Customer Reviews

A broadly good podcast

On balance, a good podcast offering insight into a wide variety of questions. Liberal minded Catholics and Anglicans will feel especially welcome here. Evangelicals, Presbyterians, bible-based Anglicans, and conservative Catholics will feel less welcome.

The male host does come across as immensely self righteous but the female host, guests, general production are great.

Horrifically biased

The episode on homosexual marriage was repulsive. Absolutely no conservative, traditionalist voice to enunciate the very sensible proposition that homosexual couples should not marry.

Despicable podcast.

Thought-provoking and intelligent conversation

Great choice of topics that many wouldn't dare to touch, I could listen to an hour long versions of it :)
