The Holy Post is a popular podcast about culture, theology, politics, and living a thoughtful Christian life. The hosts include VeggieTales creator Phil Vischer, author Skye Jethani (formerly of Christianity Today), and voice actress Christian Taylor who does a great job of injecting her layperson’s questions into the conversations. Together they make a very thoughtful and entertaining team. The Holy Post has a five-star rating on Apple Podcasts with over 2,400 reviews.
The team wanted to give out a fun t-shirt to their backers on Patreon. I was hired to illustrate the three hosts (plus Plinky Pete, Phil’s ukulele) in a retro Scooby Doo parody style. I grew up watching the original Scooby Doo every Saturday morning on TV so this was extra fun to draw!
To keep the podcast from getting too serious Phil has a recurring segment called News of the Butt. News stories about our rear ends are surprisingly common and Phil takes a childish glee in sharing them, much to the eye-rolling disdain of co-host Christian Taylor. Vischer also asked me to illustrate a logo for the segment which they use on the video version of the podcast (available on their YouTube channel).
I’ve been listening to the podcast off and on for a few years now. The content is always thoughtful, entertaining, and sometimes challenging. They are closing in on 500 episodes. If you are looking for thoughtful Christian discussions on culture and current events, check out The Holy Post.
