Ep. 29 - What is Freedom? - Mike Hutten

In this episode we tackled the topic of freedom: What does it mean, where does it come from, and how to we maintain it? Mike has been doing a series on freedom on his own podcast, One Christian Thinks, and so we had him back in the studio to break down his research for us. For those of you who are sick of talking about c*vid, fear not, we did not dwell on that topic too much this episode. However, for those of you still interested in the topic, the principles discussed do certainly apply to our current governmental situation. As always, please send in your feedback as we are do for a feedback episode in the near future!
