You did recommend this conquest podcast. I did listen to the first episodes and really, that guy leaves room for the possibility that god directly interfered in history. His only source is the bible and he dismisses egyptian sources out of hand with “yeah, but that may be hearsay while the bible can be a first-hand account”.
Did you really assume that this is on par or in the same league as what you do here?
Great episode as always. I was wondering if it would be possible to make your show avaible on Spotify? I severly lack free space on my phone and therefore I’m using this app for my podcast listening needs 🙂
