Corey Nathan – Interfaith Program
Engaged Citizen, Creative Businessman, Executive Producer, Host
Corey Nathan started out as a stockbroker by day while studying at a theatre conservatory at night. Since then, he’s been an entrepreneur with one foot in business and one foot in creative pursuits having built such endeavors as a niche executive search firm; a theatre and film ensemble; a residential and commercial service company; a 501c3 to help folks during the pandemic; and most recently a new media/content company.
Much of Corey’s current work is focused on collaborating with people across religious, political and social divides to help understand and repair some of our culture’s rancor. This springs from his personal background, having been raised in an observant Jewish household before becoming a Born-again Christian in his late 20s. This unique trajectory required engaging in fraught conversations about religion with his family as well as strained discussions in the church about politics. Over the last several years, a growing audience has been enjoying the engaging, provocative and fun conversations about these subjects on the podcast Corey hosts, Talkin’ Politics & Religion Without Killin’ Each Other.
Corey has been married to Lisa for over 25 years and has 3 kids, Savannah (22), Jackie-Boy (20) and Emerson (18) along with the family pooches, Bailey and Charles Mingus the 3rd. As for rumors of his exploits in the world of Texas Holdem Poker, we can neither confirm nor deny those reports.
