My podcast on “Religion for Life”

October 9, 2015 • 9:15 am

Some time ago I was interviewed by the amiable John Shuck, a Presbyterian minister in Oregon whose show, “Religion for Life,” is broadcast on several stations throughout the U.S. It’s not a Bible-thumping pro-religion show, though, but a thoughtful examination of the intersection of faith with other spheres of life.

Some time ago, John interviewed me about Faith versus Fact, and, though I haven’t heard the podcast, I remember it as a good discussion. It wasn’t at all confrontational, which is what I expect when talking to a minister (and I don’t avoid such clashes when they come). Anyway, John let me know that our conversation is now being broadcast, and will also be archived as a podcast after being broadcast on the radio between tomorrow and next Wednesday. It will go up as a one-time podcast this Sunday, and the archived link will probably be here. Below are the stations and links where (and when) the show will air:

Sunday, October 11th at noon on WEHC, 90.7. (WEHC 90.7 Emory, VA)
Sunday, October 11th at 2 pm on WETS, 89.5. (WETS 89.5 Johnson City, TN)
Monday, October 12th 1 pm on WEHC, 90.7. (WEHC 90.7 Emory, VA)
Wednesday, October 14th at 6:30 pm on WEHC, 90.7.(WEHC 90.7 Emory, VA)
Via podcast 11 am Pacific, Sunday October 11th.

I haven’t heard it yet, and will be traveling, but let me know how it goes.

  1. Hi Prof CC – by the look of it it’s John Shuck, going by their website, not John Shook who is someone quite different!

    1. Yes, It is Shuck. Appears the podcast on Sunday 11 Oct. is 11:00 pacific so would be 9am Chicago time.

      1. I recommend you sign up for the podcasts (links are on John’s website). It is a wonderful program – not even a little bit “just for Christians” and worth listening to weekly. Sign up and you will get a reminder when each new podcast is created.

  2. I heard the podcast yesterday on WETS. It was well done, and it’ll be posted on the “Religion for Life” podcast site by Monday. I got a good laugh after Shuck said, “Galileo put God out of a house, and Darwin put him out of a job,” followed by Coyne saying, “He may be out of a job, but a lot of people are giving him welfare.”
    First Presbyterian of Elizabethton, John’s former church devotes a month to celebrating Evolution Sunday. Non-believer’s are always welcome.

    1. Excellent interview! As in, extremely well conducted interview — conducted by someone who is clearly familiar with his guest’s work, thinks his guest’s ideas are interesting, important, and worth a platform for being clearly presented.

      Novel concept for an interviewing style, actually — ask questions and stop talking while guest answers!
