On a Quest for a Star

Just as the star of Bethlehem emerged within the foreign culture of the three magi, and invited them to start an adventurous journey to the newborn Savior, the programs of SQPN tap into popular culture to invite people on a journey of discovery towards an encounter with Christ.

Little treat for you all:
This was a pleasant surprise in my mailbox today! Thank you SQPN for producing interesting content!
How can I thank Jeff?
Are you guys watching Jack Ryan on Amazon Prime? I was enjoying it until episode 7 and what I consider to be a huge plot hole. To use one of Jimmy Akins lines they chose cheap writing to extend the plot rather than working through a more plausible story line. I’m still angry about it! No spoilers as I haven’t watched episode 8 yet! 😎
Are there any thoughts of having an anime based podcast? Or if you know of any good podcasts that talk about that. If not, maybe I will start my own. Haha. I love Jimmy's new podcast. Jimmy is one of my favorite podcaster, apologist, etc. Secrets of Doctor Who is great!
How soon until you guys do a Lost in Space episode? I have definite opions about the story arc for Dr Smith.
