The RELEVANT Podcast

Reviews For The RELEVANT Podcast

I’m positive I’m not in the audience generation they are aiming for, (I’m 53), however I didn’t become a believer until I was 36 which makes me “immature” for my age. I like to know what is culturally relevant so that I don’t grow into a stale, bitter old person. Being a mom of 5 kids where 3 are young men, it’s like being a fly on the wall of guy talk which is just hilarious. I can’t wait until new episodes come out. Headphones in and let the laughing begin. It’s also fun having Annie F. “Not the quilter” Downs sit at the table. She can hang in there with you guys! Finding out that Annie and I have mutual friends made me giggle, (PushaT wedding photographer). Keep up the good work you all. I greatly appreciate it. From Loverland VA but in my case “Libertyburg”
Never miss an episode. The banter and humor this cast brings is unlike any other. Sarcasm, with a Christian perspective on culture that is hard to find. I could listen to the story of Jesse falling off the bunk bed every day and never fail to laugh.
Hi, I just listened to the “Social Misfits” episode and wanted to let you know that Dolly Parton is in a movie called “Nine to Five” with Jane Fonda, Lilly Tomlin, and Dabney Coleman. It’s a funny movie if you can watch a movie with Jane Fonda in it. As to the show, I will probably listen again, but the music by the guests wasn’t my type of music so I skipped it, but entertaining topics.
Love love love Relevant and the content they put out. However, while the guests featured on the show are incredible and interesting, the first 30 minutes typically end up being a drawn-out conversation about something that recently happened in the lives of the hosts. Even when the event is funny or interesting, they just carry on and on. Would love for more quick current events updates and how to integrate pop culture with our faith.
My go to for things on culture with a comedic, Christian twist. I wait for the latest podcasts every week like a paycheck. A must for subscription.
I’m not one to usually care about the world’s news and such. But the crew makes it enjoyable to keep up with and easily accessible. With funny and witty humor in a presentable fashion and a good balance of seriousness, the Relevant Podcast is worth the listen.
My favorite podcast by far for the mix of light entertainment, humor, learning about topics and differing points of view from my own, and the coverage of cultural news with a Christian slant. Plus, I’d listen only to hear Andre’s laugh :)
Really helps me get through the mondane of my cleaning work! These guys are ALL so entertaining!
This is one of my favorite podcasts and look forward to listening to it now twice a week. My only complaint is the poor audio quality for the guest interviews. Although I would like to listen, I always skip through the interviews because it is hard to hear due to the bad quality.
This show gets funnier more enjoyable and educational the more you listen to it. Just sit back, relax, and prepare to be entertained
I look forward to listening in twice a week! I have grown to love all the people involved and I really feel like we’re friends 😂 My favorite part is the connections they discuss between every day issues with faith.
I really love this show, I honestly do. But before they were horribly long and I always skipped the guests. Now they’re twice a week and I’m unsubscribing. Banter is fun, self indulgence isn’t
This is my go-to podcast that is an all-around fun listen
Super great podcast that covers almost everything. The cast is great so is the magazine. So hit that subscribe button and enjoy👍🏻
3 issues. One person that’s on occasionally has very weird voice inflections. The other is a person that says “yeah yeah yeah” “bougie” and brings up Enneagram way too often. The last issue is there’s been no update on the whale sharks for years.
I don’t think I’ve ever laughed or thought as much as I do listening to this podcast every week!

5/5

Always makes me laugh. Love hearing it twice a week!
Listening to this podcast brightens my day! I found Relevant through Annie’s podcast, and I’m so glad I did. I’m in this season where everything just feels so heavy all the time and the other day I thought to myself “I need to listen to something that will make me feel lighter!” Relevant came to mind. And for an hour I got to smile and laugh at the banter, wit and comedy from this group of friends. I think it’s beautiful and lovely and I would highly recommend! Thank you all for what you do and who you are :) <—— Yes I just put a smiley face in a review!
Been listening since the beginning! It’s like hanging out with old friends and always guaranteed to laugh.
Who is the guy that Jesse fell on!?!?!? I must know!!!
Really enjoy this podcast! Especially that it comes out twice in one week! Only thing is they’re pretty late on getting the episodes out when they say they will. Usually it’s late afternoon for both Wednesday and Friday Eps. Also it’s Thursday and the Wednesday episode hasn’t aired yet! Just wanna listen to y’all! Such great content and humor! Much love!
Everyone should listen to this podcast. It’s got a little bit everything, and it’s the highlight of my week.
I may be one of a few older people listening to the podcast. I have read the articles for a couple years because I want to know what the younger generation thinks. I love listening to you when I’m out running in the mornings and laughing along the way. Jesse is my favorite I so get his humor.
I’m 14 and I love Relevant. Whenever I’m upset about something I just listen to one episode of Relevant and by the end of it, I can’t stop laughing about something that happened in the episode. My family loves Relevant and I just felt like saying something about it. I also cannot look at mailmen the same way, and that’s all thanks to Relevant. I have a mad respect for lighthouse keepers now. Okay that’s all, have a great day everyone.
What a breath of fresh air. I enjoy your ability to laugh at yourself. I am a new listener and so glad I found you all. Keep talking and sharing your hearts and lives with us.
I’ve been a listener (and reader of the mag) for many, many years. The cast helps me laugh my way through daily Beirut traffic, and that’s no small feat. I love the balance between humor and bringing important issues to the forefront. You all are a bright spot in my day, keep at it!!
I’ve been a fan of the magazine for years, and last year started listening to the podcast...I’ve never missed an episode! It’s the best, really. Cameron and the team are incredible people. You get the whole range of emotions here! Laughing throughout, (seriously, LOLs :)), thoughtful commentary on culture as a believer, and a wide range of guest interviews. The crew feel like friends to me! Do yourself a favor, subscribe.
New listener and I actually prefer listening to the hosts than the guests. 😂 I mean don’t get me wrong some guests I’m excited to hear but I just love the different segments. Everyone is hilarious! I feel like we’re all besties. Keep it up!
I have listened to the relevant podcast for years and am a long time fan. Funniest part of my week without a doubt! I am literally checking my phone on Wednesday and Friday to get the latest episode. Always brings a smile on my face and I appreciate the dialog and conversations concerning important humanitarian causes and needs.
I came for the guest speakers, but left because they added an extra 45 min per week in banter between the hosts, when they changed their format to twice weekly.
They somehow get interesting guests, but the hosts are annoying and chatty—they’re always talking over one another and laughing at each other’s stupid jokes. I really wanted to like this podcast but it’s painful to listen to.
Very well produced, but the polish doesn’t make up for the content. Shallow and bland. Hosts don’t realize they aren’t the stars of the show. It’s a 30 minute program that takes 2 1/2 hours to get through... Overall, not that relevant... and pretty painful to get through.
Love you
I have been listening for a couple years now and though I had no issues listening through the longer podcasts, I was always a little sad that I had to wait a whole week to listen again. I love the new format because I can listen twice a week and it helps break up the monotony of my work days! Thank you Relevant! 💕
I first found this podcast three years ago as I searched for something to listen to as I commuted to work. I was going through a really rough time in life and needed something that would help me focus on the brighter side of life. Even in the mist of depression and doubting my faith this podcast made me laugh in public(which got me some dirty looks from old ladies on the train) and challenged me not to give up on God. Thanks Relevant for being strange and unique. Thank you for being the light at the end of the tunnel in those tough times.
I love the fact that they went to two episodes a week. It really help with my commute, rather than pausing. i love how they have split off the seperate days. Great podcast. Jesse- you are hilarious.
Been listening since almost the beginning. One of the few podcasts I listen to immediately when it comes out. They have only gotten better. Love the move to twice a week. One request: please put the songs in that episode in the show notes. Keep up the good work!
I have listened to the podcast ALMOST from its humble beginnings on a weekly basis. I highly enjoy the humour, insight on culture, and high profile guests that appear from week to week. Thank you for making my week better for so many weeks! Here’s to more Relevant Podcast!
I just recently started listening to this podcast, and I can’t believe I haven’t been listening longer! These guys and girls make me laugh A LOT while also bringing some important issues and valuable voices to the table. Keep up the good work!
I have been a listener for about 6 years now and have always looked forward to the show each week. There’s a great mix of hilarious personalities and interesting dialogue. It’s funny, but normally also makes me think.
I’m an on-again, off-again listener, mostly because the internet service in my corner of the world is only kind of reliable, but listen, I have been absolutely RIVETED to the unfolding mystery of Jesse’s college weekend in upstate New York. Who is this guy? Does he still own this jacket? I want to hear his four song ep. I am invested in getting to the bottom of this. More true crime, please!
I have enjoyed this podcast. I started listening to The Relevant only because Annie F. Downs said she was on it. That is the truth! Anyway, I have never giggled so much or was in dismay so much. You all hurt my feelings making fun of Dennis Quaid’s song he penned for his momma. And you did it 2 weeks in a row! What??? But it’s fun to here the weird things you find In ‘The Slice’ and the interviews. Keep making me laugh and I hope you find the guy Jesse fell on (I was driving and crying/laughing at that story)!
I love listening to this podcast while I’m folding laundry or cleaning up the kitchen, working out, or driving. They keep me laughing with their banter and stories, but they also present thoughtful and interesting interviews. Perfect for keeping me going through my monotonous tasks. Also, I have benefited from many of the discounts from their sponsors.
That’s a word they use a lot: “problematic.” I enjoy listening to this show quite a bit, because the slices are interesting and sometimes it’s extremely funny. But lately I’ve been finding less to enjoy about it. For starters, they’re always making things out to be huge issues when they aren’t. Mark Wahlberg getting paid for a reshoot is not a gender wage gap issue, and the Andrew Peterson music video was not a racial issue. They love to feed false narratives. I also get really annoyed when they bash Christian music for its low quality, but then play and recommend either bad or uninteresting music, like Social Club Misfits and LANY. Plus they’re really into any generic sounding worship band, so i don’t really get it. I think the host is just kind of pretentious. Other than that, and the fact that some of their ideas about Christianity aren’t great, it’s an enjoyable podcast.

5/5

Look forward to listening to and laughing with this great group of people every week.
I have listened to this podcast every week for years! It’s so much fun. It makes me smile and laugh every time. These guys are so relatable and yet totally themselves, which is refreshing! Thanks for taking time to create this each week, Relevant Podcast!
I’m not necessarily a culture guru or up to date on movies and actor/actresses, and this podcast is heavy on that type of content. But still, this podcast is fun. Engaging. Current topics. Faith without an ounce of prudishness. Jesse’s sense of humor is one of a kind. Fun banter. Not self righteous or cynical like some other faith based podcasts. I listen to a lot of podcasts because I travel a lot. This is probably my favorite go to podcast just for pure enjoyment and I have about 20 I subscribe to and choose from.
Covering everything from new releases in theaters and music to your basic survival skills in the jungles of Africa when you only have a camera and semi-dress shoes, the Relevant Podcast keeps you coming back for more every week.
This has been my favorite go-to podcast for years. I always have a good laugh, and it’s a great way to keep up to speed with what’s going on in culture. It’s also comforting to have this type of Christian voice in Trump’s America.
I love this podcast. Definitley one of the top three I make sure to have in my weekly rotation. Listenting to Relevant is a great way to stay up to date on what is going on in culture and how we as Christians can engage with it. The interviews are always good but really just keep the cast talking - by far my favorite sections!
