Here is a great resource to check out. It is called the “Overflow Show“. The Overflow show is a free 5 minute audio podcast for christians which teach us how to natuarally “overflow” into our non-Christian friends’ lives with the gospel. Each show is different and brings new and helpful ideas. Topics include: how to transition to talking about Jesus; intellectual answers to objections about our faith; and many more. From answering questions, to removing doubts, the Overflow Show seeks to give you confidence and connect you better with non-believers. You can visit the “Overflow Show” website to listen to the show and find out more information.
There are more and more tools popping up on the Internet to create and publish podcasts and vodcasts. Odeo is one of those companies that have some great tools to use. They make it easy to create and publish podcasts with their Odeo Studio. They have a new tool to create a video message and push it to a website called Hellodeo.
Are podcasts only a trend or will they continue to grow into something that will stay around awhile?
What do you think?
I have been doing a survey of some podcast directories to see what type of Christian podcasts are being produced. Here is what I found. If you are not familiar with Podcasting you can check out Rob’s series about it.
1. Podcast.net– Currently has 217 podcasts listed under the category of Religion & Philosophy- Christianity. Once you click on the category all the newest episodes appear on the right side. To access the podcasts you can either click on the listing which takes you to episodes page to listen or you can subscribe to the RSS feed for that category and get access that way.
2. Podcastalley.com– Currently has 278 podcasts under the category of Religion/Inspiration. At the time of this post they don’t break it down further than that, so there is a mixture of different types of religion podcasts. One of the top podcasts in that directory is the RevTim podcast.
3. Godcast.org– Currently has 13 podcasts listed.
4. Christianpodcasting.com– Currently has 30 podcasts listed.
