>Podcast recommendations


I subscribe to quite a few free podcasts on iTunes. iTunes will download audio files as they become available and then you can listen to them on an ipod or MP3 player. I have a few I would recommend if you are getting started. I don’t have time to listen to all of these, but I do listen when the topic or text seems interesting.

Renewing Your Mind
(R.C. Sproul’s audio lectures and Sunday School lessons)

The Reformed Forum
(a group of Reformed pastors interview theologians and talk books/theology)

Issues etc.
(Talk show produced by the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod)

The White Horse Inn
(Michael Horton and Friends discuss practical theology)

NPR – Religion
(Stories on Religion from NPR for the week)

Theology Unplugged
(Michael Paton and friends)

Steve Brown Etc.
(Professor at RTS interviews various Christian newsmakers)

Covenant Radio
(Reformed discussion of theology [warning: can be FV leaning/friendly at times])

Bored-Again Christian
(music for Christians that are bored with Christian Music)


First Presbyterian in Jackson. (Ligon Duncan and Derek Thomas)

First Prebyterian in Columbia. (Sinclair Ferguson and Ian Murray)

Bethlehem Baptist (John Piper)

City Church in San Francisco

Other good ones I don’t get to that often:

Mars Hill in Seattle (Mark Driscoll)

Villiage Church in Dallas (Matt Chandler)

St. Peter’s Anglican Church.

Now if only Tim Keller would get on iTunes!!!



One thought on “>Podcast recommendations

  1. >I also listen to podcasts, usually while I’m commuting to and from work. I do the Theology Unplugged podcast as well (though they haven’t updated it much lately), and I listen to the Middlebrow podcast from Scriptorium Daily, and though that one has been shading into Limbaugh-land a bit lately, by and large it’s a solidly intellectual and solidly Christian podcast, even if a bit elephantine for my tastes.I also do a couple NPR podcasts, usually Radio Lab (because it’s a smart and entertaining discussion of the frontiers of science) and Car Talk (because it’s the funniest thing on radio or podcast). If you’re into philosophical discussion at all, I’d also recommend Radio Free Philosophy, which leans atheist but nonetheless presents some good philosophical ideas pretty clearly, and Entitled Opinions from Stanford University, which often features interviews with famous living intellectuals. The Australian Broadcast Company also puts out a pretty good philosophical podcast called Big Ideas.Finally, just because it’s so well written, I can’t help but recommend The History of Rome by Mike Duncan. He started his project in December 2007 with a podcast on the legend of Aeneas, and this week he finally got to Julius Caesar, his 48th 15-minute podcast in the series. I’m planning some time soon to start the series over and take them in order (there was a mix-up with the RSS feed when I joined up), and you should too.
