Age of Minority: A New Podcast for Young People (And Their Parents)


I love listening to podcasts. (Probably too much.)

But there’s something fun and personal about listening in as real people have conversations about something meaningful (or, for that matter, about something utterly silly).

I started listening to podcasts last year, shortly after I turned 18. But as I searched and stumbled across more and more podcasts, I noticed something – I couldn’t find many for teenagers. At least, none that I wanted.

Where were the Christian young people (or even old people) who were podcasting about what it means to follow Jesus in this day and age as a young person?

I couldn’t find them.

So my dad (Sean) and I decided to do something about it.

Yep. We started a podcast. It’s called Age of Minority and it launches today.

What This Podcast is About

Age of Minority is about everything related to living for Jesus as a young person. We’ll talk theology and relationships and music and movies and books and school and procrastination and discipline and a whole lot of other things.

It’s about navigating our youth for the glory of God.

We know young people are busy, so the podcast is short – just around 30 minutes. And it will drop every Friday morning, just in time for some weekend listening.

Who This Podcast is For

Young people, of course! I’m 19, and I want to talk to other youth like me.

But this podcast is also for parents. It’s hosted by me and my dad. We want to model fun, healthy communication between youth and parents. I’ll be bringing the youth beat but my dad will be offering a parent’s perspective.

So maybe you want to consider listening to this podcast with your parents.

The First Episode

Today we released our first episode, The Launch. We talk about who we are and what this thing is about – and, fair warning, we’re kind of ridiculous doing it.

You can listen on iTunes or our website (

You can also follow us on Twitter (@ageofminority), like us on Facebook, or email me at [email protected].

If you’re a young person or a parent (or a youth worker or pastor or friend to a young person or acquaintance or enemy to a young person … or basically, anyone), would you consider tuning in?
