VST Bruderholz Podcast

Bruderholz Podcast

The Bruderholz Podcast introduces the faculty of the Vancouver School of Theology in conversation about how their scholarship engages the church and the world God loves. Bruderholz is the name of a restaurant/pub in Basel, Switzerland where the theologian Karl Barth held informal conversations and then classes after his retirement in 1963. Barth said that in the university classroom teaching theology was formal presentation, in the pub is was more like gymnastics – testing and trying out some ideas.  We hope to catch the spirit of that engagement on this podcast.

Bruderholz is hosted by Principal Richard Topping along with Rector’s Cupboard Podcast host, Todd Wiebe. Production by VST student (and cohost of Rector’s Cupboard) Allision Williams who joins in the conversation.
