A Little Singularly Focused
I have deep respect for Walt (as I have read many of his books on youth culture and ministry). And, I am deeply grateful to hear a group of people attempt to "think Christianly" about various things in modern culture. There are so many topics these guys cover that are critical elements for an adult working with students. Often, the podcast devolves into a bemoaning of numerous fears of technology. To be fair, many of these are warranted. Overall, this is a great resource to understand an evagelical perspective on various current teenage events.
Thank you so much for providing this. Every parent, youth worker, and teacher must listen and I recommend going back to the beginning to catch every single episode. I cannot recommend this podcast and content enough!!!!!
I greatly appreciate Walt and Jason and their desire to think biblically and Christian-ly on how we can interpret and engage youth culture. Important topics, great guests, and fun along the way. Keep up the quality stuff!
