C.P.Perscpective ,

Awesome Podcast!

I really enjoy listening to the Christian Geek Central podcast and YouTube channel. Great info. and discussion.

Ubergopher ,

Fantastic podcast!

This is a fantastic podcast. Paeter does an excellent job giving well thought out reviews that I usually agree with, and the occasional phoned in review which matches phoned in movies. (Resident Evil movie I'm looking at you)

The In Search of Truth segment is a well done and organized look at Scripture and does an exellent job with his explanation and stripping away the fancy-theology talk without removing the meaning or importance that is in the fancy-theoloy talk.

Nathan J. Norman ,

Simply the Best Podcast Available

I've been listening to this podcast for years. It never fails to entertain, inform and challenge. The show is excellent, and somehow continues to improve upon its own excellence over time.
I listen to many podcasts, but this one is the one I simply will never skip over.

It's "must-listen" podcasting!
