Treasure trove

A wonderful treasure trove of wisdom and insight. I enjoy the way Dr. Labberton begins by asking his guests how their story ties in with the topic under discussion, and also how often his guests note that he has asked the perfect question or sometimes rephrased what they said in a way that clearly expresses their thoughts. With great intro and ending music—who are the musicians, by the way?

Faith and Justice

Conversing is my favorite podcast. The content has broadened my faith and my understanding of how faith intersects with the pressing social issues of our day. I’ve been challenged to think more holistically about various issues and consider them from divergent perspectives. Dr. Labberton asks insightful questions that facilitate meaningful conversation. I appreciate the broad spectrum of guests that he hosts on the podcast.
