This week on Here After with Megan Devine:
New Year, Same Old Feelings
The end of the year is always a flurry of resolutions and “next year will be even better!” sentiments. If your life has been anything but awesome lately, a “new year, new start” can feel impossible.
In this special two-part episode, we face the new year together – with a re-release of my conversation with historian, author, and queen of awkward conversations, Kate Bowler.

- Finding motivation to set goals for yourself
- The difference between transactional hope and functional hope
About our guest:
Kate Bowler, PhD, is an associate professor of the history of Christianity in North America at Duke Divinity School. Author of the New York Times bestselling memoir, Everything Happens for a Reason, Dr. Bowler stages a national conversation around why it’s so difficult to speak frankly about suffering through her popular podcast, Everything Happens. She has appeared on NPR, The TODAY Show, The New York Times, The Washington Post, and TIME Magazine. Her latest book, No Cure For Being Human, grapples with her diagnosis, her ambition, and her faith as she tries to come to terms with limitations in a culture that says anything is possible.
