watch out

Parental Advisory: excellent, sharp podcast that may hurt it’s so good.

Courageous and Competent

The hosts are appreciative of hip hop culture yet don’t worship it. They are also critical but not condemning and self-righteous. Most importantly, they are knowledgable without being know it alls. Because of this balance, I am a big fan of the podcast and their courage to tackle a cultural no-fly zone. I highly recommend it!

Knowledgeable and insightful

Cray and Sam carefully maintain the balance between fandom and objective Christian response to a spectrum of hip hop recordings. This is the sort of Christian podcast that help propel the spiritual conversation into new pop culture circles.
