Great needed podcast for anyone on the Christian/Catholic spectrum

I think this podcast needs a bit more production values in its opening minutes (like, trúncate sound bites at the episode’s beginning); but I’m grateful for this ‘cast. 👍🏼 it fills a MUCH-needed niche. I listened to an environment episode and I appreciate its gentle course correction as to how we Christians should practice Jesús’s activities in the world we live in. As the Quaker speaker said “the other priorities in...justice don’t work if we can’t breathe”; the environment we choose to live and make truly affects our basic needs for clean air and healthy food. I don’t know many other Podcasts that lie at the intersection of Progressive, of Christian, of ecumenism, and dialogue. I appreciate this!!
