Always interesting and provocative

I have been listening to this Podcast since it’s start and it is - and always has been! - one of my favourites. The ‘words’ are accessible without being trivial or patronising (huzzah!), and Cooper and Cary are actually quite funny too. They’ve cut out a lovely little niche for themselves in the genre.

Wonderfully thoughtful and witty Christian conversation

These guys are great. They are just very good conversationalists. And very thoughtful about the intersection between faith and culture. And occasionally laugh out loud funny. Well worth subscribing and well worth catching up on the extensive library.
