The Habit Podcast: Matthew Dickerson


The Habit Podcast is a series of conversations with writers about writing, hosted by Jonathan Rogers. This week, Jonathan Rogers talks with novelist and Inklings scholar Matthew Dickerson.

Songs from the Silent Passage explores the literary career of Walt Wangerin, Jr. through a collection of essays by Wangerin’s friends and colleagues—including Eugene Peterson, Luci Shaw, Philip Yancey, and John Wilson—edited into its final form by Matthew Dickerson. In this episode, Matthew and Jonathan discuss the relationship between pain and beauty in storytelling and the idea that art “won’t hug a pulpit.”
