Relevant, entertaining, challenging, and informative.

Well done guys. Thank you for taking the time to do this show. This podcast comes at the right time, when we need less aggression, ignorance, and cowardice, and more informed, useful conversation. Now we need dozens, hundreds, or maybe thousands of efforts just like this! With a busy life, sometimes I find it difficult to keep up with current events, but by listening to this show for just an hour every so often, I cannot not only catch up on a few highlights, but have it all framed with in the context of why it should matter to a follower of Christ, all presented in a convenient, easy to follow format. Conversation rules! Great show and getting better all the time. Keep up the good work, Ryan and Phil.

A thoughtful viewpoint

I am, as the name implies, a member of the "nones" demographic and an occasional nye-athiest (married to a catholic) who has always had trouble understanding the "evangelical" perspective. I've always viewed it as a closer relative to dark age fanaticism than any modern political and social thought; a relic of a bygone era. Then, quite by accident a few months ago, I found myself listening to "Ryan and Phillip's Coversation Rules" and found not only thoughtful and insightful views that allowed me to peer into a viewpoint not as radically different from my own as I have oft anticipated but attitudes that are remarkable in their ability to not denigrate other beliefs and morals simply because they are not shared. They skillfully take events in the news, in their community, and in their lives and explain how their biblical view define both their impressions of the events and how they define responsible reactions to them. While I don't always share their outlook on said events or reactions, they are a gift to me in my understanding of the world in which we live and the people we share it with. It is too easy in this time of turmoil to give into the despair that I think Charlie Chaplin best described when he said: "Greed has poisoned men’s souls... We have developed speed, but we have shut ourselves in. Machinery that gives abundance has left us in want. Our knowledge has made us cynical. Our cleverness, hard and unkind." (Which if you have not heard Charlie Chaplin's Speech from "The Great Dictator" you should, I am a grown man in my thirties and find that everytime I listen to it I sob like a child). In this time of disquiet, voices like Ryan's and Phillip's are a balm for the soul and a light in the dark even for those who disagree with their theological or philiosophical views. Because, a least for me, they let me know I am not as estranged from my church-going fellow Americans as I once dreaded and maybe, just maybe, the world at large is not as malevolent as we all fear.
