In one of our best conversations yet, in Episode 54 Jason and Taylor talk with Becca Stevens.

Becca is an Episcopal priest at Vanderbilt Chapel in Nashville, Tennessee, author of Snake Oil and many other books, and, most importantly, she is the founder of Thistle Farms, the largest social enterprise in the U.S. run by survivors of sex trafficking.

She’s also up for CNN’s Hero award. Voting is open until 12/6 and you can vote as many as 10x/day – please support this impressive endeavor.

Do it. And buy your Christmas presents from Thistle Farms too!

I don’t throw around the term ‘blessed’ very often but that’s how I felt for having gotten the change to talk with Becca.
