Hey Jnorm,

Off topic question. Have you heard of Matthew Gallitin? He's Orthodox. Do you recommend his stuff? Anyway, I noticed he has a bunch of podcasts on the ancientfaith.com site. I'm planning on checking them out.

I never knew him by name, but after looking at the AncientFaith.com site, I remember his face and I do recall listenning to a few of his podcasts. But I didn't associate the name with the face. To be honest, I never read any of his books before. I never knew he had any until I read his bio. So he's pretty new to me. Thanks to you, I'll try and check out his podcasts more often.


But I can't say one way or the other, just for the fact that he's pretty new to me. But I will try to check him out more often.

Thanks for bringing him to my attention.

He's a great listen. I especially liked his lecture to a group of Orthodox in Alaska, as well as his podcast on the Repentant Thief (only because I love the story of the Repentant Thief so much!).
