Where in the Podcast World Should BioLogos Go?

If you listen to other podcasts, chime in with somewhere you would like to see a BioLogos guest! (bonus points for recommending a topic).

Interview style, centered on conversation, similar tone (not aggressive or debate-y).

Probably just a very specific to me recommendation lol.

I listen to three Christian podcasts that are also tied into horror.

  1. Creepy Cove Community Church by Peter Law who as a pastor and is a author. He does a sermon style church service podcast. I’m pretty sure he’s in the same mindset as many here concerning sexuality, science and so on. It’s really fun to me.
  1. I think this guy is probably not as on Baird with the same views in general here but when it’s brought up , and when I brought it up, he remained polite and ambiguous and more along the lines of God cares more about the heart not the intellectualism of understanding complex and debated subjects mindset. So he’s kind about it. He was , and maybe still is , a pastor and I think a film historian. His podcasts are mostly with his two kids and they discuss horror films , old and new, and being up faith in it. It’s called “ 10xTheTerror “.

It had one of the same guests as BioLogos did in one episode. I forget which one. I think I made a thread about it.

  1. I just recently begin listening to this one ad part of my approach to continue studying arguments from queer theologians. One of the hosts is queer. I’m not positive of why genders is used. They discussed something about it but I was driving and barely paying attention. But they discuss a wide range of things with many guests all entered around horror and Christianity. It’s called “ Horror Nerds at Church “.

Since the bulk of horror is often used as social commentary it’s pretty easy to use it for any subject. Want to discuss racism, gender, evolution, how people handle infectious diseases, or whatever there is probably a correlating horror film. Horror is often good vs evil and the evil almost always requires the love of several people holding the together to overcome it. So it’s sort easy to connect to anything.

I’m a fan of Iain McGilchrist but rather than interviewing him when he is a die in the wool agnostic, go after one of the Christian scholars interested in his ideas. The ideas themselves are Christian friendly short of conversion.

Do you plan to share any of these talks here? Probably not possible until it’s old news. Have you seen any of the ones that happened 5/14?

Well this was interesting.

In this video taken from an earlier season of the same series as the upcoming episode with Francis Collins and Richard Dawkins, the woman Sharon Dirckx who will sit across from McGilchrist in the episode to be aired on June 17, converses about consciousness with Philip Goff. She likes bringing in the Christian WV to explain where consciousness comes from while Goff is content with panpsychism. At the very end he basically feels as I do that if an explanation can only take us as far as attributing the origins to something whose origins we can say nothing about … how are we any better off? So now I really look forward to hearing this season’s episode with her and McGilchrist. She comes at it from neuroscience so they will have that in common, though his knowledge derives more from reading the literature than in carrying out research of his own. Still if they get into talking origins of consciousness I do think they’ll wind up closer at the end than these two.

We have objective evidence of the Christian God’s providential interventions into his children’s lives. We also have a case where the individual did not want God’s intervention, but multiple millions of children around the world and their families are better off because he acceded to it.

(You don’t have to be a Christian to help – you could give a sewing machine, or a goat. ; - )
 

You can save your wise cracks for someone else. I’ll be ignoring your witless, redundant posts.

I would really like to see more conversations with neuroscientists. maybe a second part with Newsome or someone else

WOW the horror podcast genre…not something I would have ever thought of :rofl:

Although Jim was on a You Have Permission episode about being terrified as a child about going to hell, so maybe that’s the same thing :rofl:

Maybe on Katelyn Beatty and Roxy Stone Saved by the City or Michael Bird and Aimee Byrd’s Birds of a Feather talks (maybe this is just YouTube) talking about inerrancy wars and approach to the Bible (it’s what his latest book is on). I also think you need to get Michael Bird to come on Language of God and talk about inspiration and inerrancy.

I was honestly a bit surprised to find 3 of them myself that was not focused on “ it’s evil it’s evil “. Especially the creepy cove and horror nerds group that occasionally brings up being able to trust science and dont let certain toxic versions of Christianity shame you form being yourself by isolating verses and weaponizing it. It’s been pretty helpful to me personally. It’s always amusing the amount of science accepting Christians in horror groups that pipe in here and there.
