On Being. | Krista Tippet podcast leads the way for discussions about spirituality, peacemaking, and creating a more beautiful humanity. 

The Robcast | From the "backhouse," Rob Bell dishes out candid sermons, thoughts on Christian spirituality without all the religious language, and interviews with interesting people doing cool things in the world. 

Homebrewed Christianity | In this long-standin theology podcast, Tripp Fuller interviews Christian scholars and authors and usually gets in the theological weeds around the important issues facing culture and the Church.
