Rob Skiba & The Normal Portion

I love listening to Rob Skiba. The guy is funny, informed, and not afraid to look into even the most controversial topics (If you don't know what I'm talking about, go see his channel, and when you do, keep an open mind).
We need more people who are Torah observant, and normal. Rob is pretty normal. He didn't change his name to Ya'kav Ben HaSkiba when he learned about Torah's validity. He doesn't start every show with a shofar's blast. He can bring a message without immediately turning people away, and we need more of that. Not that there is anything wrong with a person using their Hebrew name, or blowing the shofar, but come on, ...every time? The Messianic / Hebrew Roots movement is written off usually within the first few seconds. My own experience in looking for credible teachers over a decade ago lead me to a bunch of people dressed like Moses with names I couldn't pronounce. If was a little intimidating, and a bit silly to be honest. 
In comes Rob, all these years later, bringing great teaching with a bit of familiarity. 
Thanks Rob, keep up the good work!
