“Anything worth doing is worth doing badly,” Chesterton used to say. After six and half years, we still hold this as our motto, remaining thoroughly unimpressed with each episode.

Behind the scenes, a few of our friends make this podcast possible. As a newly established non-profit, any donation you can offer would go directly towards supporting them.

Thank you again for your support. And enjoy the banter!
