Jacob Lee, director of the Icon New Media Network, does not receive any pay for his efforts with the network. He earns his living as a web designer with Exist Designs. In recent months, he has grown increasingly busy with his web design work, leaving him little time for his work with Icon. In particular, he has not been able to maintain the once-a-week pace that he set for his excellent Journeys to Orthodoxy podcast, which is featured both on the Icon website as well as on the Orthodox Christian Network.
Noticing this, and hating to see the reduced frequency of the podcast, a few months ago I called Jacob and offered to help him with Journeys by becoming an occasional guest host. He eagerly accepted my offer, and before long I started recording interviews with various converts to Orthodoxy who live here in Houston. My first such interview has just come out. The interview is with Michael and Jessica Fulton, a delightful young couple who attend my parish, St. Joseph's. They will be moving to the Boston area this August, where Michael will begin studies at Holy Cross Orthodox Seminary. I encourage you to listen to the interview. You may find it here.
