The Bonfire Sessions


With rawness and vulnerability, as well as a large dose of salty language, the hosts of The Bonfire Sessions spend one night a week around a fire pit, chatting about the big ideas of life. Sometimes funny, sometimes profound, but always honest, the two hosts will be sure to challenge your heart, soul, and mind. So, pour your favorite drink and fill your long-stemmed pipe, and get ready for some high-quality fellowship.
