Excellent, but please avoid telling the listener what to think

In each of the three seasons, Mr. Jenks has done an excellent job bringing important and substantial events to light. However, I would respectfully encourage him to avoid the occasional connecting narratives between his evidentiary submissions which tell the listener what they should think about what has been presented. Doing so only invites criticisms of bias or lack of journalistic impartiality.

Mind blowing

Really enlightened by all the horrifying information. Everyone should be aware of the blatant hypocrisy and shameful tactics of the Falwell family.

Needs more balance.

I enjoyed the investigation portion of the Falwell podcast but they fall prey to using only critics from the left. A professor at Dartmouth is not unbiased. Grouping all evangelicals with southern segregationist is not far. There are lots of evangelicals in the north that really joined the political movement on the abortion issue and not on race. My wife and I are in that group. Also I find it disingenuous to have someone object to the $1 billion endowment when Harvard has $40 billion, Yale has $30 billion and Stanford has $27 billion. All are non profits and each had their issues. Ask the Asian students that sued Harvard.
