Believe it or not, the Rabbit Room Podcast aired its first episode a decade ago, way back in 2008. In those ten years, it’s covered a LOT of territory, from sermons to movie reviews to cautionary tales about cassowaries. And while we’ve always loved the podcast, we’ve always felt it was a little unfocused, often trying to be too many things at once. At the same time, we’ve noticed around us a wealth of ideas just begging to grow into fully-realized podcasts of their own. So we’re putting the Rabbit Room Podcast itself out to pasture, but this isn’t a death, it’s an evolution. Welcome to the Rabbit Room Podcast Network.
Today we begin the closing weekend of Frankenstein with five final performances. It’s been a ton of fun to watch this show get to its feet and learn to run.
I’m at Lipscomb University this morning, about to walk in and talk to a group of students about theater, and as I do so, I’m overwhelmed by how lucky I am that I get to do this kind of work. The experience of writing a story and then seeing it incarnated in three dimensions on a stage is surreal. Read More ›
I’m a slow reader, and it’s rare that a writer comes along with a voice so captivating that I can’t stop reading. I finished this one in less than 24 hours (a real feat for me), and I’m just about to slip it onto my shelf of favorites right in between what I consider its spiritual forebears: Annie Dillard’s Pilgrim at Tinker Creek, and Robert Farrar Capon’s The Supper of the Lamb.

Each time I set out to put together a volume of The Molehill, I’m faced with a mystery. You see, unlike many magazines or journals, this isn’t a collection compiled according to a theme. There are few boundaries for what goes in and what stays out. “What are you looking for,” writers ask. I tell them to submit anything they’ve got; I’ll know it when I see it. But that itself is not the mystery. The mystery is that in an anthology of work that has no binding theme, a theme inevitably emerges. Read More ›
Like me, some of you are old enough to remember the “funny papers.” There’s not a lot I miss about reading a daily paper, but I do miss the comics, and especially on Sundays. Back in the now-hallowed ’80s we’d wander home from church and sit on the porch ruffling through the full-color pages in search of Peanuts, Calvin & Hobbes, The Far Side, and B. C. while waiting for the pot roast and mashed potatoes to hit the table. I miss that. And what is Silly-Putty even for without the funny papers? Read More ›
When Andrew Peterson and Chris Wall began talking about turning the Wingfeather books into an animated series, I remember thinking, Wow, that’s a great idea—but let’s be serious guys…
Two years later, here we are premiering the animated short film (both pilot and proof-of-concept) and it’s everything I hoped it would be and more. Read More ›

Happy Thanksgiving, folks! We’re thankful for all of you and want to offer a few words and songs you might find useful during today’s festivities. Now turn off your phones and computers and feast (right after you read this post). Read More ›
This animated short has been a long time in the making. Most people wouldn’t believe the amount of work that goes into something like this, and what Andrew and Chris Wall and the team have created here is something really amazing. Every frame is a living painting. Read More ›
