Pulled Up Short is a podcast that aims to create moments of being “pulled up short”—experiences of surprise and curiosity when we encounter an idea, text, or experience that challenges our ways of thinking and deeply held assumptions about the world.
Each episode features a different insight, with each one asking us to entertain the possibility of a different worldview and re-examine some of our presuppositions.
