Profile picture for Krystal Roberts

Krystal Roberts

I'm Krystal. I'm in love with language, artistic expression, and opportunities to learn and grow while helping others do the same. I've been a spoken word artist, graduated from art school, published poetry in Educational Psychology, deeply pondered and written about Lauryn Hill, taught college freshmen how to write, and worked in corporate America on and off for the last 17 years to put my business degree to use. It's been a journey. Fun. Scary. Dark. Exhilarating. Confusing. In short, it's been everything.

Matthew Linder

I'm Matt. I am obsessed with music and especially hip hop. I love exploring the intersections of race and religion in rap. I have a Masters in Music History and Literature and I have several published academic articles exploring musicians such as Lauryn Hill, Kendrick Lamar, Kanye West, and early Christian Hip Hop pioneers, Gospel Gangstaz. I also do work as a freelance podcast producer/editor, co-producing Christianity Today's Quick to Listen podcast with Morgan Lee, and worked as a podcast engineer/editor for We Wonder, The Rise and Fall of Mars Hill, and Prayer Amid Pandemic. The latter podcast won a first-place award from the Evangelical Press Association.
