Every Monday night at 8 p.m. ET, in a small broadcast studio just north of Philadelphia, 31-year-old Curtis Childs talks to hundreds of people of various faiths and backgrounds from all over the world about how to unite in a world caught up in political, religious, and economic turmoil. The hour-long web show called Swedenborg and Life—which will broadcast its 100th episode on May 9th—is inspired by the work of eighteenth-century spiritual explorer, philosopher, and writer Emanuel Swedenborg. Each week, Curtis guides YouTube viewers through a different facet of Swedenborg’s interfaith theology in an effort to explore the spiritual nature of everything in life.

Curtis, who has a down-to-earth approach to talking about the complex and taboo topics that exist within faith and spirituality, particularly with Gen Xers and Millennials, is seen as a local celebrity in his suburban Philadelphia community. His passion and talent is reaching people in countries throughout the world as part of the Swedenborg Foundation, boosted by the popularity of the offTheLeftEye YouTube channel and his appearances on international radio shows, podcasts, and other YouTube channels.
