Fun and insightful
After listening to the first couple episodes of this podcast it is clear the the hosts enjoy their faith. That is no little statement in a world that is obsessed with negativity. Easter people is the perfect name for the show. The do a great job of really engaging themselves in deep conversations with out wandering into a destructive nature. It made me laugh while learning, and how often can you say that!
Light hearted and inspiring
I love that this is a progressive Christian podcast that stays out of the big fights and inside baseball, instead focusing on faith in a positive, fun way. The format shares a lot in common with Pop Culture Happy Hour, and similar to that show, keeps the conversation moving - not much rambling here. The show is a unique voice in speaking to the faith experience of Christians in liturgical traditions, though they're careful to explain what they're talking about for all listeners. One star deducted for inconsistent volume, but this is well worth fiddling with the dial occasionally.
