Edme ,

Wish they were longer

I really enjoy this podcast, I only wish they were long so that they could go way more into depth about the topics the cover.

As someone who wasn’t raised religious, I find this kind of stuff fascinating, and the hosts do a great job.

xoxo from the states (going through the backlog, and ages ago you said you wanted more reviews from your neighbors to the south so here’s one 😅)

Odonata28T ,

Great perspectives!

As someone who was raised secular, This podcast really gives great information about what it would be like to be raised in the Christian culture. The conversation is relaxed and fun. The two hosts – one who was raised secular and one who was raised in a Christian faith – do a great job discussing each week’s topic. I’ve binged the whole categlog.

NormPDX ,

Worth listening it just for prayer request time.

A very enjoyable conversation between two Canadian friends about various religions, sects, cults, etc. The episodes are concise covering the facts and interesting aspects of the topic. The highlight is prayer time at the end of the episode. Anyone who has spent time in a group prayer will have recognize strained attempt of dude’s trying to sound pious and spiritual while calling out “friends”.
