Entertaining and thoughtful

I frequently find myself laughing as I listen to Dave and William‘s banter together. I also find myself thinking to myself “huh, that’s a good thought” a lot as well. Check it out!

Excellent to share with friends

These guys do such a good job of broaching conversations that are at once light-hearted enough to share easily, and weighty enough to be worth sharing. I highly recommend this as a conversation starter with friends of various faiths, backgrounds, and persuasions.
