Please oh please let there be more seasons

This podcast is just fantastic. Each episode contains such a wealth of wisdom, insight, humor, and hate reading. I binged the whole season in like 2 days. Janice and her guests just expose this dumb theology for what it is and they unearthed things for me that I had never thought of before. I had never actually read this book, but each chapter and episode revealed that this book infiltrated the systems I came out of, and the quite honestly this dumb theology had me trapped for a long time. Hearing it debunked was healing and somehow fun at the same time. 10 out of 10 would recommend.

Good podcast

This is one of the podcasts I look forward to every week. It’s so funny and triggering at the same time (Janice isn’t triggering, JB - the subject being criticized and Christianity is triggering haha).

I keep coming back!

...even though it’s so triggering! I grew up being “encouraged” into submission to local church authority by JBs books and I’m finding a lot of healing through this podcast. The host and guests are real, raw and funny.
