An ad promoting a trip to Glacier National Park will release “Brother Molly,” a multi-episode, narrative podcast on March 24.

Narrated by Erica Whitaker, pastor of Buechel Park Baptist Church in Louisville, Kentucky, the podcast explores the life and work of Molly T. Marshall and includes interviews with Marshall, as well as friends and colleagues.

A roughly three-minute preview is now available at

Born into a legacy of Baptist preachers on the frontier, Marshall blazed her own trail across the 20th and 21st centuries.

She forged a path for future generations of female ministers through her brilliance, wit, courage and determination to follow God’s call on her life.

Marshall was named president of Central Baptist Theological Seminary in Shawnee, Kansas, in 2004. She announced last year she would be retiring at the end of the 2019-20 academic year.

The six-episode series will be available to stream later this month via, as well as via popular podcasting platforms, such as Apple / iTunes and Spotify.

Among the dozens of interviewees featured on the podcast are:

  • Babs Baugh, longtime friend and fellow Baptist
  • Pam Durso, executive director of Baptist Women in Ministry and the new president of Central Seminary beginning in June
  • David Goatley, research professor of theology and black church studies and director of the Office of Black Church Studies at Duke Divinity School
  • Mark Medley, Marshall’s former doctoral student at Southern and now professor of theology at Baptist Seminary of Kentucky
  • Eileen Campbell-Reed, coordinator for mentoring, coaching and internships at Central Seminary, and visiting associate professor at Union Theological Seminary
  • Helen Moore Montgomery, whose friendship with Marshall began at Oklahoma Baptist University in the late 1960s
  • Abbot Benedict T. Neenan, OSB, of Conception Abbey
