Things Not Seen engages in in-depth conversations about how faith and belief work in everyday life.

Things Not Seen is a weekly, long-form interview show with guests who confront challenges of faith and culture in unusual and compelling ways.

As people navigate political, corporate, personal, and religious worlds, issues of faith and culture come into conflict. Things Not Seen dives deep into these moments of conflict that are, after all, what the life of faith is all about.
