  1. I should note (and should have while we were recording) that Homebrewed Christianity’s recent “Theology Nerd Throwdown” series shows a side of that show that’s refreshing to see–although my own theology and Tripp’s differ significantly (I tend to resonate with the Postliberal and Radical Orthodoxy projects, while he finds them too confining to be authentic postmodern theologies), his recent discussions of liberalism, evangelicalism, and other such theological “camps” have been lively and interesting. And beyond that, because Tripp isn’t concerned with making an interview subject comfortable, one can hear more of the Tripp-Fuller position in these recent episodes.

  2. Enjoyed the latest episode guys, and looking forward to what will undoubtedly be another interesting season. I’m particularly looking forward to the trilogy on Greek tragedy (took a minor in Classical Studies while pursuing my English and Linguistics degrees).

    Oh, and as much as I’m sure the three of you live very exciting lives, David, I’m much more interested in Michial’s philosophical musings than in “what happened to [him] today”. 🙂
