So interesting

Just started from the beginning. Great for someone as ignorant about philosophy as myself.

Excellent, thought provoking.

Brilliant use of the format. Accessible to anyone with an enquiring mind. Seems to be tailing of a bit in terms of podcasts produced but hopefully they’ll keep at it.

Blue church theology

Orthodox blue church theology. Borderline insane. So stupid only an intellectual could believe it. Avoid!
