These podcasts are great. They give a totally UNBIASED look into a variety of religious traditions. I have a degree in Comparative Religions and am starting grad school next fall. I have been listening to these podcasts as a review, since it has been a few years since I finished my BA. I have learned new things that weren't covered in my Religious Studies classes. I absolutely love these podcasts. The speaker's voice is totally clear, the layout is amazing. The broadcasts are split up into sections with a review and an outline of the next section. This is an excellent tool for any student or anyone curious about different religions.
Professional, indepth, and engaging
This is how this should be done. I would like to see the enhanced Podcasts switch to a new image with each chapter and it actually sounds like that is intended in some areas. This is something that will never leave my iPod. Being able to scroll through the Podcasts and see the chapters make it fantastic as a reference tool.
