Has been very informative
This has been a great podcast, and I look forward to new episodes. They cover a range of scholarly articles, even if they don’t agree with the points the authors are making. It seems to be a fair balance of scholarship without pushing a particular set of views or beliefs, which is great for learning.
NT Review is a five star podcast
Your podcast is paradise for NT geeks, like myself! You two help scale back some of the gate keeping that occurs in academia. One suggestion: could you possibly do an episode on some of Dale Allison’s scholarship? Keep those excellent episodes coming!
You each need to do an episode on your dissertations, once completed. Love the podcasts.
