    A Sickness in the Air

    A Sickness in the Air

    In this week's Culture Translator, we only talk about one thing.
    I am so tired of waiting,
    Aren't you,
    for the world to become good
    and beautiful and kind?

    Let us take a knife
    and cut the world in two—
    and see what worms are eating
    at the rind.

    - Langston Hughes

Parents Need to Know!

I am overwhelmed with things to do and this podcast helps me feel better about my parenting because I can listen as I go! It has accurate, current topics our kids are faced with and it uses a biblical lens to view our culture and kids, so that we can be all that we were intended to be as parents-in-the-know that want to guard against the dangers this world pushes on us every day. I love it! Thank you Axis!

Good Content, But Needs a New Host

Really great content, but the male host speaks in a VERY unnatural way. He sounds like a robot set to “nerdy voice” mode. In addition, his nasal congestion is too much to bear. This is a great podcast, but desperately needs a different host.

We love the Culture Translator

Having the option to listen to the culture translator, in addition to, or instead of reading the email, is nice to have!
