Guest Co-Host for 2018 Season Opener: Lauren Smelser White

We are pleased to announce that Dr. Lauren Smelser White will guest co-host our upcoming episode “Dylan. Jesus. America.”

I happen to like Alabamians with Ph.D.’s in theology. (There is not a great host of us. But it’s a classic example of breaking down false dichotomies. I mean, Yankees don’t know what to do with smart people with southern accents who care about social justice and intellectual rigor. It creates a sort of existentialist crisis for many of them.) Lauren is a recently minted Ph.D. in theology from Vanderbilt University, and more importantly, she is an Alabama native, with roots and relations in the northern reaches of the state, where the swampers would do their magic in the Muscle Shoals music scene, and indeed, where Bob Dylan recorded his 1979 album Slow Train Coming.

Lauren also happens to be a new colleague of mine in the academic scene, and a delightful one at that. She has also blogged on occasion on the Tokens Show blog (with a stellar post on Mother’s Day, a few weeks ago), been a good friend for a good while, and we welcome her in joining us for our 2018 season opener on June 7.


Don’t miss the show June 7. Joining Lauren will be U.S. Poet Laureate Tracy K. Smith, celebrated novelist Tobias Wolff, folk-rock band The New Respects, Matthew Perryman Jones, and our Most Outstanding Horeb Mountain Boys. Get tickets now by clicking here.
