    Would any on the board care to share any podcast recommendations? I used to listen to talk radio a lot but I'm now finding that I only care for select shows or select topics on said shows. For that reason, I am now getting more into podcasts - I can streamline my listening interests more narrowly.

    So what are some podcasts you enjoy? You can share your favorite Christian podcasts, but please don't limit it to Christian ones!

    One can start with this little-known corner of the Puritan Board:

    I listen to Dr. Mohler's Briefing daily.

    I listen to a lot of sermons and podcasts. I've tried most of those in the PuritanBoard podcast links, but keep coming back to the Reformed Forum, especially "Christ the Center." The discussions go deep without getting mean-spirited or accusatory. Time after time, the hosts prove themselves to be men who are both humble/gracious and educated/discerning. This is an excellent and rare mix of qualities.

    I attempted to check out those links but most are broken/outdated, although I suppose I could still just search for the show listed.

    I'd really like some non-Christian suggestions too if ya got 'em.

    I'm not sure if you can access these or not, but I enjoy listening to the BBC Radio 4 Factual podcasts, especially in the car, or when gardening or something. Here are a couple of my favourites about literature, history, ancient culture etc. Almost always interesting, sometimes infurtiating, frequently informative!

    In Our Time BBC - Podcasts and Downloads - In Our Time With Melvyn Bragg (see also the archive list bottom right)

    I enjoyed listening to these podcasts about museum objects. A History of the World in 100 Objects BBC - Podcasts and Downloads - A History of the World in 100 Objects

    Here's the overall index page for factual podcasts on BBC. http://tinyurl.com/qyyawwc

    I do hope you can get at them over there.

    As to this, I listen to the Tom Woods show regularly. He discusses libertarian/small government/conservative topics, but he is always gracious and always interesting.

    One of the podcasts I greatly appreciate is "More or Less" from the BBC (Radio 4). Produced with the Open University they analyse stats. from the media. Interesting ones have been the question of London's status as the 10th French city, the number of persecuted Christians, why the Times (?) concluded there were only ten adult cod in the North Sea when every fisherman knows cod stocks are up!

    How about "Institutes of Biblical Defense" from SermonAudio.com? Anyone listen to it? Any good?

    --great podcast with Michael Horton

    -This stuff is gold. Just scroll over their programs and get all of them and listen to them twice. They are some of the best reformed podcasts.

    -This is my church, so I have a little bias on this one. The last series on apologetics was good.

    -Sprouls puts one out every day. They are excellent.

    -He can be a little steam of conscience and talkative, but if you listen to him consistently you will learn alot.

    --It's Ravi. He is useful.

    Podcast | The Confessing Baptist



    Podcast - Truth For Life




    --this one is unknown, but I have learned much from this simple podcast



    --this one is hit or miss

    just for fun:

    A second you on that.

    I like Mortification of Spin with Carl Trueman and Friends. They don't get vary much in-depth but always a good listen. 9Marks audio has several years of great interviews by Mark Dever.

    I like history, news, and politics. I also enjoy listening to just about anything that will teach me something useful. I like trivia type stuff also! Thanks for all your suggestion thus far! I will certainly be looking into many of them!

    I have an hour+ commute right now, so I listen to a TON of podcasts:

    The Dividing Line - James White
    CARM - Matt Slick (apologetics, lots of call in questions)
    Renewing Your Mind - RC Sproul
    lots and lots of sermons - Joel Beeke, Matt Chandler, Mark Driscoll, John Piper, Tim Keller

    also, after doing a search on here, I've recently starting listening to, and downloading Steve Brown etc., Ordinary means, Knowing the Truth, Reformed Forum, Grace to You, and White Horse Inn.

    The Dividing Line - James White (It's a real treat to be able to tune in live!)
    Mortification of Spin - Carl Trueman/Reformation 21
    5 Minutes in Church History - Stephen Nichols
    Thinking in Public - Albert Mohler

    Politics: Try Steve Deace. He's a constitutional conservative broadcasting out of Iowa. Besides the fact that he's an outspoken Christian (and a Reformed SBC member), he gives awesome commentary on politics.

    Apologetics: Try Apologia Radio. It's a great apologetics/theology podcast with good topics and guests. Plus they like beards, and you sir, have a glorious one.

    A ton of great suggestions I will be looking into as well
    I usually go to sermon audio and have two favorites Paul Washer and Leonard Ravenhill. This gives me much more to check out.

    I also enjoy the In Our Time podcasts. A non-Christian friend turned me on to them with the Foxe's Book of Martyrs episode.

    Others have already mentioned this, but I'll repeat. The Dividing Line and the podcasts put out by Reformed Forum are a must. Renewing Your Mind by R.C. Sproul is great as well. For general news (and from a Christian perspective) I listen to The Briefing by Al Mohler.

    Andrew, do you have an iPhone or iPod? I have some suggestions via the iTunesU app. RTS has a lot of lectures available through that, and there are some great political/economic lectures from the Mises Institute.

    There are some great ones in the archive...and at least I know you guys in the USA can get them.

    I mean not to embarrass or offend anyone here at all but the past couple of months I've began to listen to more "little guy" pastors. They are not the big names on the radio but they are ever bit as profitable. I won't mention any names. D.A. Carson's memoir about his late pastor-father help to strengthen my love and appreciation for the pastors of our church as well the other local pastors without best sellers. I have a place for Keller, Sproul, Trueman and Carson, etc but a growing place for the laboring but largely unheard of(except for maybe here).

    Andres Puritan Board Doctor

    Yes, I have an iPhone. That's what I'm currently using to listen to all my podcasts, sermons, music, etc. I have the regular "Podcasts" app, but I am now downloading the iTunes U app as well. Thanks!!
  28. Andres

    Andres Puritan Board Doctor

    I too enjoy and am greatly encouraged by listening to lesser-known pastors. If you don't mind, I'd love for you to mention names of some you're enjoying. Thanks.

    I am reluctant to do this. Three immediately pop into mind. Alan Strange, Bruce Buchanan and Shawn Mathis. Most recently I've enjoy Pastor Mathis' series on resisting tyrants. It's been a while on the other two but Dr. Strange had an interview with Reformed Forum and a few months ago did a series at the same time with Darryl Hart this is on youtube. I am looking forward to listening to them. What's Pastor Buchanan been up to??
  30. Andres

    Andres Puritan Board Doctor

    Why? I don't want you to do anything you don't feel comfortable doing, but if you are benefiting from listening to some of the ministers who happen to be members on the board, then I don't see any reason not to share with others.
