kyleesi ,

This show is fantastic!!!!

As a heathen who went to Catholic school, I'm obsessed with this podcast

Danil1989 ,

Great humor and info.

I enjoy the conversation as well as the insight into Catholicism. I’m only 8 episodes in but I hope that more keep coming.

NDE001 ,

Great introduction to Christianity

...from an Anglican and Roman Catholic perspective, with nods to other Christian traditions and plenty of humor.
