Filmmaker, podcaster, and academic Helen Rollins comes on the show even though she’s probably sick of Gnosticism (she’s Jon’s thesis advisor). It’s a conversation that goes everywhere including the relevance of theology even if you’re not religious, art, trying to create during these Gnostic times, dialectical dialogues, filmmaking, and how embracing contradiction can set us free (well…free-ish).
