I heard about STR at college almost 10 years ago. I have been a regular listener of the pod cast since then. I find that the information I receive is often relevant to what is happening in society at large and on a number of occasions my children are dealing with issues at school that Greg has spoke on recently. I also appreciate that Greg will often identify logical fallacies in arguments that are presented during the pod cast. It has helped me to begin seeing them in my conversations with others.

The weekly Stand to Reason podcast is one I never miss. The podcast features thoughtful commentary on timely issues as well as dialogue with callers on a variety of topics dealing with religion and ethics. Greg is a great host, and always gives his callers plenty of time, and offers well reasoned answers and reflection to their questions. He is especially accommodating to callers from different worldviews who always have the opportunity to ask questions and make their case. Highly recommended!
