Listening to Catholic Answers a caller says that there are a hundred similarities between Jesus and Horus. Jimmy Akin replied “Yes they both have Falcon heads.” The caller went on to to say he had read this list on the internet and Jimmy Akin interjected “You can trust everything on the internet.’ I just love that kind of dry humor that makes a point without mocking the caller and of course Jimmy went on with more specific and well thought out objections.
The interplay of Jimmy Akin and Patrick Coffin is also particularly good and I really like their banter which ranges in subjects and Patrick keeps up admirably with the encyclopedic Jimmy Akin. I always liked their previous host Jerry Usher who you could see grow in knowledge over the years, but Patrick Coffin is an excellent replacement who is both very funny and adept as a host to guide the conversations and to provide very thoughtful answers himself.
The interplay also of Patrick Madrid and Patrick Coffin is also very enjoyable as the dueling Patricks with very similar voices have a different pattern in their bantering, but equally fun. Really the interplay between Patrick Coffin and the other hosts such as Tim Staples are all unique in their way with good rapport.
The use of humor in shows such as Catholic Answers is I think very important in keeping the show relaxed while being able to dive into serious questions at times and when the callers are sometimes adversarial it also keeps the show from becoming dueling heads as in cable news.
