About the Podcast
Welcome to The Sons of Adam. In this podcast, the hosts, JP & B, celebrate the skills and virtues needed to become better sons, husbands and fathers and strive to develop a Christlike life. We choose the name “Sons of Adam” in reference to C.S. Lewis’ book “The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe”. In the book Lewis refers to the human kids that come to “Narnia” as “Sons of Adam” and “Daughters of Eve”, this title has reference both to gender and heritage. For heritage we believe men are created in the image of God (Gen 1:26) and we want to emphasize gender by helping men look to Jesus Christ as the the perfect man.
We believe in the strength of the family. The world needs men who are willing to be faithful in marriage and attentive in fatherhood. As J.E. McCulloch wrote, we think that, “No other success can compensate for failure in the home.”
The Sons of Adam presents genuinely heartfelt and sometimes silly discussions as JP & B explore what it means to be a true-believing Christian Man.
JP & B are both Mormon, and often times the discussion is colored by their faith.
I am a graduate of BYU-Idaho where I studied history and humanities, my wife and I still serve as “Alumni Ambassadors” for the school. Professionally I work as an archival technician for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I also currently serve in my church as the president of the young men’s organization.
I am an devoted member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I am passionate about family, liberty and financial responsibility (some would add college football). I enjoy hiking, cooking, classic rock and jazz music, going to the symphony, watching classic TV/Movies, shooting firearms, playing board games and riding my bike. When not working, remodeling my house or recording this podcast I try to read, garden, and generally make the world a better place.
In real life, I’m the entire IT department at a real estate investment and management company. I usually just tell people that I’m a programmer, because that’s my favorite part (& the largest part) of my job. In a perfect world, however, I’d be a full-time writer.
I’m very religious (LDS). Politically, I am just about a Libertarian. I love my family (a wife, three little girls, and a son). I love old pulp novels, radio theater, swing dancing, jazz and blues music, firearms, writing, reading and I believe in being prepared, laughing often, and showing respect to people around me.
