The RELEVANT Podcast

Reviews For The RELEVANT Podcast

My wife and I finally convinced my brother John to start listening (during the boys of summer period) and his first reaction was, “someone needs to slap those boys.” We promised that if he listened to a few more, he would love it, but he didn’t and his life is slightly more dull and humorless because of his foolish mistake. Don’t be like John. My family has been listening since 2012 and this podcast has had us laughing together ever since. It was one of the few light spots during the hardest year of our life when our son was undergoing multiple heart surgeries.
Would’ve given it a five but over half the cast thinks Bennet is a better name than Squire Sebastian Senator. Bennet sounds like someone who wears a sweater tied over his shoulders in the summer in case it gets chilly. But other than that a great laugh.
Annie please stop repeating things and criticizing people
Great podcast! I think, now that it’s Christmas time, all boyfriends should beware... Cameron is a Hallmark movie waiting to happen. Father with child has moved into town, stumbles into path of young lady dating the totally wrong guy for her for too long. Cue romantic Christmas music as the love story begins.
I work long shifts as a custodian, and I am so thankful for two shows a week. I’m always looking forward to the next show
So that I don’t have to explain the joke to you when you ask why I’m laughing. -your wife, friend, lover
This is the best podcast!! Always full of laughs and information...that sometimes is important but most of the time isn’t which makes the pod very funny!! 10/10
I’ve been suffering for what seems like forever from some terrible illness, leading to a tear in the muscles that control my ribcage. They say laughter is the best medicine, but in my case, it sends me into fits of pain. As a longtime listener, I made the mistake of tuning in this week, only to be doubled over in both hysteria and agony. This podcast is not what the doctor ordered, and that’s okay. I guess I’ll just have to take another sick day.
If you love to hear Amish romance novels read by a soothing narrator - this podcast is for you. It’s all Amish, highland novels and Downton Abbey. Until Jesse gets back. Then it’s all sea law from there.
Usually my face hurts after listening to this podcast from laughing so much. Annie and The Boyz™️ are hilarious, witty, and kind. I am currently working my way through the archives and I have, on multiple occasions, listened to an episode and skipped over the actual interview because I would rather listen to everyone shoot the bull together than whatever non-comedic celebrity they’re interviewing. I aspire to be as funny and sharp as Jesse. I don’t think I’ll ever get there because I am pretty sure some sort of brain damage has to happen to get there, but that sure won’t stop me from trying. My only complaint is that there are only two episodes a week. Which isn’t even a complaint. I just don’t have enough of a life to do anything but listen to podcasts.
It’s like having an extra set of close and great friends with you on the go! They help you get through the week with a healthy balance of laughter and serious up-to-date issue that make you stop and think. I most enjoy listening when I’m outdoors, last year they helped me through a long below-freezing backpacking weekend. Love you all!
Listening helps you feel better about yourself when you hear grown adults talk about not knowing there are birds, other than ducks, that can swim!
After having listened to the podcast for years, I feel like I know the cast personally. No matter who is on the show (the cast changes quite a bit) each person brings something unique to the table. Don’t be surprised if you laugh out loud or interject with your own thoughts, it feels like you’re on a conference call with friends.
This podcast has it all! There is humour, insight, fun, and seriousness all wrapped up in a beautiful, relevant bow. The dynamic banter between the cast members is like noneother. I feel like one of the gang while listening each week. New episodes can't come quickly enough! Fantastic work! Please never stop producing this podcast!
My flatmate decided to listen to Relevant because I’m always laughing to myself and when I’m asked to explain my response I typically reply, “Relevant.” She decided to give it a listen but thought it was a bunch of nonsense! I had to explain to her that the relationship dynamics, amidst engaging in conversations about faith, culture, justice, are so hilariously real! And then the perfect analogy came to me. Listening to the podcast members go back and forth - bantering, joking, discussing, is like watching the best ping pong rally EVER!! Seriously love you guys. I do miss Andre Henry, and hope to hear more POC hosting in the future. But Tyler Huck. You are an absolute gem!! Such a genuine heart for people and wanting to see change (as you all do) but your interview with Austin Channing Brown, Tyler was very felt, real and needed. Thank you 🙏🏾 Heart eyes for Relevant 5ever. 😍
Podcasts come and go, but Relevant lasts forever. I’ve been listening for 4 years and have enjoyed almost every minute. There were some rough patches - they never needed a woman on the podcast more than when an episode was derailed for what felt like 20 minutes to elaborate on the story turned featured film “Cat Island!” Grateful for the Women on the podcast who can hang with the guys, but reel them in when things get just a little out of hand 😂. Love having Annie F. Downs on the show - thank you! Bring back Propaganda when he’s available, please - loved his insight and everything he brought to the table last summer! The podcast isn’t quite the same without Eddie, so it’s nice to have him back right now like old times. Overall lots of laughs, great conversations with guests, and what better way to spend your commute in traffic?! Listen and Subscribe. You won’t regret it!
I continue to be amazed how many times I hear the host say “I don’t want to hang (or be) with those people.” Is that Christ like?
When you don't have any friends in real life, they will become yours. You will laugh together until you can't breath, have inside jokes that run for years, and collectively increase the stock of Chili's. Best thing is, they have no choice in the fact that you are now BFF's.
Have you ever watched a tv show or listened to a band that has a cult following? This podcast is kind of like that. Which upon further life analization, I now realize I may be in a cult.
If you love these things you’ll like this podcast. Sometimes I listen to it and think I live in the Truman Show. On my way to meet the electrical company at my house Cameron talked about getting stood up by the electrical company. Other stuff like that has happened a bunch but I won’t bore you with the details. I just hope Jesse becomes nicer to Annie so she doesn’t leave the show. I was in New York City for the first time since 1999 and standing on top of the largest sky scraper in America made me want to Zip-line so bad.
This show is like a good bottle of wine. It gets better the older it is and the more you listen. Jessie is currently why I continue to listen. I’m a “woman of color” who survived being home schooled in the 90’s. And ironically, I relate to all the growing up Christian in the 90’s jokes.
This podcast is the perfect mix of humor and meaningful talks about issues that are current. The only downside is that you can't listen in public because I guarantee that you will Laugh out loud and people will stare. Also I really want to know how many of these reviews are written by Jessie. says relevant is all FAKE NEWS!
I love the podcast! I look forward to it every Tuesday and Friday. It is ALWAYS better when you have a woman in it (Annie, Joy, Shauna, whoever). When Annie is gone, I feel the need to skip because the guys just go off on these horrible tangents that I don’t care about. Please please please keep a woman on the show, even when Annie is gone. Cameron is always arguing with Annie, when before she finishes. Let the lady finish her thought before you dog her!!! Also, what happened to the sports podcast? And the red couch podcast? And the podcast about how Jesse fell directly on top of that dude during his college visit? In general, I would love to see more follow through.
This eclectic group of people and their guests, some which I feel like grew up with (Jesse) and some that I just want to be more like (Annie), keep me company during my drive time. Doesn’t matter if it’s a road trip or quick jaunt to the grocery store - I like hanging out with them. The crew has has changed frequently which makes me wonder what happens to those that don’t get to come back. This is only because I buy into the conspiracy theories that the group likes to bat around. Sure, they talk about past members like they still exist, and you might even hear their voices sometimes. I’m pretty sure they have the editing technology to re-create that from old recording’s. And this is why we never actually get a regular video podcast. That technology it’s quite not there yet. Yet I love it. And someday I hope to meet them - I just hope they don’t make me disappear.
You guys make my day! Been a fan of Annie for a long time, and now you all. Love the content, love Chandler’s complimentary laugh at awkward jokes. 😍
I laugh out loud every single week and cannot wait for the next episode. I thoroughly enjoyed learning about the world’s fastest bear and the haunted White House and think Abbie has great slices! Ps My favorite part is during ask Jesse when he describes a man tucking polo shirts into jeans with a blue tooth and cell phone clip. You describe an ex boyfriend exactly and it serves as a nice reminder that it is a good thing I’m single. Please keep including this in your advice.
There has never been better banter. There are morning radio shows out there that arrive for this kind of commentary and never reach such great heights. My only critique is that Annie stop putting Jesse down for his wise, sage advice. Additionally, props to Cameron for doing hood to coast and proving her pessimism wrong.
I just love this podcast, I consistently die laughing and they feel like my friends. It really makes me sad when I am all caught up with the episodes. HOWEVER- if you feel like you want more, there are so many amazing gems to be dug up from the Internet- especially Chandler’s “Slow Jams From the Kitchen” on YouTube. Go mining and you will not be disappointed with the nuggets you find to add value to your week
As a lifelong fan of Boston Market, it warmed my heart hearing Jesse profess his unrequited love for sneaking their food into movie theaters. Terrific content, makes me laugh out loud on the subway in front of strangers.
I would give this podcast five stars, but my wife laughs more at Jesse’s jokes than she does at mine. (Which is none.)
It’s just a little bit secular!! And that’s why I love it! I don’t know of a more informative, hilarious, though provoking podcast out there.
My son will be born in a week (don’t judge our procrastination Annie F. Downs, I see you). We’ve got a first name, Noah. But we need a middle name.... Jesse... please.
We all know who really picks the slices. I’ve listen for about a year now , I’ve figured out the conspiracy. Jessie isn’t actually the slice czar. The real slice czar is BIGBONE smallbone . Jessie actually liked the world fattest bear, but bigbone shut it down. #relevantconspiracy . . . . But seriously, I’ve listened to this show for about a year, and I love it. It’s hilarious, RELEVaNt , faith meets culture (for example, the worlds fattest bear ) , and even some serious talk. Love the show keep it up .
Obviously I can’t say that Relevant is my favorite because my absolute favorite is That Sounds Fun with Annie F. Downs (7w6 girls unite)! But this is a very, very, very close second. it honestly feels like a lunch conversation with my best friends. Topics range from the most hilarious family stories, to the most serious political issues... and at the end of each episode I am crying-laughing. I’ve learned not to listen in a coffee shop or while I’m walking to class because otherwise people will stare at me!!
Easily one of the top 5 pro-dcTalk, pro-Chili's, anti-fat-bear podcasts out there. One star removed due to that fact that they have replaced the higly acclaimed listener of the week segment with pretend Carman wannabe life coaching sessions.
Well, I think I’m his best friend. He’s not my best friend. I have lots of friends.
They’re so good they give themselves goosebumps.
This is an amazing podcast. I don’t always agree with the theology, but these guys (and girl) are good-hearted, hilarious people. Slices is always awesome. Most importantly— Jesse Carey is literally one of the funniest people I’ve ever heard. He veers into pretty odd territory most of the time, but he’s pretty funny so I ignore it
People look at you in disgust when you burst out laughing in a cubicle all by yourself. While you may get the stink eye from your coworkers, this podcast is worth listening to any where any time.
I look forward to new episodes every week, so funny and so timely. Just listen to it! Edit: don’t listen to this podcast at the gym. I almost dropped a dumbbell on face this morning when Jesse made a joke about the worlds fattest bear haunting the White House.
I have listened to this podcast for about 5 years now. Always makes me chuckle. Except the time Annie talked about the always existent fattest bear. I approve of Jessie rejecting Annie’s 2 slices.
I wake up everyday and listen to you all at work to get my morning started. This show honestly is the best and makes you feel like you’re in a room with them! Most amazing Podcast ever!(going to be subscribing to the magazine soon!) Also, I want to know about the worlds fattest bear!
This podcast is amazing! Love the topics and the different views of the them all! I listen every week while I’m at work and it makes me mad when I have to pause to answer the phone... I never want to miss a moment of this show! Thanks so much for all you guys do!
I came for Annie F. Downs, but I stay for the Jesse Carey soundbite at the end of each episode. This group will have you laughing so hard you cry, but they also have deep and meaningful discussions about Christianity and today's culture. Seriously so good. I never miss an episode!
