I have an hour commute to work. 20 min drive, then a 40 min train ride. I have a hard time listening to audiobooks, talk radio, and most podcasts. I subconsciously stop paying attention (no matter the subject) and so I only listen when I can read along. Which is only while I’m on the train. And so I have been wasting my drive time! I either listen to music or let my work day creep into my thoughts far too early. This podcast has helped me eliminate that waste and provided something very valuable to my life. I listen to the podcast during the drive, and then I read that chapter and the next one on the train.
Jason is very captivating in how he delivers his content, which means when I do realize I’m not paying attention I only have to rewind 15-30 seconds to be at my last recognized spot. With other podcasts and books sometimes I have to skip back 3-4 minutes.
The background and insights are very insightful (can I say that?). As an adult I’ve wanted an experience similar to seminary to aide my comprehension and retention of the history, doctrine, and principles in the Book of Mormon. I now found the perfect supplement to my study of the Book of Mormon. And when I finish studying the whole book with the help of this podcast, I look forward to repeating the same process from the beginning.
