Editor’s Note:  It was a blasty-blast(I’ve always wanted to say that) to talk to Christian rock artist Jodi Essex on the Madness To Creation Podcast.  We get into a very deep meaningful discussion about Christianity, how some famous Christian artists are deconstructing their faith, her single for “Offend”, and my favorite song of hers “What Is Your Truth?” .  As a side note, we are anticipating having Jodi Essex on as a contributor or a semi-regular co-host, whenever her schedule allows it.  Her album “Irreverent” is out now and fans can stream it on her Spotify.  Fans can check out Jodi Essex on Facebook, Instagram, and her official website.
