The Molehill Podcast: Cinnamon (feat. Janna Barber & Jonathan Rogers)

Wherein Jonathan Rogers reads his poems “Two Villanelles,” Janna Barber reads her piece Cinnamon, and Drew Miller shares the fifth Word of Befuddlement: soggage.

First appearing in Volume 4 of The Molehill, Cinnamon is a memoir, which makes it extra special to hear Janna herself read it out loud. It’s the story of her very first therapy session and the winding road of healing that it set her upon. Janna invites us as fellow travelers to follow her into some of her most formative childhood memories and then back into the present day, witnessing the ever-evolving connections between her identity and her faith.

Words of Befuddlement

Words of Befuddlement is a special Molehill Podcast segment inspired by games like Dictionary and Balderdash. In fact, it’s no different, except that the word in question doesn’t exist anywhere other than in the notorious mind of Pete Peterson (so don’t go looking for it in a dictionary).

Each week, Drew Miller (host of The Molehill Podcast) will share a new Word of Befuddlement and ask you to send in your very own definition to The following week, he will read some of the definitions he received and reveal the “correct” definition as determined by Pete.

The fifth Word of Befuddlement, shared in today’s episode, is the noun “soggage.” You can send in your very own definition of “soggage” to Drew, and he might just read it on next week’s show. And who knows? You may even guess correctly.
