Making Great Application
Some of the podcasts I listen to are simply information driven -"here are the facts," kind of podcasts. I find that Point of Contact actually makes "contact" with reality in the sense that the hosts drive toward an application, toward a place the information/noise can touch done and then ask the question, "how then shall we live?"
Downsides to the podcast:
Not enough podcasts! I want more- they should make more and then we can have MORE! My hope is that they will be able to put out content at about a rate of 1 podcast per week- which seems to be ideal so you don't get so behind you don't know what's going on- but often enough that one can add it to a routine.
Great job, guys- keep up the good work!
