I been listening for 5 years…
And I used to be an unapologetic banter-lover. I’m slowly being driven into the anti-banter camp. Good banter is lighthearted, fraternal, and NOT TOO LONG. It doesn’t wander endlessly. If it’s going to start dragging out so long that there’s only half an episode of content, I can jump ship for a podcast that’s not quite as self-indulgent. I’m sticking around ‘cause I’ve faith in y’all. You can do better, we’ve all heard you do so. Thanks for everything you’ve taught me over the years, and you’re in my prayers.
Start at the beginning, drop after 2021
I’ve been listening to this podcast for at least 6 or 7 years. I took a break in 2020 to spend my time with the Bible in a Year from Ascension Media. The show has gone down an esoteric rabbit hole in the last year. The most recent podcast on “the liturgical ideal” is the best example of why so many people find our faith to be off-putting, irrelevant, and judgmental. I don’t even think the hosts or the guest speaker on this podcast even care - in fact, I think they’re quite proud of it.
I forgot that I had left and review of this podcast many years ago. I’m leaving it below to demonstrate that I was once a true fan.
PREVIOUS REVIEW: I've been listening to these priests from the "Catholic Stuff You Should Know" podcast for about a year. I've learned so much - spiritually and intellectually. These guys are approachable and hilarious. I definitely recommend them.
