“smart” girl ,

Praise from a Teenage Christian!!!!

This is genuinely the BEST thing i’ve ever found.

I’m 14 right now, but i’ve grown up as a gifted christian kid. which always made me feel so…..different. It also means i have big questions about faith, questions that certainly kids don’t want to talk about, and adults never provide a straight answer for. I feel really alone sometimes but i’m still curious and full of doubts.

I hide away in fictional analyses and true crime, until i found philosophical real-life christian girl talk.
I’m obsessed and you’re my absolute new favorite podcast.

please please please keep getting deep and staying silly!!

Loved the episode with Ginny Yurich from 1000 hours outside! 💜

Thoroughly enjoyed the discussion with Ginny Yurich regarding all things childhood, technology, and tools to optimize and revive our society’s family life!

Shift

I’ve loved your show since becoming saved two years ago. But recently I’ve noticed a shift in the content you’re creating. Though I’m all for shaking up the room with Christian perspectives on biblical and worldly concepts it seems you’ve lost sight of what made this a great podcast. Now with having a atheist on a Christian podcast it just sends the wrong message to those who are either discovering the faith or babes in the faith.. Wishing you well!
