In this podcast, Jason is hanging out with Jeremy Willet of the band Willet. They talk about their new EP, "Love on the Outside" (produced by Aaron Gillespie) and you'll hear the story behind a couple of the songs, "You Are Not Just Holy" & "Disaster," inspired by recent events in Africa & Haiti, respectively.

Later in the podcast, Jeremy talks about The Hunger Strike, a ministry founded by the band and an official partner of Christian relief and development organization, Food for the Hungry. The Hunger Strike exists to bring the love of Jesus Christ to those living in domestic and international poverty through advocacy, community development, short and long-term missionary support, youth programs, pastoral training, evangelism, and disaster relief. Be encouraged by Jeremy's passion to not only use our voices to worship God, but also our hands & feet.

"I was struggling with the fact that I had to go back on tour and I had to "lead worship" and I didn't see how we were really worshipping God if we were just singing about how great He was, but weren't actually responding to the needs that He asked us to respond to."
