Spiffing, Sparky, Snazzy Stuff
I love hearing from friends about what they're learning from and taking joy in: books and music and the things that pave patterns of pleasure. (Apart from this, I never would have gotten into G.K. Chesterton and pizza on English muffins. And that would be a crime.) This podcast is just like that--hearing about what's good from those you respect. When it's so much easier to go shopping for gutters or call out blogs, it's refreshing to see celebration shown as something worth participating in. This podcast is spiffing, sparky, snazzy--all the good stuff.
Refreshing & Enjoyable
It was refreshing to listen to a couple of guys simply talk about some things that they enjoy. In a day and age where everyone else is on a rant, this was really enjoyable to listen to.
