5 Podcasts You Should Listen to in 2016

PodcastsI really enjoy listening to podcasts. It makes commuting enjoyable for me as it is almost like reading a book. I listen to a number of podcasts, not all of them religious, and I appreciate the diversity. Here are five podcasts that I think you might enjoy.

  1. History of Philosophy Without Any Gaps – This podcast by Peter Adamson is one of the most comprehensive histories of philosophy that I have come across. He is not rushing to finish, so there is plenty of time to meet almost everyone.
  2. History of the Crusades – The Crusades are some of the most misunderstood events in European and Middle Eastern history. Sharyn Eastaugh does a fantastic job of navigating through this confusing times.
  3. History of WWII – I have been interested in the Second World War for a long time and I was excited to find a podcast dealing with this important event. I really enjoy Ray Harris, Jr.’s content and style.
  4. Problogger – I don’t just want to be a better pastor and apologist, I want to be a better blogger. The best resource I have found is this podcast by Darren Rowse. While the podcast is not aimed at Christian blogs, Rowse is a former pastor.
  5. Unbelievable? – It is easy enough to get people to present the Christian perspective on an issue but this podcast allows people of different worldviews to dialogue and interact. Justin Brierly is gifted at moderating these discussions.

I recommend each of these five podcasts. But I can’t resist recommending one more podcast and that is mine. If you are interested, you are welcome to visit Hope’s Reason: A Podcast of Discipleship.

  1. Your problogger link is a dupe to the WWII podcast.

    Good list. You seem to be a history buff. Can I assume you’ve heard of/listen to Dan Carlin’s Hardcore History podcast?

      1. Ahh… this is not related to any TV show I am aware of. The guy does massive research then drops a 3.5-4.0hr podcast every few months. He just wrapped up a 16-20hr arc war in the early 20th century. Well worth the time.
