The Historical Swedenborg

I very much like the OTLE podcasts. Chelsea has a great voice that tickles my ear and Curtis - I love his sarcasm! Of course, Dr. Rose puts it all together for everyone 🥳. I like the historical perspective that you share and can you please tell us Swedenborg’s age when you are giving dates?
Considering myself the resident Buddhist, I have been studying Swedenborg for about five years and enjoy juxtaposing Buddhism and Swedenborgianism (Got a love those isms). It’s exciting in that I very often find more similarities than differences. Thanks and keep up the excellent podcasts!

No help with system problems!! ,
