What does it cost?
Oh, podcast newbie, you just gave yourself away.
No fee for the podcast.
You’d thrill us if you become a patron so we can offer transcripts of each episode.
You already know…if you’re a Jesus follower, it costs you all you’ve got.
How long will each episode be?
Long enough for you to take a walk or a run.
Long enough to be your companion on a drive across town.
Long enough that you’re invited into a conversation and have something to talk about with people that matter to you.
Ok, ok. Each episode is about 30 minutes…give or take a few minutes.
How often will it take place?
Well now, aren’t you the planner?! Our desire is to share weekly content. We may occasionally take a week off, because…life invites us to pause sometimes.
What’s it about?
Hint: See “why listen”
Hint 2: the first six episodes include a parable, a reflection (maybe a rant, too ;), and a lot of HOPE.
Hint 3: Listen and find out.
Who’s doing this?
Tim Bias and Sara Thomas with guests along the way.
