UUUtah ,

Terrific Program!

David does a masterful job of hosting this podcast and the speakers and lecturers are superb. A real treasure for UU Pagans. My only complaint is that it isn't biweekly.

We should really get the word out...

Love it but...

I wish the sound quality were better. The music is too loud for the vocals. But other than that, love it!!

Morningdove3202 ,

Great resource

If you are interested in how UU values and Pagan spirituality combine, this is a great resource for you! If you are new to Pagan spiritualities, start with episode 16!
