Best philosophy of religion podcast from the perspective of naturalists!

Significant Drop in Quality

My rating barely ekes into 3-star territory because of the earlier episodes with Justin Schieber, who listeners of Reasonable Doubts will know for his respectful, but extraordinarily thorough debating style. Unfortunately, since he has disappeared from the show, the remaining co-hosts, Ben Watkins, Ben Bavar, and John Lopilato have lead the show into an astounding decline in quality. Their chemistry is awkward and frequently flailing. The way they question their guests and pose counter-arguments is frustrating, both because questions and objections frequently seem off-the-cuff, insufficiently probing, and weak. I find myself sighing with exasperation as they limply lob softball questions and lame objections at guests who are saying outlandish things (the Zach Christ interview is a recent example, but far from the only one). The schedule is also highly erratic, with months going by between new episodes. And frankly, because of the quality issues, I find myself dreading listening to new episodes (which is why I will be unsubscribing: I don’t find the podcast rewarding enough to continue listening to). All in all, I like the spirit of the endeavor, what they tried to do, much more than the actual results.
