The Greatest Show (EVER) about the Worst(?) Book in the Bible

May 11th, 2020

Episode 16 Judges Superlatives

This was probably my favorite to record. We brought in our sound engineer, James, to help us with this one. We take some time as we wrap up Judges to have a little fun. We do some Judges superlatives and then pick our Judges team, almost as if it were a fantasy team. Do you agree with our choices? Let us know on our Instagram or Facebook page, or by emailing us at yamcastpod@gmail.com. Thanks for listening, share this gift with others, you will not regret it!


Co-hosts: Erica, Chris (and JAMES - welcome to the Big Leagues son!)
