What are you listening to?

I searched for a new phone this week not because I wanted to, circumstances required it. I dropped it, it shattered, and that’s the end of the iPhone 3 era for me. As I synced my new iPhone with iTunes, I took a few moments to review my list of subscribed podcasts. I listen to a variety of people on a regular basis. We all have sources of information – we read, listen, and subscribe to various outlets. It’s interesting to learn the listening habits of others. To what podcasts do you subscribe? Here’s a sampling of my current subscriptions:

  • Catalyst (Leadership resource) – It’s a great resource on Christian thought and ministry leadership ideas for those on the front lines.
  • HBR IdeaCast (Leadership/ Business Resource) – Good resource for business leadership with good application.
  • Hillsong Church (Brian Houston) – I really like his stories, simple approach, and enthusiastic presentation.
  • Idlewilde Baptist Church (Ken Whitten) – I really appreciate Ken, his ministry, and have a great deal of respect for him.
  • Insight for Living (Chuck Swindoll) – I have listened to Swindoll for years and appreciate his integrity, simplicity, and accuracy.
  • The Market Place of Ideas – An eclectic collection of cultural interviews with a bent for creativity.
  • Reflections (Ken Boa) – I appreciate Ken Boa’s textual approach as well as his approach to spiritual formation.
  • Memorial Baptist Church (Me) – Yes, I listen to myself for self-critique.
  • The Sherwood Podcast (Michael Catt) – I appreciate Michael, his integrity, and his passion for creativity in ministry.
