New listener; Big fan

I listened to the most recent episode, which was a weird one to start with because it talked all about a transition to a new format. But I loved the energy and banter between the guests. And as a big fantasy book fan, I listened to the LOTR episode, and it was great. Would love to nerd out with Matt over fantasy books. Anyway, y’all should listen.

The world needs more of this.

This podcast and the people hosting it have been such a critical part of my journey over he past few years. So many new thoughts and ideas, and the encouragement to feel free to think them! And diverse thoughts as well. It was actually a couple months of listening before I realized that they don’t actually agree on everything. I didn’t notice because they weren’t fighting about it! 🤣 So very refreshing.

No matter where you are on your faith journey, or even if you don’t really have one, there’s something interesting and thought-provoking for you here. Cheers!
