Can’t stop talking

Honestly, I talk so much about Eric’s podcasts ( both radio and SOC) that I’m probably driving people crazy. He has the most interesting guests with compelling stories. These people are from so many different walks of life. I particularly like when Eric is asking them questions (like his radio programs). Many of these stories reflect the grace and love of Jesus Christ. I love to share highlights with others. Jesus changes lives. Thank you, Eric!

I wish he would listen to his own guests...

Frustrated sometimes by EM’s constant desire to insert quips and irrelevant irony. Just listen to the guests so that we can too?

Rationality in NYC?!

It’s hard to imagine that such wisdom is being promoted in NYC of all places. I commend Eric for what he’s doing, and hope to join the next event that is held in the Big Apple.

Also, his openings are hilarious!
