Wonderful

I really love your podcast, it is short and somewhat quirky. And it is nice to hear from Catholics in England. ( I am always amazed to be reminded that they do exist).
Thank you for producing this. Keep the faith!

Insulting and uninformed.

I had to stop listing to the Salafi Muslim episode because of the superior tone of the presenters and the lack of information and context of their supposed “researcher’s” book. If you want to know why people are converting to Islam, go ask a Muslim. Go to the source. And put things in their proper context. As for the “rules” to using the bathroom—these are guidelines suggested by our prophet, peace be upon him, and are not obligatory but rather, recommended. I find it interesting the presenter focused on not talking while in the restroom but failed to mention our required practice of using water to wash up the private after relieving ones self, as this is a very hygienic and intelligent practice of the Muslims and ahead of its time. I can’t take a podcast such as this seriously if they can’t be bothered to fact check and present in an unbiased and intelligent manner.
