Matthew D Wilson ,

I don't write a lot of reviews, but ...

I very much enjoy this podcast. I'm probably a fairly unusual listener, being an atheist and all, but I do find the history and influence of christianity to be an interesting subject. I like the presenter's style - informal but engaging. I also like his charming english accent :-)
