Reviews For The RELEVANT Podcast

Never listening to podcast again. It was a waste of time. I LOVE the mag, but they have dropped the ball with the podcast!
Relevant is hands-down one of the funniest podcasts out there, while also being timely and impactful. The personalities are fabulous and I always feel like I'm listening to a conversation with my good friends.
I keep wanting to like this podcast, they interview great people - but it’s only for about 1/4 of the show. The rest of the time is them going back and forth with each other about pop culture while music plays in the background (it also plays during interviews, literally plays the entire show like tv background noise). It’s a 1.5 hour show & i can’t tell what the focus/ purpose is for it? I hate being so harsh here, but it really has potential to be great, but the hosts dominate the convo & the banter & non-stop music is really distracting and agitating to listen to.
The host of The RELEVANT Podcast highlights all aspects of Christianity in this can’t miss podcast. The host and expert guests offer insightful advice that is helpful to anyone that listens!
I look forward to every Friday for the very fact that this podcast automatically downloads on my phone! If you’re not listening to it, do it. Be ready to laugh, be confused, be educated, and encouraged. It’s all worth it!
Big fan of the podcast but Eddie’s too negative for the show. So much fun and positivity that Eddie brings down. Bring back Shauna or John full time.
I listen to this podcast on my (rather short) commute and it actually makes me look forward to driving! I feel like I get to just hangin out with my best buds. Ii absolutely look forward every week to what these crazy kids will say next. So so so funny!!! My advice for first time listeners is to give it a few episodes. There's a lot of jokes from previous episodes--so give it time to get to know all the cast members, you will not regret it!
Been listening to this podcast for about 10 years. It's the one show I listen to every single week. Hilarious commentary and awesome guests! I can't recommend it enough!
I've been listening to this podcast for the past four years and I love it. This podcast is worth listening whether the cast is talking about cultural issues, faith, or just having fun.
I look forward to new episodes every week, so funny and so timely. Just listen to it!
This was the first podcast I've ever downloaded back in 2010 and now that I'm addicted to so many other podcast, I can credit this one for that love. This show is funny, goofy, deep, and inspiring. If feels like you're just hanging with friends as you get work done. Keep it up RELEVANT!
Somewhat entertaining but I was looking for more value. I just don’t typically have time to kill so I was fast forwarding looking for the value and did find a few spots during the actual interview. It could have been edited down to closer to 10 minutes for me.
I’ve been listening to the pod for quite some time, 7-8 years, if not more. I’m am as pleased today as I was with my first listen. Yes, the cast has changed, some shows are better than others, but as a whole, this show is just stellar. When I go a week without the cast, I feel as if something’s missing. The way in which you all handle big topics and the minutiae is refreshing and inspired. No, it’s not the most serious, Christ-driven pod, but that’s the purpose. Relevant is the intersection of faith and culture, and this show is the epitome of that ideal.
Great cast, great perspective on current events and wildly funny banter
A Huff Post wantabe that mostly lies and clearly goes against scripture but pretends they are the saviors of the world and Jesus was a free love hippie. The problem begins with the founder and host who hates God now because he is a child that can't look in the mirror and own his sin and pride. It cost him his marriage and instead of looking to Jesus to fix him he looked to politics to cover his sin issues so now he just spreads lies because the truth offends him. I pray for him, but no one should listen to people who replace the truth with lies.
So much love! Started listening about a month ago and have worked my way backward. I laugh out loud listening, something that is so needed these days. I think some poking fun at ourselves is good, let’s be honest some things us Christians do need to be made fun of. Keep doing what you’re doing!
Consistent and funny. Always enjoy listening.
This podcast is out of control funny smart and just beating a dead horse with some of the same jokes through out herring about culture faith and life and the music is dope too
It's almost like hanging out with friends, except they're not. Still the best podcast of my week!
Love these guys! Edgy Eddie is my spirit animal 🦁
I love this podcast and it is one of the only ones that I listen to every week. I listen to it less because of the interviews and more because it is like hearing old friends talk about life. So I really want to give it a higher rating but...they so need some diversity. They have not had a female host for months now and have mentioned several times they are looking for somebody. But I find that slightly offensive - there are so many talented women who could be pulled in and I don't think it should be this difficult to find someone. They desperately need a host who is not a white male and they need to make that a priority before losing credibility. As a side note and to not end on a negative note because I really do love this podcast - they have had Propaganda on several times this summer and he has been awesome.
This podcast has been a staple in my life for years, and I'm ashamed I haven't reviewed this before now. Some of the guys should be doing standup comedy - seriously. I can count on getting some good laughs every week. Intermixed with the craziness, they also cover some really important issues concerning social justice, current events, faith, and culture in general. Great focus on music which is right up my alley. Even though it's just a podcast, the content in these podcasts has shaped my faith and worldview, and kept me entertained while I mow my grass every week.
I've been listening for a few years and I love this podcast! The guys are always so funny and they have such interesting guests on every week.
I listen to the Relevant podcast on my way to and from work. I laugh so much while listening, I look crazy driving in backed up traffic. It's a great mix of current events and culture. It's just enough "all over the place," to me coming back. Keep up the great work!
Subscribe to the mag and listen to these guys great reviews and advice plus cool interviews. The cast is great to get to know and they interview people you want to know more about. They have only gotten better and continue to provide awesome content!
I've listened to every episode of this podcast that has been put out. I look forward to it every week. It's a fun and informative way to talk about recent news topics and culture news. Interesting interviews with musicians activits and authors. Frequent discussions about the intersection between faith and culture in our daily lives.

Funny and insightful. You can't lose.

3/5

I've listened to this podcast religiously for five years straight but had to stop, it was no longer healthy for me. I found myself annoyed at almost every episode... mainly at the show's overly white evangelical-centric POV. I'm sorry, but as a progressive Lutheran Christian, Rob Bell, Richard Rohr and Rachel Held Evans's views are respected, certainly not controversial, in my circle and I can't stand when y'all have to preface a segment defending why you're featuring them on your show. If the show or brand hopes to grow, I believe they need to 1) have more diverse Christian voices in leadership/host positions (could open up new possibilities for more diverse and fresh content) and 2) stop being apologetic and afraid of offending their base. Maybe I'll check back one day and give it another try but as for now, it's clear that it's not for me.
This used to be one of my favorite podcast but my interest has waned over the past 2 years. Every episode has an air of cynicism that I don't find enjoyable. I'm seriously so over Cameron Strang and his commentary on almost everything. He's a good moderator but comes off so arrogant that I cringe when he starts sharing his opinion on whatever topic is at hand. I hope to come back sometime later and find a better podcast but for now I'm done. There are so many podcast in the world and unfortunately this one is no longer worth my time.
I've been listening to the Relevant podcast for two years now, along with their magazine and online content, and it just keeps getting better. It's like hanging out with old friends and laughing the whole time, but you still walk away thinking. Please note: listening to the Podcast for extended periods of time will 100% make you funnier.
10 mins in to the first episode and I found them to be mean and condescending to people regarding the whole inadequate resume thing and throwing applications away if they can't figure out how to apply. I'm probably too sensitive, but I didn't think this was for me after that. I thought this was a Christian magazine, but their was no mercy to be heard in their conversation.
I love how this group is able to use modern culture and tell the story of Christ through that lens while sounding perfectly relevant.
The Relevant podcast has been a great source of entertainment, information and provoking thought. I really enjoy the interactions between the cast and even the current rotating cast has great chemistry.
This is, by far, my favorite podcast of all time. The blend of personalities on the show makes for extremely entertaining discussions about art, entertainment, church, and life in general. The banter between the shows hosts often leads to laugh out loud moments as I'm listening. Don't know what I would do without my relevant podcast each week!
Hilarious dialogue, thought provoking discussions and interviews, and great musical performances. I've learned about some great bands and musicians from The Relevant Podcast and enjoyed every episode since I started listening 7 years ago. Best way to sum it up is a quote from another listener, "I'm not sure what's happening, but I like it."
I love the ridiculous banter and news and information. It's also great to hear all of the different artists I love telling their stories.
I like the Christian themes with the actually relevant cultural critiques. It is about culture and entertainment and the crew is quite funny. If you believe that it is important for Christians to only talk about Jesus explicitly then never listen. If you think it is fun to chat about culture with friends, become a fly on the wall with the relevant crew. They have great conversations about all things music and entertainment. Occasionally a hard hitting topic but mostly just fun with people who you forget are complete strangers to you. Also... I read through the 1 star reviews... They are a treasure. If you like the podcasts read the 1 stars you'll love them. Thanks Relevant
Love the show and the guys on it!
I've been a RELEVANT reader for around 5 years and now a listener for almost two. I find myself waiting for each new addition to drop weekly. It's refreshing to hear voices and perspectives I can relate to on current events and general shenanigans. Having listened for some time, I feel like one of the guys and really that's the way it should be. Keep on bringin it. Call me if you want me on the mic.
I always listen to this podcast first. The cast always makes me laugh, even if it is a very male-dominated podcast. Still... HILARIOUS, and safe for kids if you don't mind them hearing about Nic Cage or Jesse's dangerous schemes.
For more than 10 years, the Relevant Podcast crew have accompanied my wife and I through a lot of big moments in life, road trips, moving into a new home, church plant set up, and even at the birth of our daughter, they have become the background sound track to our lives. Funny, insightful, encouraging, and informative - INFOTAINMENT! LOL can't wait for Friday to download the next episode!
This podcast provides listeners with a near-perfect balance between humorous observations on the world around us and hard hitting stories of social justice and inequality. Insightful people with strong senses of humor. I especially love when there are guests on the show like John Crist and Propaganda.
my favorite podcast!!
My Husband and I love this show and listen to the funny stuff they have to say every week Totally recommended it
I love RELEVANT podcast. I have to be careful when I'm listening in public because I will burst out laughing causing strange looks to rain down upon me. Anyway, I love it.
I started listening to the Relevant Podcast in 2011 and in the past six years, feel as though I've tapped into this beautiful world that is the podcast & podcast family. The best part of this podcast is that it's a hodgepodge of so many wonderful things- you'll hear incredible interviews with movers & shakers, you'll laugh out loud at seriously stupid jokes that continue to be built on year after year, and you'll get to know the heart of what Relevant is. Relevant is the first podcast I ever listened to with regularity and remains my favorite podcast because of their perfect mix of intentionality and frivolity.
I stumbled upon this podcast summer of 2016 and have been hooked ever since! It's funny, thought-provoking, and has introduced me to many great new artists, authors, and speakers.
I have to be careful when I listen to this in public! 🤣😂
I look forward every week to hearing this podcast! It's always fun with their cast and really thought-provoking with their interviews!
