Amybucky ,

Very Entertaining!

I discovered this podcast through listening to The Holy Post Podcast also featuring Skye. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve laughed out loud while I’m driving and listening to this group of guys banter. Even if I haven’t seen the movies they discuss, I still listen in because it’s so much fun. It’s like hanging out with a group of friends exchanging lots of witty dialogue with some insightful spiritual/meaningful moments sprinkled in. Great podcast for a commute.
