Wouldn't it be nice?
Wouldn't it be nice if you could listen in on bright, likeable people talking about things that you wish you could talk about with your friends but are afraid to bring up in polite conversation? That's why I'm so excited about the premise of Impolite Company and its hosts. Very much looking forward to hearing more.
Impolite Company gives us some rational discourse on religion
My favorite part of this podcast is that it takes place in a "safe space" between being religious and not being religious. No judgements to either side. It is simply a nice place to hear about things we are often afraid to discuss "in polite company."
Ready for more.
DISCLOSURE: I am the host of The Shakes, a podcast also featured on Mule Radio Syndicate.
I was really and surprised to see a podcast from TJ and Lindsay show up on Mule Radio Syndicate. I have been Tumblr and Twitter followers of theirs for a couple of years and have found both of them interesting in their own ways. But, combined on this topic, I'm interested in a whole new way.
We get enough of a taste of people's interpretation of the exclusionary, prejudiced Christianity. That's not *my* religion. My Christianity is inclusive and full of broken people just trying to make themselves better through the grace of God. We don't hear enough of that, and that's where this show has a unique voice.
Can't wait for these two to get really comfy with their show. It's going to just get better.
