In this episode, they talk about how Micah’s experience of studying abroad prompted his interest in theology, his time volunteering in Belize, and his thoughts on technology in the classroom. They also discuss his new book, Apocalyptic Ecology, and how it relates to contemporary discussions of climate change.
