top notch podcast
You started the sob fest episode by saying it wouldn't be that good, but I'd say it was your best one yet. I think many people face the choice, at some point early in life, of (a) chasing their dreams or (b) going the more practical route, because (let's face it) these two paths so rarely run parallel. How sad it would be to get to the end of your life and realize you were too focused and didn't leave any time for dream chasing or didn't leave space for the twists and turns resulting from personal revelation. So much to think about here! I love your podcast. Oh, and you should bring Josh back soon. He's obviously less spiritual because he does not cry, but I feel that his chilly, and somewhat absurd, personality balances the show out nicely.
Binged on the first 5 episodes, and it wasn’t until David’s very personal, vulnerable #6 that I felt really committed to subscribing.
Great stuff. Keep it going.
Go light the dark.
Filling a Podcasting Hole
It's great to hear a Mormon-centric podcast from regular folk. The official church stuff is great, as is the FAIR stuff, but other than that most mormon podcasts are extremely negative and unpleasant to listen to. This podcast is both clean and amusing. May David keep it going for years and years.
