Fantastic Podcast with Minimal Religion!

One of my all-time favorite podcasts. The host takes an important topic, discusses it plainly yet thoughtfully, and provides a great classic rock playlist to accompany his discourse. And all without preaching! If RL church were more like this, I'd be more religious. Top notch!!

Great classic rock on SoR Radio

If you enjoy classic rock, this church is for you! There’s no religion other than a passion for rock ‘n roll. This show is hosted on Spirit of Resistance (SoR) radio. Naturally, there will be some talk about how goes the resistance, so don’t whine if your reality is too fragile for a little reflection. After all, classic rock is all about questioning the establishment! Enjoy the great tunes and thoughtful commentary from the Rev.
