An enjoyable listen!

I grew up an avid Adventures in Odyssey fan and had heard bits and pieces of Down Gilead Lane on the radio growing up, but never listened to the entire series. I always liked what I heard from DGL and recently bought the entire series and have begun listening through it for the first time. I am really enjoying the episodes, as well as listening to Return to Gilead as I finish each episode of DGL. Michael and Ryan’s discussions are always interesting, entertaining, and have great humor throughout. Return to Gilead has been a great companion as I listen through the series for the first time!

A Must-Listen for DGL Fans

Michael and Ryan are great hosts in any podcast. Hearing new fans enjoy Down Gilead Lane and discuss the greatness of the show is a joy to hear. The podcast also includes some very insightful interviews that make the podcast all the better. Thanks Michael and Ryan for helping revive the DGL fandom!
