Excited for more episodes!
Vintage Saints and Sinners is both informative and accessible. It helps me to interact with and explore what it means to incorporate Christianity into your daily life. Looking forward to more episodes!
totally unrelated to the soap opera. i am very disappointed.
as an avid podcast listener, I can firmly say that even with just two episodes available currently the Vintage Saints and Sinners Podcast is one of my favorites!
Karen, whose warmth and openness pair so well with her intellect, creates a welcoming listening environment to learn more about some incredibly interesting saints, and sinners!
I also applaud the sound mixing and production! An overall great listen!!!
