That’s the name of the radio news show that our friends at World Magazine launched a few months back.

Spearheaded by publisher Nick Eicher and his golden voice, it’s probably the closest thing to NPR by a distinctly Christian outlet right now.  Ken Myers is still doing fantastic work in his own space, but World is clearly stepping into a different niche.  And they are doing a great job of filling it.

They let me go on for a bit about Facebook Timeline, the recent offering from the social network.  I’m still learning radio, and I’m not sure it’s my best performance.  But you can hear me go on in typically idiosyncratic fashion, and perhaps find some edification there.

Let me know what you think in the comments.

  • Facebook as memento mori is an idea I can get behind. Funny how that works: in one sense, digital archives are far more permanent than physical information collections (because spread over multiple servers, etc.), but in another sense they look so much more fleeting, simply because they move and update so quickly.

  • But your post today is both hilarious and a little eery. I only had a few minutes last night to listen to the first part of your piece, but that was enough to first make me think “Holy cow – it’s a Christian NPR!!”, and then think ” He totally belongs on Ken Meyers’ show”. My husband and I have been subscribers to Mars Hill since before we were married, and his article in a Denver newspaper about cellphones and presence not only transformed my public cell phone habits, but sparked all those questions about the significance of the incarnation that found many answers in your book.

    Will wait to listen to the whole thing to comment further, but on facevalue I can’t believe anyone would take ultra-self-selected snippets to be representative of anything real. It would be RealityHistory, like RealityTV.
