UnDaunted by Telos

Undaunted is the podcast that is both conversation and invitation. Our podcast features stories from the front-lines of peacemaking. As you listen in on these conversations, be challenged to take up the counter-cultural, dangerous, and joyous life of peacemaking yourself.

CODESWITCH

Named Apple Podcasts’ first-ever Show of the Year in 2020, CODE SWITCH is a podcast hosted by journalists of color tackling the subject of race with empathy and humor. Their episodes explore how race affects every part of society — from politics and pop culture to history, food and everything in between. Code Switch was named Apple Podcasts’ first-ever Show of the Year in 2020.

White Lies

In 1965, Rev. James Reeb was murdered in Selma, Alabama. Three men were tried and acquitted, but no one was ever held to account. Fifty years later, two journalists from Alabama return to the city where it happened, expose the lies that kept the murder from being solved and uncover a story about guilt and memory that says as much about America today as it does about the past.

Selma Center for Nonviolence, Truth, and Reconciliation

The Selma Center for Nonviolence, Truth, and Reconciliation is Telos’s partner organization in the U.S. South. Their work involves the collective implementation of personal, cultural and institutional solutions from innovative models from all over the world to build a transformed community of mutual flourishing and justice.
