Best hour of my day.
Solid, intellectual conversation, with plenty of humor. It's great to see Christians not be afraid to actually be honest and tackle topics that would otherwise typically be taboo.
Thank You, John Driver
I have missed you my friend and those discussions we had so many years ago. This is you being you. This is a great episode. I look forward to many more.
Funny, refreshing, and real
Great to hear friends chat, joke, and be real about the things you would expect long term buddies to talk about. These guys are spiritual, funny, and smart. A must listen to.
