One of My Favorite Podcasts

I’ve been a faithful listener since the beginning, and this has nestled its way into my heart over the years. All of the audio uncles are fantastic, but I do have a favorite (I’m looking at you Uncle Mark). The show is always full of unusual tidbits of information and witty banter that brighten up my day. I do miss the old interstitial booms, but only because they signaled the show wasn’t over yet, just moving to a new segment. Thank you, uncles, for being so awesome, and for filling the place lacking from real ones.

Hilarious and Informative Show

Great, humorous perspectives on the various religious topics. They bring the concepts and stories down to reality with a delicious topping of snark. Enjoying my way through the back catalog.

Peter in Hawaii ,

Five stars! Of course.

Six stars, in fact, ever since the episode in which the interstitial stinger stopped jolting me from sleep. Good call, Uncles.
