Crossing Faiths


About Crossing Faiths

Two friends, Matt Hawkins (an Evangelical Christian) and John Pinna (a Muslim) talk religion and politics.

The podcast delivers weekly, 1 hour (or less) episodes featuring commentary on news, politics, multifaith experiences, and expert guests. The conversations build on a decade of collaboration, advocating in Washington, D.C. for religious freedom domestically and around the globe. The two developed the Crossing Faiths podcast with a desire to share conversations that model friendship and collaboration despite deep differences. Support our podcast via Patreon.

Matt and John are each available for speaking engagements. Visit their respective websites for event inquiries: Matt, John.
