Over the last few years I have grown to love podcasts. The amount of free content on the internet is amazing—you only need to know where to find it. I started with one or two a few years back, and now I am subscribed to 23 different podcasts. I don’t know very many people who can keep up with 23 podcasts, and it is even hard for me at times. Personally, I have found that my drive to and from work (25 minutes each way) can be a great time of learning. When I add all the rest of the times that I’m in the car, I end up listening to over six hours of great Christian thinkers every week. I can’t think of any better way to get 6 hours of great content a week for free! Many people would pay a lot of money at conferences to learn what these podcasts teach.

One of my listeners recently asked me what podcasts I would recommend for additional information, and so I created this list. I hope you find this resource helpful. Leave a comment below if I have left out any podcasts that you would recommend. I am always looking for new content.

My Top 5

This podcast is hosted by Greg Koukl from Stand to Reason. The purpose of this podcast is to help Christians think more clearly about their faith.

Defenders Podcast

The Defenders Podcast is Dr. William Lane Craig‘s Sunday school class on Christian doctrine and apologetics. It is a very in-depth look at the major Christian doctrines with times of teaching and a Q&A time. I started listening in October of 2014 when the new class started. Since then, he has done Foundations of Christian Doctrine (2 weeks), Doctrine of Revelation (10 weeks), Doctrine of God (21 weeks), and an Excursus on Natural Theology (34 weeks). He recently started the Doctrine of God: Trinity. Each episode is 30-40 minutes and is posted once a week.
