Fully engaging

This podcast has to be one of my top favorites of the many I've spent time listening to. Like Robert M. Price said in closing, "You're a great interviewer!"
The cover art, intro music and soundbite alone grants the listener the right mood and curiosity to engage in listening and is not left to be disappointed. Guests are kept on point with the subject at hand, as well as occasionally challenged to return to any unanswered questions, and done so respectfully and diplomatically. I would love to be a guest although I don't know how well equipped I could be in carrying through, but to be educated in the experience of listening at least is worth the time. Great show!

Best atheism/naturalism related podcast out there

It's a shame the show is over, but this podcast contains many fascinating episodes and some great discussion. Well worth listening to.

Excellent

A lot of really good and in depth interviews. I wish new episodes were coming out, but Luke (the host) is still doing a lot of really interesting things, so I'm not all that broken up about it.
