So glad I found you

4th season I was so confused. It was not easy to find you because of your name but thrilled I did. I thought the 1st episode was like 20 years into the future not only 4 years. Thank you so much for your deep dives. My brain hurt trying to figure everything out and you definitely made my viewing much more enjoyable. Thank you

Favorite thing to listen to while doing dishes and sketching

Currently my favorite podcast. I love all of your guy’s and gal’s commentary. It’s a rare thing for there to be a podcast with hosts that unashamedly speak about and compare things with the Bible. As a Christian myself it’s a very comforting and relatable thing to hear you guys reference a verse or story in the Bible that matches almost perfectly with the themes of AOT. A lot of people may complain and call it Bible thumping but it’s not any better than a podcast that is run by an agnostic or atheistic person translating the story through their views and beliefs. Honestly there are more podcasts like that than ones like this. It’s refreshing and like I said before, rare. Keep it up I love you guys. And when the AOT is officially ended, I would still love to hear you guys maybe do some character centric episodes. Lots of love and God bless.

Awesome Podcast!

If I could give this podcast more stars, I definitely would. I love the commentary. I love the personalities. I love that you guys unashamedly filter everything through your Biblical worldview. Thanks guys for providing a space to talk about this great show! Hope this helps.
