Thee Quaker Podcast

Thee Quaker Podcast brings stories of spiritual courage to your ears.

Quakers (aka the Religious Society of Friends) have always wrestled with big questions in their search for spiritual truth. Thee Quaker Podcast is a continuation of that 400-year-old tradition — we’re digging deep to search for innovative stories that explore themes of faith, conviction, and doubt.

George Fox, one of the founders of Quakerism, believed there was “that of God” in everyone, and a “great people to be gathered.” Whether you are a lifelong Quaker, seeking a spiritual home, or simply passing by out of curiosity, we know you will find something that speaks to you in our podcast feed every week.

Trust us… for a group of people known for sitting quietly in worship, things can get kind of wild.
