Meet Your Hosts, Courtney & Paul

Welcome to The Eudo Podcast! Join Courtney McLean and Paul Gould as they discuss human flourishing in a disenchanted world. Combining insightful analysis of theology, philosophy, and culture with entertaining discussion, Courtney and Paul hope to connect the deep longings of the human heart—for truth, goodness, beauty, justice, love, and happiness—to Jesus and the gospel. We hope to show that Christianity is both true to the way the world is and true to the way the world ought to be. Whether you are a believer, seeker, or non-seeker in God, join us as we explore the intersection of philosophy, theology, and culture.
