  1. I listened and loved it.  If it’s not too early to start requesting episodes (and if it is, I’ve already done so), could you dwell a spell longer on the Wesleyan Quadrilateral?  Seems to me that Scripture, tradition, reason, and experience are four things that have been and should be the subject-matter of feminist examination, and I’d like to hear your crew take them on.  
    Beyond that, I really liked the idea that the self-aware interpretation is superior to the interpretation that pretends not to be.  That’s one of those distinctions that I’ll carry with me for sure.
    Good show, and I look forward to the next one!

  2. ngilmour Thanks for listening. I’ll talk to Shelah about making the Quadrilateral its own show; I’m sure she’d be excited! Thanks again for all the support from the CHP.
