Love mostly everything!

Love this podcast! I love all the guests they have, I love the move to co-hosts in season two (though I really miss Sarah Eyring), love the insights and the extra knowledge brought by everyone participating. I really think this podcast does a great job of making this extra knowledge and insight accessible to regular people. The only thing that bothers me a little (and the First Vision podcast does this, too), is the frequency with which music is used to transition. It wasn’t always like that (I’m about five episodes into season two, so I’m not sure if it continues), but I think it is just wonderful to hear everyone talk and don’t think the music is needed quite so often.

Uplifting and Engaging

If you are studying Church History especially by reading Saints and you want to go a layer deeper, this podcast offers an easy and extremely accesible means to do just that. Saints was written to appeal to as many people as possible and so if you find yourself wanting to the next level of depth, this is a good place to start.
