Mildly entertaining with poorly researched content

I wanted to enjoy the chapters in this podcast. I really did. Sadly, after listening to how badly the names of the holidays were mauled under the Judaism section, I can only assume the same issues are present in all the other chapters as well. Additionally the less then sophomoric analysis of the meanings of the Jewish holidays Leads me to believe that under other chapters, such as Islam, the analysis is just as cursory and amateurish. This is a comic book that is trying to impersonate higher education.

My initial impression was that this series of lectures was a decent and unbiased summary of the history and beliefs of the major world religions. That impression was brought into serious doubt, though, after listening to the Christianity segment, which was a confused and inaccurate mess. I see several reviews here by practicioners of other of the faiths profiled saying the same so am forced to conclude that I've wasted several hours and made the task of understanding my neighbors more difficult. I'd recommend you not do the same.
