Intelligent discussions

Often very intelligent discussions but could be better organized and less wordy.

Great speakers. Over talkative host.

Enjoy the breadth of speakers, but really wish the host would let the speakers articulate themselves and just stop talking so much.

Political Apocalypticism

I really enjoyed the discussion of the Pauline church, but felt like you missed an opportunity to talk about apocalypticism on the contemporary far right. Every single parallel you pointed out is present in a very clear form among the conservative movement, and right-wing apocalypticism is arguably a more significant political question than left-wing apocalypticism, given that the former holds considerably more power in America. Instead you talked about Bernie Bros for two hours, which is fine. It was a very good discussion, but could have benefited from some balance.
