Not Just For Women
I truly enjoy listening to this podcast. The ladies hosting it are funny, insightful, and throughly biblical. Although these this show contains topics discussed from a biblically-minded female perspective - men, you will get something from this as well. This show is definitely ranked in my top 10 most commonly listened to podcasts. A new show is released every Tuesday - don't miss them.
Finally! I have been looking for a podcast hosted by serious-minded Christian women who talk about all types of theological issues in an engaging way and this is it. The conversations are entertaining and thought-provoking. Highly recommend if you are looking for the same!
Paving the Way
We need more female-led podcasts that address issues of culture and Christianity, not just women’s issues in culture and Christianity. I’m thankful for Erin and Hannah’s voices and hope that this podcast encourages other content producers to strive for more female hosts and perspectives.
