Interesting

I’ve been reading about early Christianity, which obviously leads to the papacy and early church. This is an informative podcast and often times amusing.

Fascinating, efficient, learned

This has become my very favorite podcast. I love this topic and Steve’s delivery is perfect: a well organized and direct lecture with cute and funny turns of phrase and observations thrown in. He doesn’t presume that you already know things. Yay, Steve.

Learned Discussion

Quite insightful and informative analysis of the Papacy, but includes so much detail and information that leaves the listener yearning and wanting more. Steve sticks with the program and the naysayers (see some of the negative reviews) are either lost in the forest or looking up the wrong tree…can I get an Amen!?
