“I have listened to every episode of this podcast and look forward to the next one each week. Many other reviewers have commented on the strengths of the series. I agree and will not repeat them here except to summarize that I find Christian soul nourishment here. I want to instead comment on a couple aspects that I find not so great.
The first is that it is sometimes too cautiously unwilling to make definite statements. The most extreme example of this is the episode following the first presidential debate. It felt to me like a much too intellectualized response to an appalling spectacle. It also projected a weird naivety, almost as if the Trump on display was something new.
The second is that as an older listener the language “tics” of the hosts and many guests in every episode are grating to my ears. I’m referring to the near constant use of “sort of”, “kind of” and other similar fillers. I understand that is how even highly intelligent and educated people speak today and I just have to accept it. Filtering out or just ignoring all the empty fillers is mental work I wish I did not have to do while listening. But it’s worth it for an otherwise great podcast.”
