Really like the vibe. Need more episodes soon!
Hugely entertaining and informative, with relevant and timely topics, presented in an informal and humorous manner. The banter and chemistry between the Cult Spark team members makes the hour-long episodes seem way too short!
Good Guys with Interesting Perspective.
Fun podcast, specifically due to the dynamics between the guys. Bob does a good job holding court, no easy feat when the unpredictable Stew starts pontificating on Pacific Rim being "this generation's Star Wars." If that's not entertaining to you, what is? Terrance adds a cool vibe when he's there, and the whole mix makes for an enjoyable listen. And Stew. Stew is the cuddly mascot you can't get mad at because he's just so darn nice.
