Aaron Gorner is a research assistant for Dr Kristian Heal, helping out with the Abide Podcast. He is currently a student at Brigham Young University, studying Ancient Near Eastern Studies with Hebrew emphasis. Originally from Canada, he enjoys the milder temperatures here in Provo, but sometimes misses the maple scent that fills that Canadian air. He is fascinated by foreign languages, literature, and history in general, and hopes one day to live the academic dream.
