Honest, open, big-hearted conversations with a twist.

Welcome to Stories from the Wayside

This podcast is a tribute to love and belonging, loneliness and loss, and the rich kaleidoscope of chaos that comes when life is lived from the gutter up.  

Join CEO and Pastor of Wayside Chapel, Rev Jon Owen, as he invites friends from the Wayside for honest, big-hearted conversations about the crisis of disconnection in these overwhelming times.

Each episode comes with a unique twist. Instead of revealing our guest’s name upfront, we immerse you directly into their stories. You’ll be dropped into an authentic dialogue where they open up about their their life journey, the challenges of loneliness, and the experiences that have shaped their identity and choices. Through these shared stories, we discover our common humanity, a profound connection that unites us all.
