Boing Boing, Ross and Carrie!

| 0 comments
Hey, will you look at that? Cory Doctorow of Boing Boing has written a review of "Oh No, Ross and Carrie" and it's glowing.

"After dozens of hours of listening, enjoying, laughing and learning, I'm totally converted to their faith... One thing I loved about Ross and Carrie was their compassion and respect for the good side of even the most woo, most cultlike practices. Having grown up in hardcore Creationist/young earth Christian traditions, they both are alive to the benefits of belonging to a faith. They are careful to call out the good that these practices do for their practitioners, and go out of their way to give the other side airtime...."
If you haven't heard of Cory before, he is famous for more than sounding like a smashup of Carrie and E.L. Doctorow. You may have heard of his books, Homeland, Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom, or Little Brother.

But will they actually comprehend what they read? We're not gonna tell you! Listen and find out!
