Most Enjoyable

Great podcast! Interesting topics. I do however find the music background distracting and would enjoy it more of the music wasn’t playing

Enough of the Saints!

I like this podcast. Paul delivers his debunks with warmth and a down-to-earth tone. He’s got a sense of humor and he’s open minded. I have 2 complaints, however. There is way too much time spent with Catholicism - popes, and Saints. Enough! Also, scrolling through the available episodes, so many are throwbacks and flashbacks - repeats. I would prefer new material. All in all, good show!
