Helpful

I really enjoy listening to the different opinions and voices in the pod. Matt, Jamal, and Keith have a good energy and I enjoy the HOTW picks. It’s so encouraging to see really smart people casually talk about big topics.
So often we can’t even bring subjects up with our “churched” communities - this is truly a happy hour for us heretics.
I really would love to see the audio quality itself a little higher (I’m a bit hard of hearing) but it’s not enough to keep me away! ❤️

Joyful, Respectful, and Progressive

I've listened to a number of progressive-leaning podcasts centered around Christianity, and this one has quickly become my favorite! There are two things that I think set it apart from the crowd. First, the hosts seem genuinely happy to be doing what they are doing - their tone is joyful rather than cynical. Specific ideas aside, they seem to have experienced something real and meaningful, and to know that they have experienced it. Second, they all seem to be well-read in classical Christian theology, and even after deconstructing from evangelicalism they maintain a respectful stance towards the overall Christian tradition. This is very refreshing to me - I have been disheartened to see many who reject Christianity in whole when the thing they really have a problem with is just evangelicalism (though I understand that this is what some people need to do). This podcast gives me hope that there is a path forward for those who are deconstructing but who also love the tradition as much as I do.

Four stars could be five

Does one host eat during the podcast? Because when interviews happen it sounds like there are all kinds of weird sounds that sound like munching or even animal balloon making? I just turned off another episode because of it. You couldn’t even hear the guest speaking over the sounds.

Other episodes are great.
