About Us

Sheology is a podcast about the intersection of faith and feminism. Rubie, Kristen and Biz explore topics relating to gender, identity and more through the lens of our experience growing up Christian. We bring in guests, we chat about big issues, and we like to challenge everything we believe. Also TV. We talk about TV a lot.

Isolation Special #3: Sheology Q+A

EIf you missed our live episode in May, never fear - we recorded it for you! We’ve edited the discussion a little bit for length but all the best parts are there, featuring laughably sexist sermons, ABC’s controversial podcasting sketch, Beyonce, mansplainers on Twitter, Christian feminist book recs, and several other topics keeping our brains busy while we’re stuck at home.

Isolation Special #2: Braless, Bald and Bold

EOur bras are off, our ends split, our fancy clothes packed away and razors forgotten - unless we’re running them over our heads. In Sheology’s second iso special we discuss beauty ideals and expectations for women in the age of coronavirus, including the delicious opportunity that staying at home affords us to, in the words of Frozen’s Elsa, let it goooo. Focus points include the fascinating trend of women shaving their heads, the unsettling pressure to keep weight off and the influence of beauty corporations that just want all our money. Ladies, you have nothing to lose but your (expensive handbag) chains!

Isolation Special #1: What The Fuck, God

EThe episode in which we wonder what exactly the fucking deal is with coronavirus! Whether or not we should direct our swears at any holy person upstairs, it certainly has gate crashed 2020, prompting us to delay S3 and instead apply our brew of feminist rants, weird jokes and church-related introspection to three special episodes about the crisis. In this first one, we consider the Christian response to COVID-19, from our PM’s prayers to churches moving online and what people mean when they say God is in control of [gestures wildly].... all this.

Isolation Special #1: What The Fuck, God

Christians Who Trended in 2019

EIs it just us, or have Christians and their faith featured in the news more than usual this year? As a podcast with an interest in religion, politics, feminism and Hailey Bieber’s weird Instagrams, it would be remiss of us not to look back on 2019 and say “hope or nope” to some of the biggest news stories with churchgoers in the spotlight. So come, all Kanye faithful (but please don’t let it ScoMo), we’re wrapping up the year, Sheology style.

Christians Who Trended in 2019

Honest to Pod

EWhen someone says honest to God, they want to emphasise their feelings or stress the truth of something… sounds like an episode of Sheology! By now we’re experts at unearthing our feelings, vigorously debating them, and sometimes returning to them later to reevaluate, or underline something that feels really important. And in a season that saw us unpack topics like #auspol and abortion, interview two Aboriginal women about growing up on missions and visit a gay church, there’s a lot to underline.

Take Me to (Gay) Church

EQueer folk are born this way, and some like to pray! For our season closer we visit Metropolitan Community Church, where people of all gender identities and sexual orientations are enthusiastically welcomed. Joining the Sheology crew of one agnostic and two church-shy Christians is Heather Chaffey, a social justice advocate who works in the community sector and is also atheist and queer. Together we discuss some challenges faced by LGBT+ believers and the joys of belonging to an inclusive faith community.

Women on a Mission: Part 2

ELast week we heard from two Aboriginal aunties about growing up on missions run on white, Christian beliefs. We’ve cheekily labelled this a part two, cause where Sandra and Nel had important stories to tell about the mission experience, those who attend church mission trips don’t always learn as much about what communities in need actually... need. Plus we explore the related, kinda bewildering trend of voluntourism. If you want to help people but avoid white saviour behaviour, we might be able to assis

Women on a Mission: Part 1

E“We’re mums, dads, aunties, nans, pops, school counsellors, teachers.” For this episode we spoke to Aunty Sandra and Narelle, two women from the Wiradjuri and Muruwari nations respectively who work as Aboriginal education officers. We were curious about their experience of living on missions, as many Aboriginal people have been forced to do - with the expectation they stick to white, Christian values. But we also discussed the forced removal of Aboriginal children, teaching Indigenous histories and mo

Let's Talk Abortion

EAs many as one in three Australian women will have an abortion in their lifetime, yet access, affordability and a stigma-free experience is not guaranteed. Recent abortion bans in the US, changes to local legislation and the ongoing struggle of women everywhere for reproductive rights tell us this is a good time to talk about it… but it ain't easy! We attempt to provide our Christian listeners with some guidance while also destroying shitty pro-life myths and featuring the stories of women behind the stat
