Best Christian Music Podcast
Wow what an amazing podcast. Has introduced me to new music that I love! This is not a biased review and I am in no way under the imperious curse 😉 #blessed
Best in the west.
I really like this podcast, not just because I'm the host but because I'm friends with the other host. I loved the metal and hiphop episodes and cannot wait to listen to the electronic dance music curated episode. Keep up the good work Chris and I.
Thanks for the entertainment at work guys, love the music and chats, keep it going!
