About
Welcome to Master of a Few; the podcast where the curious mind meets too much time.

Master of a Few - Seg. 61 - My Father
Going to woods, getting a oil change, Folgers Breakfast Blend coffee, making breakfast, getting called "Buddy"...all of these things remind me of one person. He taught me to be a good man when he didn't even know I was watching. This segment is about my dad. We have a complicated relationship, but I love him and he'd be proud of the kind of man I am.

Master of a Few - Seg. 60 - Embodiment...A Learning Process
Hey guess what...bodies aren't bad. It's a novel thought, I know. Learning how to live in my body instead of just ignoring it and trying to live as a disembodied brain is quite a difficult process, but it can be so rewarding. I hope you enjoy my ramblings about embodiment! YouTube: The Careful Poet My Book! Confessions of the Careful Poet

Master of a Few - Seg. 57 - Hard Truths
There are things that it just sucks to accept. The reality of trauma or abuse or having to accept when something is just so unfair and there is nothing you can do to fix it. Hard truths suck, but they are so important. This segment is about some of the hard things I am learning to recognize and starting to accept...sort of.

Master of a Few - Seg. 52 - Reality & Interpretation
Do you ever have moments when you feel like this can't be real? There is no way this is your actual life. That can come in both a positive and negative flavor, but it can be a great feeling to feel grounded in the world. In this segment, I want to talk about dissociation, reality, and how interpretation changes everything. Enjoy!

Master of a Few - Seg. 51 - Acceptance?
Hey everyone, welcome back to Master of a Few. On this segment, I wanted to update you on some fantastic stuff in my life, but also talk about something that has been difficult for me. This segment is on acceptance, but not the acceptance you're thinking of. This is the kind of acceptance where you accept that some people will never be able to be happy for you or truly love you. It's hard, but it brings so much peace. I hope this helps someone! Master of a Few has an Instagram! @mackofafew Youtube Channel - The Careful Poet My Book - Confessions of the Careful Poet

Master of a Few - Seg. 47 - When There's Nothing to Do
 Hey everyone, it's Mack, and welcome back to Master of a Few; the podcast where the curious mind meets too much time. Does anyone else struggle with waiting? I am a notoriously impatient person and I hate feeling like there is nothing to do. This has been my struggle for the summer, but particularly in the past weeks as I have been trying to live with WWJD on the forefront of my mind. So, in this segment, I talk about what it means to be Christ-like when you are in a time of rest or waiting or frankly, helplessness. Sometimes God brings us there for rest and sometimes it's to teach us patience. I am trying to learn both. I hope this helps somebody else who is finding themselves with nothing they can do.

Master of a Few - Seg. 46 - What Would Jesus Do
Hey everyone, it's Mack, and welcome back to Master of a Few; the podcast where the curious mind meets too much time. Do you know where the motto "What Would Jesus Do?" came from? It is from an amazing book called "In His Steps" by Charles M. Sheldon. He wrote this book about the congregation of Henry Maxwell and the challenge they undertook. This challenge was to ask one question before making any decision "What would Jesus do?" and then to act accordingly regardless of the consequences. This is what I talk about in this week's segment of Master of Few.  I'm taking on this challenge and I urge you to try it to. Let's see what happens when we let Christ's example become real in our lives. My Youtube Channel! The Careful Poet My Book! Confessions of the Careful Poet

Hey everyone, it's Mack, and welcome back to Master of a Few; the podcast where the curious mind meets too much time. As I'm sure you can tell from the title, this is the last segment of Master of a Few that will be recorded in Pennsylvania. Tomorrow morning, I will be hitting the road for Nashville and this time to stay. PA has been home for 4 years and it was here that I really grew up. I figured out who I was, I came out, I lost everything, I gained so much more, I fell in love, I got my heart broken, I made friends and family, I made mistakes, I hurt people, and I learned so much. Thank you to every single person who was a character in this chapter of my story, for how ever short a time. I might be leaving PA tomorrow but I've leaving a special piece of my heart here. I hope you enjoy this reflective segment! Check out my book! Confessions of the Careful Poet (Available on Amazon)

Master of a Few - Seg. 43 - Always a Choice
Hey everyone, it's Mack and welcome back to Master of a Few; the podcast where the curious mind meets too much time. Sometimes people we love and respect make us feel like we have no choice but to do the wrong thing; whether it's lying or treating someone in an unloving way or walking away from someone you love. Well guess what? You always have a choice. No matter how scared you are, you always have a choice. The choice to love and the choice to fight and the choice to leave.

I get to go to pride this weekend, so I wanted to take a few minutes and explain why Pride is important to me and to the LGBTQ+ community. I hope this is informative for some people, but please keep in mind that these are only my views and I can in no way speak for the whole community. I can't wait for another chance to celebrate our community and I hope you get a chance to celebrate too! Stay safe and happy Pride!

Master of a Few - Seg. 38 - They're Trans...Now What?
Hey everyone, it's Mack and welcome back to Master of a Few; the podcast where the curious mind meets too much time. Maybe you've had this moment already and maybe it's coming for you soon; but at some point in all of my friends' lives, they have had to ask a question. "Mack is trans...what do I do now?" It can be scary if you've never had a friend who is trans before and all of a sudden someone you love comes out. What do you do? How do you respond? What if you believe transitioning is a sin but you still want to love them well? I don't have all of the answers, but I hope this helps someone at least a little bit.

Hey everyone, it's Mack and welcome back to Master of a Few; the podcast where the curious mind meets too much time. Do people accuse you of being a pessimist because you acknowledge that this world we live in sucks? Have you ever been asked why you don't seem to have any hope for this world? I have and I want to clear it up. I am not afraid to acknowledge that things suck currently because I have hope in something incorruptible, unfading, and eternal. That's what this episode is about; hope, but not the hope that fades. Maybe someone needs to hear this, maybe not, but I hope you enjoy it. MY BOOK!

Hey everyone, it's Mack and welcome back to Master of a Few; the podcast where the curious mind meets too much time.  It's been 2 weeks since my last segment because I've been trying to figure out which direction to take this little project. I think I've settled on doing some more scripture study over the next few weeks, so prepare yourself for that. To start us off, this week's segment is about the crucifixion since it is Good Friday after all. I hope you enjoy our look at Luke 23.  My book still exists!

Master of a Few - Seg. 35 - Shut Up
Hey everyone, it's Mack and welcome back to Master of a Few; the podcast where the curious mind meets too much time. "Shut up" is a phrase I have heard way to many times in my life. Whether because I was socialized as a female, or because I was too liberal, or because I was too conservative, or too trans, people have regularly told me that my voice isn't worth hearing. This segment is about how we cannot shut up. Choosing to be quiet and let the majority voices have the floor unchallenged is how we lose the fights for equality and love and freedom. Someone I greatly respect and admire told me "Don't be quiet because if you are quiet then the world will never change." This is me speaking up and I hope it encourages someone else to do the same.

Master of a Few - Seg. 34 - Obtrusive Love
Hey everyone, it's Mack and welcome back to Master of a Few; the podcast where the curious mind meets too much time. If you asked a bunch of people how they could know if someone was a Christian, what would they say? I have a feeling it wouldn't be the fact that they love too well even though that's exactly what Christ said we should be known for. Today, I want to talk about radical, obtrusive, ridiculous love; the kind of love that people see and wonder what is wrong with that person that they are able to love like that. According to Christ, it's this kind of love that is supposed to set Christians apart and in the divided hate-filled world we live in today, that kind of love is our only hope.

Hey everyone, it's Mack and welcome back to Master of a Few; the podcast where the curious mind meets too much time. Yesterday was my birthday! I've been out and proud as myself for  3 years now and that's amazing! This segment is the break down of the lyrics to the song The Village by Wrabel which is in the background to my new transition timeline video which you can find here. It has some very true and powerful lyrics about being trans that I want to talk about. Check out the music video here. My book is still available on Amazon. Click here.

I'm not saying I'm perfect and I've got this Christian life thing down; however, I am saying that it astounds me how people can treat others absolutely horribly and do it in the name of Jesus.

I will never understand why people think they get to ask me super invasive personal questions before they know my name.

Therefore, I decided to talk about why I am not angry with various groups of people who admittedly do not treat me well or have not treated me well in the past. This ought to be a fun one. (That was actually only mildly sarcastic). Enjoy! Tell me things on Twitter! @Mackofafew Music: http://www.purple-planet.com

Master of a Few - Seg. 11 - Don't be a Tin Can
Hey everyone! It's Mack and welcome back to Master of a Few; the podcast where the curious mind meets too much time. Full disclosure, this segment is a mess. I had a fantastic topic, but I also have a terrible memory and poor planning skills. As a result, this is a little bit about redemption, a little about being bold, and if you wait long enough, you'll figure out why the title is a thing. I do promise that next week will be a good one with some poetry and planning. Questions, comments, topics, disapproval of my shameful metaphors?

Master of a Few - Seg. 9 - Evangelicals 101
Hey everyone, it's Mack! Welcome back to Master of a Few; the podcast where the curious mind meets too much time. Have you ever visited a friend's church and had absolutely no clue what was going on? This is a common occurrence for anyone visiting an evangelical church because we evangelicals have a language and culture all our own. In today's segment, I want to look at a few phrases and traditions that evangelicals seem to have trademarked. Topic ideas, comments, questions, etc.?

Master of a Few - Seg. 8 - A Well Placed Silence
Hey everyone, it's Mack again! This is the first time that I haven't made my Friday upload schedule, but I'm blaming a computer update that deleted my editing software and made me find a new program. On this segment, we are going to talk about when silence is a good thing and not just the awkward result of being placed in a room with someone you have nothing in common with. I also decided to keep with my plan of adding my poetry to my segments since I liked how it turned out last time! Thanks for tuning back in! Comment, questions, topic ideas, want to tell me how sad you were when this didn't come out yesterday? Send them to me on Twitter! @Mackofafew Music: http://www.purple-planet.com

Master of a Few - Seg. 6 - Growing Pains
Welcome back to Master of a Few! I have great news for you. Growing pains are not something you grew out of when you turned 13! Well, you kind of did, but on this segment, I'm going to talk about growing pains that I and many other Christian college students experience. We're going to discuss the often unpleasant process of deconstructing and reconstructing our faith during our college years. It hurts, it is not very fun, it is very scary, but it is completely normal, and I think, completely necessary! Want to tell me a story? Have topic ideas, comments, questions, etc.?

Master of a Few - Seg. 3 - The Devil Made Me Do It
Welcome back to Master of a Few, thanks for sticking with me and making it to this third segment! Have you ever heard anyone say, "the Devil made me do it,"? This isn't just an excuse given by overly pious five-year-olds. Christians are to this day are blaming Satan for all kinds of circumstances and situations in their lives and frankly, I don't think he deserves this much credit. So, join me for today's segment where I want to give Satan a credit check. Have topics, comments, or questions? Send them to me on Twitter at @mackofafew Music: http://www.purple-planet.com

Welcome back to Master of a Few; if you have no idea what this is, go check out my intro segment, otherwise, thanks for coming back! In this segment, I want to talk about love and what it really means to love someone unconditionally. I'm not focusing entirely on romantic love, but I do become a living love poem briefly so be prepared and you will be warned ahead of time. Also, this segment comes with a content warning for the use of the KJV Bible so if you are particularly sensitive to the use of old english please proceed with caution; I don't want anyone getting hurt.
