The Molehill Podcast: The Integrated Imagination (feat. Andrew Peterson & Shigé Clark)


Wherein Shigé Clark reads her poems “The Origin of Wind” and “Love Is This,” Andrew Peterson reads “The Integrated Imagination” from his book Adorning the Dark, Drew Miller shares this week’s Word of Befuddlement (“spudgeon”), and we receive a special visit from Drew of the Future.

First published in Volume 1 of The Molehill, “The Integrated Imagination” follows Andrew’s journey from his self-conscious love of fantasy literature as a kid to the redemption of that love as a worthy site of engagement with the gospel.

Words of Befuddlement

Words of Befuddlement is a special Molehill Podcast segment inspired by games like Dictionary and Balderdash. In fact, it’s no different, except that the word in question doesn’t exist anywhere other than in the notorious mind of Pete Peterson (so don’t go looking for it in a dictionary).

Each week, Drew Miller (host of The Molehill Podcast) will share a new Word of Befuddlement and ask you to send in your very own definition to The following week, he will read some of the definitions he received and reveal the “correct” definition as determined by Pete.

The seventh Word of Befuddlement, shared in today’s episode, is the verb “spudgeon.” You can send in your very own definition of “spudgeon” to Drew, and he might just read it on next week’s show. And who knows? You may even guess correctly.
