer is we don't; the longer answer is that we choose joy, hope, and peace though we've considered all the facts. Seth and Tsh check in on how they're doing with all the news, work through how we deal with the...

Seth Haines

I am a writer and photographer who loves the Ozarks, my wife and four boys, and a good collection of poems. I’m the author of two books, both of which touch on addiction, sobriety, and spiritual formation. You can pick up a copy of The Book of Waking Up: Experiencing the Divine Love That Reorders a Life and the award-winning book Coming Clean: A Story of Faith wherever books are sold.

Tsh Oxenreider

I’m a writer of a few books and a fairly fantastic newsletter, and I’ve been podcasting since the internet days of smoke signals. I’m also a travel guide when there’s no plague, but most days I’m content to sit with my husband and three kids and watch the hens rummage through our backyard garden in Central Texas.

Yep, it’s spelled correctly. More here.

Yep, this is formerly The Good List.

In 2020, Tsh launched The Good List, a short podcast about the little things that make life better. Seth joined her for a series at the end of the year, and together they decided to make this long-term, changing the name of the show to reflect the sacramental goodness of ordinary things — like a conversation with a friend over drinks. The show will still include art, ideas, habits, and things that make life better — just like The Good List. Only better.
