Great Podcast for the Learning of Anglican Tradition

I am a member of The Episcopal Church and while there is a sad division between us and the ACNA, I can say the depth of this podcast is amazing! It covers the history of the Church and clearly answers questions that many people would have. A great podcast for Church nerds (like me) and new Episcopalians/Anglicans.

I recommend to friends all the time!

I love this podcast—it has been very helpful for me as someone who did not grow up in the Anglican tradition. It has also taught me so much that some of my friends who did grow up in the ACNA didn’t know either! I am always recommending the whole podcast and also individual episodes to my friends and family. Thank you so much!

Rich content!

This podcast has been a wonderful help for me to understand the Anglican Tradition! I would recommend this to every Anglican and anyone interested in understanding the basics of the church.
