Elizabeth is my friend

Seriously loving this podcast. It feel like having a call with great friends and someone asks a big life questions. This last episode I have fallen in love with the fact that all of the hosts are people. They are not holier than thou that can be common with culture and church podcasts. They are real people asking big questions from a Biblical perspective. I love that so very much. Thank you!

Great Audio Quality

I mean, yeah, the substance of the podcast is great, but what does it for me is the audio quality and choice of music. Someone give that audio editor a raise!
