I love this podcast. you guys do a great job with content and guests. I plan on listening to every one. My only suggestion would be to try and limit the total amount of people on the podcast to 3. I think 4 is too many as often the people seem to be fighting over each other to speak and people get interrupted often. Other than that it's awesome!

Catching up on my JJ Redick Podcast and loved that he listed The Holiday (#1 all-time), The Family Stone and Love Actually as his top Christmas movies. How serendipitous.

lol dinosaurs are real. They were just called dragons. thats why almost every culture and society has dragons in them and their art work. Biblically, the earth is at least 6000 years old. The great flood happened 4000 years ago Jesus died and rose again 2000 years ago.
