Here's a weekly podcast that was recently brought to my attending and often discusses interesting topics "Research on Religion." It is sponsored by Baylor University and hosted by Tony Gill, who is a political science professor at University of Washington. You can access it through iTunes or at the podcast's website. Some of the more interesting ones include:
- Philip Jenkins on Global Christianity
- Rodney Stark on the Crusades
- Robert Coote on the 27 Most Popular Hymns & Amazing Grace
- Brad R.E. Wright on Christian Stereotypes
Warning: Many of these podcasts challenge the accepted wisdom, so be prepared to hear things that you may not have heard before.
