Too Funny and Too True

You guys keep me laughing even when talking about the most serious topics of life, death, faith, and hope. No wonder most people don’t know what to do with you: Pastors aren’t supposed to have a sense of humor ;)

Keep up the good work

Hi Ringside! You guys host a pretty cool podcast. I like listening to ringside when I am doing running with couch to 10K. What’s up with the bell though? Your ringside bell usually messes up my jogging intervals. Although you are all messing me up physically, I am hoping that it’s giving me better results theologically. :-) keep up the good work.

Love you guys!!

My husband and I totally enjoy listening to you all and laugh along with your real life answers and thoughts to topics and discussions! So glad to have found you and appreciate all that each of you bring to the show!
