The Second Muse, Episode Two: Jordy Searcy

By The Rabbit Room

Chances are, if you’ve been hanging around the blog, you’ve seen something about our new Podcast Network. Needless to say, we’re elated about this new avenue for sharing meaningful conversations—this network will be home to several promising podcasts, including The Artist’s Creed (bringing creativity into dialogue with the Apostles’ Creed), a best-of past Hutchmoot sessions compiled into Hutchmoot: The Podcast, and even The Membership, a podcast centering around the work of Wendell Berry (oh yes we did). Well, one of our new podcasts, led by Drew Miller, is called The Second Muse: How Songs Become Songs, and a new episode has released today.

“Maybe Next Year” (Andrew Peterson & Ben Shive)

Season 1 | Episode 1

In the Hutchmoot Podcast we’re opening up the archives to share recordings of a variety of speakers and topics from years past. This first episode features someone who has been a part of the Rabbit Room since the very beginning, Russ Ramsey. Russ is a pastor in Nashville, Tennessee, an author of four fantastic books which you can find in the Rabbit Room Store, and as you’ll hear in the talk we’re about to play, he’s a remarkble essayist and a thoughtful appreciator of art, and in particlular, the art of Vincent Van Gogh. This session from Hutchmoot 2017 is called “The Striving Artist.”
