Every episode a cracker!

I’ve been listening to this pair have words since they started (the podcast at least!) and in the last few months, every episode has been top notch (which I feel could be a James expression?)! As I’m listening, I think, “yes, I know what you mean” or “ I hadn't thought about it like that but it makes sense”, and want to make sure that others I know who listen (ok mainly husband) have listened to it because it’s just so good!
(I may have also raided show notes links for Christmas presents but don’t tell him!)

Funny and full of learning

Having been recommended this podcast by a friend I am now recommending it al round. A great opportunity to think through how Christianity has become that way it is and how it interacts with our modern society. Cooper and Cary are natural conversationists and it is a joy to listen in to their discussions.

Cracking!

Been listening for a year now and this podcast never fails to be interesting and funny. More than that, though, it’s culturally insightful and encourages me in figuring out engaging with the world around me as a Christian.
