Secular Humanist Sanctuary
Drawn in by the roster of guests so far, I just started listening and Dan's show is GREAT! I always enjoy Dan's guest appearances on other shows and am so glad he finally got his own show to do his own way. Idk if Sean is a permanent co-host but the chemistry and dynamic they share is inviting and fun. Keep up the good work guys!
Smart conversations with excellent guests.
I'm subscribed—and look forward to new shows each week.
Insightful show for a variety of topics
I've been a fan of Dan's writing for awhile and I'm glad to see him create a podcast. He's had great guests on so far and they cover a variety of important topics!
