easy to listen to
Good podcast on a broad range of topics - spirituality, art, psychology, sociology. Steve's very comfortable behind the mic whether giving his own thoughts or drawing things out of a guest.
If you enjoy podcasts like the Liturgists, Robcast, Science Mike, etc., then you’ll love Steve’s perspective on spirituality & Christianity. His voice is one I’ve trusted and appreciated at all points along my rollercoaster of a spiritual journey. Thoughtful, intelligent, progressive, practical, never stagnant.
I knew something in me had shifted years ago as I began to question the thoughts, beliefs, truths, about the faith/religion of my childhood. Thankful to now have this podcast to help me verbalize what I’m feeling/thinking ... always a work in progress.
