Great Perspectives, Edifying Discussions

I found this podcast after listening to Matt’s other podcast “Owl Post“and I’m so glad he let me here. It is so interesting and refreshing to step back and look at so many popular films through a Christian lens. It really helps me see all of thematic elements and characters that are Bible-inspired and how I can use those to have Gospel conversations with others. I couldn’t recommend this podcast more! Keep up the great work, friends!
