For some time, I've been working on a project with a friend of mine. We started a podcast.
I listen to a lot of podcasts. I love podcasts. I listen to a lot of preaching podcasts, which are great. But sometimes, I want to listen to something that isn't preaching, but is still redemptive. I enjoy my tech podcasts, and my nerd podcasts, but I want more gospel-centered conversations in my media diet.
So, in conversations with my friend, we decided to start work on a new venture. Ryan has a great platform established, and we decided to build this into his established brand. If you're interested, you can find all episodes of the Apostolic Voice Podcast here. The first two episodes (Ep 1 and Ep 2) are an interview with me, where Ryan allows me to share my stories of idiocy and redemption. In Episode 3, we interview Pastor Steve Showalter about his book, Escaping Fantasyland, and his testimony of overcoming an addiction to pornography. If you don't want to hear my story, this is a good place to start.
Our plan is to offer a variety of material - book reviews; interviews with authors, pastors, and evangelists; bible study tools; and to address issues, theological questions and errors, and other topics.
I use a new program for encoding the podcasts called Forecast, a free tool developed by Marco Arment. I like it a lot, and if you are a podcast producer (using MacOS), I recommend checking it out. If you're using iOS, I recommend checking out Overcast as a podcast player. It's my preferred app, and it's also developed by Marco Arment.
