Pop Goes the Culture: my favourite resource on culture

My favourite audio journal is from Mars Hill Audio.  So it was wonderful to see the profile given to it and it’s creator Ken Myers in the Weekly Standard.

Myers set out to create a resource where orthodox religious believer could engage intellectually wide-ranging topics.  Mark Knoll produced the now infamous summary work that ‘The scandal of the evangelical mind is that there is not much of an evangelical mind”.*  Myers has produced something that is contra to that experience for many Evangelicals.

For those familiar with UK output, the journal also reminds me of ‘In our Time’, but one for religious believers around similar cultural issues.

So nothing better for me than when I get a quite moment, or a car/train/plan journey to fire up my iPod/iPhone, grab a coffee and listen to Ken Myers lead the most stimulating conversations with writers on a huge range of cultural and faith issues.

When I dream of an extended holiday with no interruptions, I imagine my mornings filled with coffee and the Mars Hill Audio.
