Ryan McKnight talks about being contacted by the anonymous video leaker and releasing them for him/her. He shares his own faith transition story, how and why he’s contacted by so many whistle blowers, and the implications for these people. Ryan talks more in depth on the process of receiving information, protecting his sources, and deciding whether materials will make an impact. On a practical level, we also discuss conversion/deconversion and what to do with the videos for folks who want to eagerly share them. We talk about how quick the GA’s were in one video to look to parents as responsible for YSA’s inactivity, how that relates to control, and what we can do about it to protect our relationships. We end with Ryan telling us more about his project, The Underground Handcart Company, which helps youth and young adults who have already decided to leave the church, to get help and resources so they can support themselves if they get disowned, fired, shunned, etc.
