Fantastic for new Christians and also old timers!

This is a wonderful podcast for anyone just starting out as a believer. Go right back to season 1 and listen to all of it! I’ve found incredibly encouraging too and I’ve been a Christian for 20+ yrs. Thank you Adam and Leah!

Helpful and entertaining!

This podcast is a real delight. Exploring the key tenets of the Christian faith and some of the joys and challenges of following Jesus, Leah and Adam gently probe both the topic and their guests to unearth wisdom and wit in good measure.

Helpful to those exploring the Christian faith, those who are new believers and those who have been walking with Jesus for years, this is one of those pods you can stick on when you need encouraging, when you need feeding or when you just need to join in with their infectious laughter!

Very much looking forward to season 5.
