Podcasts You Should Know Part 3

One of my favorite podcasts for its entertainment value (that also has all the substantive things I like in a podcast) is the Phil Vischer Podcast. If you grew up (or raised children) in the 90’s, you’re probably familiar with Vischer’s work from watching Veggie Tales. In his podcast, Vischer is joined by Christian Taylor and Skye Jethani in a panel discussion format. The issues they deal with could be categorized as cultural apologetics.

Some of the comments, particularly from Jethani, but Vischer as well, can seem provocative on the face of it. However, if you carefully consider what they have to say, even if you don’t agree with them completely, they often have a point. They are not shy about calling out the “crazy uncles” of American Christianity.

As long as we’re talking about Vischer’s work, another project worth noting (free plug here) is “What’s In the Bible,” *DING!* a DVD series which presents a survey of the entire Bible using puppetry. Vischer does all the puppetry and all the voices for the characters. It is not a dumbed-down, cutesy Sunday School curriculum.  It has great information from which adults can benefit, and it is entertaining for kids and grown-ups. (If you listen to the podcast, you will get the “DING” reference.)

The podcast is free, but if you like the work Vischer does, then you can support him here.
