The last decade or so has seen an explosion of podcasts. They may number in the tens of thousands, but I’m not certain. There are many, many good ones that would be worth our time. The antithesis is also true – there are many, many that are clearly not worth any of our time.
Here are five good podcasts. Undoubtedly there are more, but I’ll limit it to five (all of which I listen to regularly). Radio or television broadcasts aren’t included.
- The Dividing Line with James White. White is an elder at a Reformed Baptist Church in Arizona, debater, apologist, and author. White knows his stuff. There’s also a video of the podcast available. Podcasts are usually one hour long, and sometimes longer.
- The Briefing with Albert Mohler. Well-known Southern Baptist leader Mohler comments on the news from a biblical worldview. It’s well-done and thought-provoking. Podcasts are usually about 20 minutes in length.
- Apologia Radio with Jeff Durbin and friends. Durbin pastors Apologia Church in Tempe, Arizona. He has an interesting background, but don’t let that get in the way of what he’s saying. His commitment to Christ is contagious. Podcasts are usually one hour and fifteen minutes long.
- The Worldview in 5 Minutes. A roundup of the day’s news written by Pastor Kevin Swanson and presented by Adam McManus. The length of the podcast is five minutes, which should be obvious.
- 5 Minutes in Church History with Stephen Nichols. Nichols, the President of Reformation Bible College, presents a brief look at the people, places, and events that God has used to shape the church and history.
