I’m so happy to see another episode!!

The BYP episodes are awesome. He has a unique way of explaining his point that is informative, while not coming off as arrogant, or condescending. The short episodes make them easy to consume all at once, and easy to listen over and over. His background as a former apologist and former atheist give him a unique point of view. I especially like to hear the BYP talk about his journey from atheism into spirituality. 5 stars from me.

Been almost 2 months

Are we gonna get updates to the show? I know they are on YouTube but that isn’t a way for me to listen while I’m at work which is where I listen to podcast.

Other than that great podcast, love the BYP and his energy and knowledge.

He sounds unstable

His heavy breathing and erratic speech patterns are disturbing. He sounds like a lunatic.
