Keep it up!

Been listening to these for a number of years now, very helpful.

Just finished “Considering a Career during COVID-19.” Great topic, I appreciated the back-and-forth, occasionally picking daisies. Felt like sitting in a room with 2 professors who were happy to answer real questions.

Loving conversation that’s inclusive and exclusive

Exciting topics suitable for both young and matured audience as well as seekers and believers. Thank you so much.

Pastor in Reno ,

Poor recording quality

The quality of the discussions is excellent. However, the quality of the audio is consistently poor.
