Hello all, I would like to know what are some good podcasts to listen to. I have an interest in theology and both Christian and secular history. Please share your favorites and why you like them. I recently started a new job with a fairly long commute and would like to try listening to some good podcasts.

Look up Mike Duncan, History of Rome. He also has a good one on the French revolution and the American revolution. Haiti too, I think. Or try Hardcore History. Some very fascinating coverage on there.

Not sure if this is what you are looking for, but I know Weavertown Amish Mennonite church has their sermons archived as podcasts and I think some other churches do as well. If you'd like to go more in depth, some courses on church history as well as secular history are available through iTunesU, which is similar to podcasts but it's free university lectures. I don't have any in particular that I like, but I'm sure there are good ones on there.

Hardcore History (which is not as sensationalistic as it might initially look/sound) and Duncan's podcasts (The History of Rome and Revolutions) are all excellent. Some others you might like—

Econtalk. Wide-ranging conversations with an open-minded libertarian economist.
12 Byzantine Rulers. An overview of Byzantine history.
The City of Man. Two thoughtful evangelicals, one a progressive and one a conservative, talk about politics. The focus is on political philosophy and history more than day-to-day partisan issues.

Also a great suggestion. I've listened to several of the Yale Open Courses. As I recall, Introduction to Ancient Greek History, The American Revolution, The Civil War and Reconstruction Era, and Introduction to Political Philosophy were especially good. Carl Trueman's Reformation course is fascinating as a glimpse into Reformed perspectives on church history. He doesn't talk much about the Anabaptists because he doesn't find them very interesting. This offends me. :x :P

Naturally, I can't vouch for the appropriateness of all the material I've linked to. Use discretion, etc.

Thanks for the replies. I have just finished the first podcast in the Blueprint for Armageddon series by Hardcore History and I am definitely planning on listening to more of these. Very interesting! :up:

Frodo, here's some I've listened to: (A second to the Hardcore History as well)
Malcom Gladwell's Revisionist History His opinions or his opinion trajectory may not always be your taste, but the stories are fascinating (and he has some Menno background and this actually comes out sometimes)

The Phil Vischer podcast - evangelical but without the far-right politics... a little silly and acculturated at times but some good conversations at times around current church/culture issues and principled conservative evangelicals not on the trump train. (A breath of fresh air imo)

I find his podcast super interesting - especially given the peripheral Mennonite connection.

I think his Generous Orthodoxy episode is terribly sad. And the “moral” of the story is actually immoral.
It’s been a while since I heard it, but it’s about a Mennonite minister in his old age choosing to split his church because he decides to side with his homosexual son over truth. And Malcom seems to applaud this.
