CLEAN EARS VISION
Clean Ears is a podcast that shows you the dopest Christian music and new artists. ​​
We have real conversations with young adult believers, tackling life from a Christian perspective. We’re all about the new and innovative movements in the Christian world.
Our guests are spotlighted for being believers, taking different paths in their faith.
 
"How can a young man keep his way pure? By guarding it according to Your word" (Psalms 119:9).

Part of our mission is to provide a clean, fun, godly alternative for your ears. When I searched the Christian category in iTunes, 98 of 100 podcasts were sermons. The other two podcasts didn't represent the voice of young people. We saw filling that void as our responsibility. I love listening to sermons from churches and but sometimes,I want something light and fun without having to compromise. I find that when I want something fun there was nothing I felt that I could relate to. My options were to either listen to alternative podcasts and feel SUPER convicted, listen to a sermon, or get frustrated and just listen to nothing. I didn't like those options. We are providing a much needed source of clean entertainment through a medium  in which we hope will also enrich people's walks with Christ and start conversations about what that looks like.

When I decided to be a Christian I knew it would mean giving up my old lifestyle and most of my old forms of entertainment. At first that meant being at home without a lot of social options (Netflix with no chill) but soon I started to find these really cool creatives who were like minded and we made it our goal to find things to be part of without compromising our faith. These last few years have been amazing and I want to share that freedom with others. When we saw a void in entertainment we knew it was our job to try and fill it! Podcasts have become a go-to form of entertainment and we want to use that platform to share our testimonies and faith but also to have fun and have discussions that we don't see happening on other formats.
