About the show
All Rev’d Up explores where faith intersects politics and culture. Reverend Irene Monroe and Reverend Emmett G. Price III come from different black faith perspectives, they’re of different generations, they hail from different parts of the country, and they come together in this podcast to talk about faith in a different way. They don’t always agree, but they always hear each other out. Dive into conversations around race, faith, and this week’s headlines with the Revs every other Wednesday. When something happens in the world, you want their take on it. All Rev’d Up is produced by WGBH.
I love the interplay and engagement between these two scholars. I’ve always enjoyed their weekly spots on WGBH Radio. I’m thrilled that we get to have longer segments. We need more shows like this. Many more.— Strid8
I love listening to you both on WGBH, and so glad you have podcast now. It’s everything I thought it would be.— Joyce from Boston
Rev. Irene Monroe is described in O, the Oprah Magazine, as “a phenomenal woman who has succeeded against all odds.” An African-American lesbian feminist public theologian, she is a sought-after speaker and preacher. As an religion columnist she tries to inform the public of the role religion plays in discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people. The United Nations International School wrote that Monroe’s role in the fight against homophobia and written activism for human rights has truly made an impact on world and theories on religion and homosexuality in the U.S.
