Roo & the Preacher Dad

A pre-teen PK (pastor's kid) and her dad share conversations and music

About the show

A preteen and her preacher dad talk about big stuff and the little things that matter. When a pastor parent asks his PK (“pastor’s kid”) for her take on culture and current events; social issues and relationships; life in school, church and the world; and what faith has to do with it all, the results are funny and insightful, sometimes troubling, definitely peculiar, and always sacred. Roo and the Preacher Dad invite you to hear their unique conversations and the occasional music they write and play together.
