National Geographic and Morgan Freeman working together was already exciting…commentary and reflection from two preeminent scholars of religion makes for a 5 star podcast! Tune in for hilarity and intellectual stimulation - you might even find yourself stimulated in other ways I dare you to find out for yourself...
I enjoy the show, but the hosts of the podcast are an odd choice, especially after the third episode. The two hosts don't seem to enjoy the show much. They tear it down constantly. It's like they are mocking you for enjoying it. I would describe the podcast this way: a couple of academics tear the show apart pointing out what they see is wrong with it, or not in line with their superior thinking, without offering any real commentary or conversation about the content. Just pointing out what's wrong in smug, self-satisfied banter you'd expect at a University coffe shop. This third episode was pretty frustrating. I'll likely stop listening. It's just a drag. I do listen to some of Tripp's other podcasts, but there are usually guests on them. I think that helps. Where's Peter Rollins when you need him?
Laughter and The Mysteries of Life
I love this podcast! I’m a huge fan and devoted listener of Homebrewed Christianity so I had an idea of the intellect and humor that would go down each week in their discussions. I just love Tripp and Barry’s commentary! They bring life to the topics each week and great things to think about--and they are hilarious!!! They make me laugh out loud every time!! I hope Tripp and Barry continue having a podcast together long after the TV show is over since it’s only 7 episodes. If you love to ponder the mysteries of life and need more laughter in your life, this podcast is a must!
