Many years ago I discovered the mental benefits of listening to talk radio. You learn, you process, you think critically as you hear what the host, the guest, or the caller has to say. It’s informative and fun. When I got my first Zune in 2009 and started the switch to digital music, I naturally discovered podcasts. There is so much good material out there and so little time to listen. Here are some of the podcasts I have found the most beneficial, insightful, edifying, instructive, or informative for the mind and soul.

  • The Briefing
  • The White Horse Inn
  • The Dividing Line
    • A semiweekly one-, one and a half-, or two-hour podcast covering apologetic issues from doctrine to church history to cultural objections to God’s word. Dr. James White, a scholar, experienced debater, and Christian apologist, often critiques speeches or debates line by line and takes phone calls. Common subjects include Calvinism, Islam, Roman Catholicism, homosexuality, the Trinity, and textual criticism.

  • Let My People Think
    • A weekly 30-minute podcast delivered by Dr. Ravi Zacharias. These programs “seek to explore issues such as life’s meaning, the credibility of the Christian message and the Bible, the weakness of modern intellectual movements, and the uniqueness of Jesus Christ.”

    • Check out other RZIM podcasts too, including Just Thinking (which is only 15 minutes) and Ask Away.
  • Stand to Reason
  • Thinking in Public
    • A weekly or fortnightly hour-long podcast featuring interviews with those who are thinking about and shaping the culture and contributing to the cultural dialog. This is a wonderfully educational program. Dr. Mohler does not limit his interviewees to Christians, but respectfully engages academics of all kinds in conversation about culture, past or present.

  • Think Biblically
    • A weekly podcast that offers Christian perspectives on some of the most significant issues facing today’s church and culture. In each episode, hosts Scott Rae and Sean McDowell — professors at Biola University’s Talbot School of Theology — draw upon biblical wisdom and insights from guest experts as they explore how Christians can thoughtfully and faithfully engage with cultural trends and current events.

  • Stand to Reason
    • With Greg Koukl. They say, “Our purpose is to help Christians think more clearly about their faith and to help them make an even-handed, incisive, yet gracious defense for classical Christianity. Released every Wednesday and Friday.”
