A handful of podcasts






I listen to a lot of podcasts, and I’m always looking for new ones.  Here’s five good ones-  you can find them all on iTunes.

  • Christ in the Mountains.  This is the podcast of an Orthodox priest whose parish is in the Appalachians.  His blog is especially interesting.  He is a great fan of Lord of the Rings and has some terrific articles on this topic.  The best thing on his blog is his mp3 series comparing  Orthodoxy and other religious traditions.
  • Pilgrims from Paradise, from the author of the popular Thirsting for God in a Land of Shallow Wells,  Matthew Gallatin.   If you liked the book, you will enjoy the podcast, which focuses on Evangelical / Orthodox issues.
  • Speaking the Truth in Love.  Father Thomas Hopko’s podcast is authoratative and informative.  Fr. Thomas is a joy to listen to.  I can’t recommend this podcast enough!
  • History According to Bob. This podcast is produced daily by the relentlessly cheerful Bob Packett.  He has series on everything from the French Revolution to outlaws of the American West.  
  • The BBC History Magazine is chatty and informative.   Lots of British gushing over castles, battles and cathedrals.   Sometimes it’s a bit much, but always worth a listen.  (By the way, do you realize that if you have Windows Vista you can install a gadget on your desktop that gives instant access to the BBC?)

    Write to me for a digital(free) copy of “Tears on the Equator,” the story of an Orthodox Missionary and His African Matushka, and when you read it, send it to all those on your mailing list with a similar request.
    May The Most Holy Theotokos Bless us during her fast.
