Fantastic

The Y2AM crew, specifically Christian Gonzalez, delivers a dynamic, fast-paced podcast that cuts straight to the blind spots that we “Christians” so often ignore. He gently read adjusts our focus so that our relationships can be healthy and meaningful, and so can the rest of our lives.

Really relevant stuff!

I have sincerely enjoyed and learned a great deal from every episode of The Trench. All of his topics and observations are so relatable! He strikes just the right balance between being humorous and irreverent and yet remaining grounded in the faith.

really helpful

I’m so thankful to have found these podcasts because they really help me understand more about orthodoxy as well as the protestant faith I was raised in. I might be a little older and out of the intended age group but I have still learned a lot and I want to make all my friends listen to them haha.
