Hey SW?P listeners!
We just wanted to let you know that we are moving our new studio on the campus of the University of Mobile where the show will have a permanent home allowing us to produce better quality episodes at a more consistent schedule. Please, bear with us during the move!
We have great episodes coming up in our current series, Reformation 500, with topics ranging from the Reformation and marginalized communities to Reformers’ biographies to misconceptions about the Reformation.
