I haven't listened through all the episodes, but what I see thus far looks great! Of course, I suggest everyone seek Christ and use discernment and discretion when consuming
any sort of content. This show looks fun thus far!
A simple but thought-provoking podcast
A buddy of mine told me about this podcast so I gave it a shot. It am pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoy listening to religion, psychology, and entertainment.
