I love podCasts. I was never a fan of talk radio because I could never remember when shows were on or I didn’t have access to radios when I wanted to listen to a show. But, I got an iPod a little over a year ago. Then I discovered podCasts. I love these babies, it’s like on-demand talk radio where ever I go. Here are some of my favorite podCasts (all are available through iTunes and/or podcast alley).
Catholic Hack – I just discovered this one so I can’t describe it very well. (sqpn.com/category/educational/catholic-hack/)
Catholic Under the Hood – This is done by a Franciscan Priest who is a professor at a Franciscan University in Austria. He generally focuses on historical Catholic topics or differences between the Roman and Orthodox Churches. (sqpn.com/category/educational/catholic-under-the-hood/)
Christian, but not necessarily Catholic
Coffee Cup Aplogetics – The host doesn’t seem to be Catholic, but from listening to the show he really understands, and often speaks from, the Catholic stance. His topics focus on things you might get asked over a cup of coffee, so many of the issues he discusses aren’t specifically Catholic but are actually on areas where Catholics and Protestants do not differ. This is not released regularly though. (ccapologetics.wordpress.com/)
Please Convince Me – This is hosted by a “seminary graduate and cold case detective” (yes it’s one person). He runs a house church, I am not 100% certain what that means. He tends to do series, spending multiple weeks on a single topic. Many of his series focus on issues that are the same for all Christians. For example he just finished a series on the arguments for God, and is now doing a series on classical heresies. The show comes out every Sunday night or Monday morning. (pleaseconvinceme.com/)
This American Life – The radio show in podCast format. It’s an awesome show! (thisamericanlife.org/)
Hardcore History – Dan Carlin is an awesome show host and this show does series on historical events, usually wars. Right now he’s doing a series on WWII. This show comes out monthly – roughly (dancarlin.com)
Average Tom’s podCast – This is a politically centered podCast. Each episode generally does two segments on the same topic with the first being informational and the second being opinion. The third segment is a weekly history lesson. It’s a pretty cool podCast. (atp.enderswebdevelopment.com)
These are just my absolute favorites, I actually listen to about 20 podCasts. I constantly have one going in the background, even while I write this post.
Who are some of your favorites?
