Funny, Informative, and irreverent.

This show has it all, if by “all” you mean the three qualities in my title. Personally, those are all that I need for this to be one of the podcasts I listen to (ir)religiously. Even the pitches for sponsors are genuinely clever and entertaining. Help for the recently de-churched but also those like me who already know how not to be a believer.

Hilarious and enlightening

I’ve been listening to these guys for a few months now and each episode is entertaining. Growing up in the Bible Belt, I know all too well about much of the topics discussed on the podcast. I’ve only been completely out of faith for a few years, and it’s hard to unlearn certain things, but if you just recently freed yourself from religion, please listen to these fellas. It’s both funny and informative. Learning about other religions and exhuming their dead gods just to re-bury them is always a blast. I’ve been going in chronological order and listening to newer episodes as they release, so I can confirm that each episode is consistently good. Mark, Dan, Doug, if you guys read this: thanks for being such cool audio uncles!
