Soul deep conversations

Each time I listen I am encouraged by the unhurried and deep conversation Nathan has with his guests. Excellent podcast. Thank you!

What’s a better word for “Great!”

It’s hard to think of a good enough, high-praise word to title this review! I was so glad to find this podcast in 2021. I went back and listened to older ones as well.

Nathan’s soothing voice, fantastic topic questions, and as another reviewer said, his style of getting out of the way and letting the guest talk- combine to make a rich and worthwhile (!) experience for us.

In pandemic world which has spiraled into so many other heartbreaking issues and events, a visit w/ Nathan (and his guests) really is that calm and quiet yet very thoughtful place to park oneself for a half hour or so.

I’ll also add that this podcast is a great introduction into a more contemplative faith life, if you’re interested.

Nathan, my only complaint is that the podcasts are not being released as often.
:(Please know that although you’ve been doing this podcast work for a long time, others of us are STILL most appreciative and grateful for finding our way to you, even more recently. (IE please don’t quit!!!!!)
