Worth listening!

Can you tell us what sources the Chesterton quotes come from?
Such a fun podcast. I love learning more about Chesterton, and you make it easy with this podcast.

Good Content Poor Sound

Love GKC and his contemporaries (Belloc, Knox, etc) so I’m glad the Chesterton Society is producing the regular podcast again. However, the sound quality is horrible. Sometimes you have to crank the volume up to a Spinal Tap 11 to hear the guest, while the host leans in too close to the microphone. Good topics and interesting guests, but awful recording.

Amateur is a lover

Gilbert Keith Chesterton and I love Nancy because, in part, her “production value” is less than what might be found elsewhere on the internet. She’s an amateur. But her love of Gilbert and Frances is patently obvious so I can’t not listen to every episode.
