List of Christian podcasts that aren’t sermons

Recently I’ve been looking for podcasts to subscribe to for my commute time. I’m most interested in the intersection of social and spiritual things, aka people & relationships, which isn’t as popular as topics like technology or cooking or celebrity gossip.

In the Christian podcasting world, most podcasts are sermons or teachings or devotionals or church tech; that’s okay for the masses. I’m looking to check the “other” box, not so much what books tag as “Christian life”; just Christians (and Christian-friendly people) talking about a faith-informed life.

[update Jan.2014: see the Christian Podcast Directory for a big list of (120+) Christian podcasts that aren’t sermons]
[update Jul.2016: also see The Big List of Christian Podcasts curated by @ClayKraby]

Here’s a list of active podcasts I’ve found so far — if you know others, please do let me know:

Aside: the term “podcast” has been co-opted for audio files posted on a website. Podcasts I’m listing here are those that can be subscribed via iTunes or a podcatcher app (cf. Google Listen or Podkicker on Android), and are recorded & produced only for the podcast show, not recordings from other broadcast media. This list isn’t for dormant podcasts (cf. The Nick & Josh Podcast, Wired Parish), only those that are actively updated, like weekly.

  5. I am so grateful that you took the time to share this list of non-sermon Christian podcasts with your readers! I’ve been looking for various Christian podcasts for some time, as I think there’s a lot to be learned from that format, but I was coming up short. I can’t wait to check out some of the podcasts that you mentioned. Thanks again!

  6. I’ve kept this article bookmarked since it first ran because I’ve wanted to do something similar on my blog, but simply never got to it. But for what it’s worth, today I finally got around to compiling a list of things that are sermons.

    You can leave this or delete it, but there’s a few on here I’m sure that you may not have heard of.
