Love the authentic, relatable discussion
I just found the Real Talk podcast last week, and I just wanted to let you know that it's fantastic! I think you guys have done a great job of being in touch with a lot of things that are relevant for people today that don't often get talked about with such candor and vulnerability. I love a Christian media outlet that isn't afraid to just be real. It's been refreshing to listen to you guys sharing things from your hearts, whether you're debating Android vs iPhone, or my favorite so far - the episode about processing pain in life. The way you talk just isn't something that's often found in Christian media, so I thank you for it...we need more people like you breaking down the stereotypes of Christianity, showing that we're all real, broken people, trusting God to be with us just a day at a time.
I just want to encourage you guys to keep up the good work. As someone who works in the Christian radio industry, I can tell you put in a ton of prep work into the show, and I hope your listenership continues to grow and be a blessing to many people.
Refreshing and Fun!
So refreshing! Love hearing the honest conversation! Lots of giggles listening to you guys cracking each other up while being real about actual life and struggles. Will definitely continue to listen and recommend to others!!
