OK we know Fr. Thomas Hopko PWNS . . .

Seriously, I've yet to hear an untrained person try to do 45+ minutes of what amounts to radio and be at ease as he is.

My internet is running OUT! And I would like to get some new material and trash whatever you think passes muster.

OK, first a positive shout:

Glory be to God by Fr. Stephen Freeman

The guy doesn't scream charisma. And it took me a few episodes to get over his rather coffee drip approach to speaking. He don't get fired up.

But he started with a general theme I think is important to knock out of Christians heads. He calls it the Two Story Universe.

He takes this important and absurd notion many Christians (I am looking at most of you) have about the nature of creation and guts it, episode by episode in a more pastoral than academic approach.

The episodes don't make you want to flee to the desert, yell at someone on OC.net, or find yet another book to research, but rather leave you reflecting on how seriously you take the Incarnational nature of reality and the reject the idea of the Two Story Universe.

Can't listen to many in a row. He just doesn't have the attention holding power. And that is OK. Fr. Stephen does an excellent job of weaving his insights and how they have had informed his life and might inform yours.

He's on a similar mission as some us, trying to take the Living God of the Hebrews out of the shadow of the god of Plato and Plotinus, but he does so in an unassuming, gentle, and very approachable and pastoral manner.

Highly recommended. Even to those who might find it wanting at first. Give it a few times from the beginning.

Now a Boo! After all, bad reviews bring in more attention.

One of the worst podcasts ever in content and delivery.

It is Orthodoxy for Ned Flanders or:

Our Life in Christ by I ain't taking the time to find out.

I knew I wrote something about it once here, so I am quoting me, back when I was young . . . Note the echoes of humility leaving me:


Dave,

While I have found their podcast to be somewhat informative, it is a bit grating and the shows become rather formulaic: Orthodox, chuckle, juridical, Western rational mindset, chuckle, Eastern mindset, oh boy, juridical, Fullness of the Church, chuckle, sola scriptura, baggage to unpack, chuckle, Scholasticism, juridical, chuckle, etc.

I know little about Orthodoxy, but even so, they make some rather incredible off-the-cuff statements which they would be hard-pressed to defend.

The show also is geared toward Evangelicals.

My favorite podcast for learning about Orthodoxy from AFR is "Speaking the Truth in Love" by Fr. Thomas Hopko.

FWIW.

Wello, aside from Fr Hopko's podcasts which I like, especially the variety of topics covered, there are a few others I listen to. "At the Intersection of East and West", "Coffee Cop Commentaries", I particularly liked "In the Valley of the Shadow of Death", "Orthodixie", "Roads to Emmaus", and I found some of the podcasts in "Search the Scriptures" about the development of scripture, manuscript traditions, etc to be useful.

And FWIW, these are our Fathers too, you know.

Search the Scriptures with Dr. Jeannie Constantinou

http://ancientfaith.com/podcasts/searchthescriptures

I know some people complain about her speaking style, that it's like she's talking down to you, but I find it very crisp and direct. She does a topic by topic Bible study, right now she's on Elijah. I like that she tackles topics you wouldn't necessarily find in your average Bible study such as whether Solomon ultimately repented of his sin and how the Fathers disagree on it.

That's one of her most valuable services, in fact, connecting the passage she is discussing with Patristic commentary, especially Saint John Chrysostom. And most importantly, her lectures are always very Christocentric.

My only point against her is I wish she would touch on the original languages more. I know some people won't like the "basic" character of much of what she says (the podcast is called Bible study for busy people). But as someone who has a history of focusing too much on the complex and esoteric perhaps at the expense of more basic things I think it's important to just stop once in a while and feed on the pure milk of the Word.

Roads from Emmaus with Father Andrew Stephen Damick

I really can't praise Fr. Andrew enough. If I ultimately wind up becoming Orthodox, he'll definitely be one of the people most responsible, especially for making clear to me St. Ignatius and the other early Fathers' beliefs in the Real Presence and other Orthodox doctrines, both in this thematic podcast and in his superb Orthodoxy and Heresy.

He also has a very precise and easy to listen to speaking voice.

I agree with you, orthonorm, regarding Fr. Stephen Freeman (good review, btw!). His is one of the few AFR podcasts that I still download from time to time. I appreciate that his podcasts/sermons are short, pastoral, and sincere.

I have also enjoyed many of The Illumined Heart interviews with Kevin Allen. He has interviewed converts from Buddhism, Hinduism, and the occult. He's also interviewed Fr. Seraphim Rose's spiritual son: Fr. Damascene, the author of The Mountain of Silence: Kyriacos C. Markides, and many other interesting guests. I recommend going through some of the archives.

God I wish I could listen to her.

It ain't just that she speaking down, it is an affectation which is put on. It is overly enunciation for an American. Dollars to donuts she was on "speech" team in HS or the like.

What she would probably give her left arm for is . . . I can't remember what smart people call it, but it something certain folks in America learn in certain social circles and schools, and is dying out. A mixture of Received Pronunciation, Mid-Atlantic, with a touch of Southern Aristocratic drawl.

Had a Classics Professors from Yale who attempted to speak like the above all the time and obviously came to it too late in life. I had to drop her class.

Anyway Jeannie ain't even doing that, she is over-enunciating. It is odd and off-putting and anyone with an ear for the American tongue can hear it. Wish she didn't. Cause her content is great if at a slow speed, a really slow speed.

Maybe I'll try it again.

I like Fr. Andrew, who did the Orthdoxy and Heterodoxy podcasts, and he is also doing Roads to Emmaus now, but that hasn't been updated in a while.

Also, I like Faith and Philosophy with Clark Carlton, even though he comes across as a smug, sniffling weasel of a guy, like he knows everything. Some of the episodes are more like rants by talk show hosts, and everything that he does is scripted/pre-written, which can get a little too much like a audiobook for my taste, but beneath all of that, he really does have some good ideas. He really hasn't been doing much with it over the last couple of years, but every once and a while he'll throw an episode up. But there's a lot of good stuff on there from the older years and each episode is only like 10 to 15 minutes long, so you move through them pretty quickly.

Her recent podcasts have all been in the style of a university setting, but going into more depth since its an Orthodox audience. Still being in college, I guess I like that more, but I can see how it can be off-putting to some people. But she definitely is a nice, reachable person. I contacted her while in Greece because I knew she did the podcast on Revelation and I had concerns about some things (mainly related to claims made by my Old Calendarist friend) and she helped clear them up for me really well!

If I see a TV show at someone's house and find myself getting into it. I stop and start from the beginning of the show.

Actually, he has also interviewed my Priest IIRC.

If you are referring to Orthodoxy and Heterodoxy, I guess . . .

Seems popular among some of the converts and inquirers.

Rather basic and dry to me.

What is his Roads from Emmaus like? Thematically and the like.

I'm just glad that there is also a home in Orthodoxy for soulless, greedy Libertarians like Clark and me. laugh

One that hasn't been mentioned is "The Path" on Ancient Faith Radio. It is by Fr. Tom Soroka, and it basically is the gospel and epistle readings for every day, with commentary. It also has the lives of the Saints in there, and sometimes readings from the Fathers. They are all very brief, under 10 minutes, typically around 3-5 minutes long.

I will say that pretty much anything from Ancient Faith Radio and Orthodox Christian Network is good. I don't like to listen to Fr. Peter-Michael Preble or Archbishop Lazar Puhalo though. I'm not quite sure why I don't like to listen to Fr. Peter-Michael Preble though, I think it was because he seemed a bit too Western too me, but I don't remember. And well, don't get me started an Archbishop Lazar Puhalo... ugh...

If there is something I don't like, or that I don't agree with, I remove it immediately. So I would recommend everything in that list. Though I don't really know how to describe them, I just listen to them and what they have to say. Often I don't even pay attention to which specific podcast or person I'm listening to.

Man, Hammer Nail.

Couldn't put my finger on why I couldn't get around his delivery.

You described it perfectly.

Thank you for that alone. Nice job on picking up that it is pre-written, I was worried he WAS that robotic.

One that hasn't been mentioned is "The Path" on Ancient Faith Radio. It is by Fr. Tom Soroka, and it basically is the gospel and epistle readings for every day, with commentary. It also has the lives of the Saints in there, and sometimes readings from the Fathers. They are all very brief, under 10 minutes, typically around 3-5 minutes long.

I will say that pretty much anything from Ancient Faith Radio and Orthodox Christian Network is good. I don't like to listen to Fr. Peter-Michael Preble or Archbishop Lazar Puhalo though. I'm not quite sure why I don't like to listen to Fr. Peter-Michael Preble though, I think it was because he seemed a bit too Western too me, but I don't remember. And well, don't get me started an Archbishop Lazar Puhalo... ugh...

They way I listen to most podcasts, anything coming in under 20 minutes ends up being frustrating. I could see how the The Path would be awesome if my morning allowed me extra time to set aside to listen to an episode and contemplate it a bit.

I'll give it another go. Maybe skip chatting up some folks.

Strikes me a morning listening for some reason.

Thanks for pointing it out again.

No Problem, I stopped listening simply because I had listening to it for so long I started to hear things twice over again, and they usually rehash the readings and lives from previous years. However, the commentary is often fresh, even if the rest is just reused.
I need to listen to it again because its a good way to memorize lives of the saints.

Fr. Hopko's "Names of Jesus" series was quite good.

Honestly, after name seven or so, it was rough for me. And you know every hates that I sup at his feet. But I still 20 or more I haven't listened to.

A lot of redundancy, especially if you already have listened to more than 700 hours of the guy, more than a few times.

Roads from Emmaus with Father Andrew Stephen Damick

I really can't praise Fr. Andrew enough. If I ultimately wind up becoming Orthodox, he'll definitely be one of the people most responsible, especially for making clear to me St. Ignatius and the other early Fathers' beliefs in the Real Presence and other Orthodox doctrines, both in this thematic podcast and in his superb Orthodoxy and Heresy.

He also has a very precise and easy to listen to speaking voice.


If you are referring to Orthodoxy and Heterodoxy, I guess . . .

Seems popular among some of the converts and inquirers.

Rather basic and dry to me.

What is his Roads from Emmaus like? Thematically and the like.
Oh sorry. I meant to talk more about RFE.

It's a collection of long sermons. As the blurb says, "this podcast is dedicated to exploring the intersection between place, communion, and revelation, just as Christ’s communion with His disciples at the Biblical Emmaus revealed Him to them in the breaking of the bread. Episodes include meditations, sermons, classes, and lectures examining these and related themes."

So, he's done so far a three-parter on Orthodoxy and ecology called "This Holy Earth." Then he talked about evangelism, then a series about the mystery of Christ and how this relates to Scripture and how Christians relate to the world. Then he went through the themes of Martyrdom, Gospel, Salvation, Episcopacy, and Eucharist in the writings of Saint Ignatius.

So I'd say his basic aim is forming a full orbed sacramentarian worldview. There's more episodes coming.

You seem to know a fair bit about language ...

I dunno how "Aussie" I sound to you guys, but I understand that the way I speak is linguistically known as "Standard Australian". The great alternative to the Standard Australian pronunciation is the "Broad Australian" (think Steve Irwin, the crocodile dude). I've heard that linguists estimate Standard Australian will disappear entirely within a few generations.

So yes, we Australians probably should apologise for butchering the language, whether it belongs to you guys or Her Majesty.

I discussed your speech pattern with someone. You definitely have more RP than any Aussie I've met, but they have all been nutz and working class types.

I didn't want to give you a complete pass on not sounding Aussie, cause you do carrying an Aussie pronunciation.

You would pass as an English chap to most American ears I am sure, especially if you tried.

I became Orthodox in part because of 'Our Life in Christ." It's not only 'good for Evangelicals," as someone so casually dismissed it, but it is also helpful explaining the basics to agnostics: it worked for me. I'm here.

I also like 'Steve the Builder' for its sincerity and homely truth. Steve Robinson's angle on things is intensely personal and sometimes evokes tears. He is a devout Christian who never attained his aspirations in the church, and he makes you love him. He's a natural observer and writer.

Gotta watch out for Jeannie's theology; that's all I've got to say.

Anything by Father Andrew Stephen Damick is excellent. He's very organized, very substantial, and very much to the point. He is worth every minute of your time. I've listened to his podcasts more than anyone else's except those of Kallistos Ware. AF used to have much more Ware a few years ago, and, frankly, I miss him. He has a singsong voice that takes getting used to, but he is very illuminating.

Father Thomas Hopko alway gets my click. He's very informative and comes solely from the Orthodox perspective. Occasionally, he gets a little too discursive, and takes a little too long to get to the point, but I'll forgive him. He's taught me a lot.

I also have enjoyed listening to Dr. Steven Khouri's series "Glory to Thee" on Byzantine Chant---I'm in the choir--and wish he would do more. There's precious little chant training material online, and his ministry meets a real need. He should do videos.

Last--but not least--I mention father Patrick Henry Reardon's podcasts. He has an extensive background in Roman Catholicism, monasticism, and Orthodoxy, and is an excellent source of scriptural interpretation.

The Life in Christ derider would be me. But God works in mysterious ways.

I wish you would say more about Jeannie's theology. As the little I've heard her has been mainly in exegesis, where she was not lightweight.

Tried Steve the Builder. A bit too personalized for me. But maybe I need to give it another go.

Father Andrew Stephen Damick, not on my radar. Will check out.

Metropolitan Kallistos Ware's voice wears on me as well.

You see a theme here. I grew up on good radio.

If you ain't got the typical radio voice, better have some passion. Otherwise I fall asleep, not really I just irritated.

But I'll try to track some of his stuff down as well.

Can you amplify on "In the Valley of the Shadow of Death"? Never even heard of it.

Hey, Roads from Emmaus hasn't been updated as much lately. What's with the slacking?

What, are you paying for this or something?  Smiley  (And how many copies of my book have you bought, hmm?)

RFE is recordings of talks that I give, whether at various parishes or elsewhere or as classes at my own parish (mostly the latter).  As such, it follows both when I actually do such talks and also when I feel that the talks are in the right level of polish to be worth recording.  There will always be gaps, because such things tend to be seasonal.  I also happen to have a number of talks I've done this year which are kind of on the "edge" for me and so I want to work on them some more.

I'm actually teaching an Introduction to Orthodoxy series right now at my parish, but because it's mostly extemporaneous and because there is a lot of that kind of thing out there already, I'm not recording it.

Search the Scriptures with Dr. Jeannie Constantinou

http://ancientfaith.com/podcasts/searchthescriptures

I know some people complain about her speaking style, that it's like she's talking down to you, but I find it very crisp and direct. She does a topic by topic Bible study, right now she's on Elijah. I like that she tackles topics you wouldn't necessarily find in your average Bible study such as whether Solomon ultimately repented of his sin and how the Fathers disagree on it.


I also found it a bit hard at times, in the beginning. It doesn't bother me much now. I thought I heard her say in the intro episodes that she taught young children so it may have stuck and she doesn't realise it!  Smiley

Also, I like Faith and Philosophy with Clark Carlton, even though he comes across as a smug, sniffling weasel of a guy, like he knows everything. Some of the episodes are more like rants by talk show hosts, and everything that he does is scripted/pre-written, which can get a little too much like a audiobook for my taste, but beneath all of that, he really does have some good ideas. He really hasn't been doing much with it over the last couple of years, but every once and a while he'll throw an episode up. But there's a lot of good stuff on there from the older years and each episode is only like 10 to 15 minutes long, so you move through them pretty quickly.
I'm just glad that there is also a home in Orthodoxy for soulless, greedy Libertarians like Clark and me. laugh

Clark Carlton's podcast is the only one I listen regularly and really look forward for the next episode. There are many others that are good too, but I pick and choose among them.

I quite enjoy Jotting From The Holy Mountain with Fr. Meletios.  Rarely is there much theological content, but that is not the point of the podcast.  It is interesting to hear about the workings of a monastery and I really like Fr. Meletios' voice.  A Voice From The Isles is another one I listen to.  It is just weekly sermons, but it is something I can listen to in the car on the way to the office.  The sermons tend to be pretty good and I do like the Irish accents.

As far as Our Life In Christ goes...  I will defend it as it was the first Orthodox podcast I ever listened to.  There was some good stuff for me there as a post-Evangelical, presenting information at a rate that I could take it in.  It was an important source for me early on and I will always be thankful for it.  That being said, I got to a point where I couldn't do it anymore.  Good for a very specific demographic in a certain place at a certain time.  After breaking up with Evangelicalism, they were my rebound.

OK we know Fr. Thomas Hopko PWNS . . .

Seriously, I've yet to hear an untrained person try to do 45+ minutes of what amounts to radio and be at ease as he is.

My internet is running OUT! And I would like to get some new material and trash whatever you think passes muster.

Definitely go to www.Ourlifeinchrist.com and look through the archives listed by category on the right hand side of the Home Page. The two guys who do the show are layman and converts. They do a really good job. They have done shows on all the hot button topics. I know you will like them Norm.

I have to say I can't stand the introductory music and announcements in most of these podcasts. They seem to go out of their way to find men with the smarmiest voices in Christendom to introduce the material. It's always a relief that the priests and scholars who actually give the talk don't usually speak that way.

They seem to go out of their way to find men with the smarmiest voices in Christendom to introduce the material. It's always a relief that the priests and scholars who actually give the talk don't usually speak that way.
Yeah  laugh. Before he converted, the guy who does those was actually a director of the Moody Bible Institute's radio stations and even worked for Focus on the Family.

John Maddex is a great asset to Orthodox Christians in America and throughout the English-speaking world.  His natural speaking voice happens to sound very "radio."  I suppose some might regard the voice God gave him and others as "smarmy," but, like it or not, "radio voices" are the general standard for announcers.

I, for one, am extremely proud to be associated with him.  May God grant him many, many years.

I'm sorry, I didn't mean to give the impression that I don't like the guy. He's obviously a very dedicated man of God and I thankl God for his labors at AFR. I'm just not a fan of radio voices personally.

Search the Scriptures with Dr. Jeannie Constantinou

http://ancientfaith.com/podcasts/searchthescriptures

I know some people complain about her speaking style, that it's like she's talking down to you, but I find it very crisp and direct. She does a topic by topic Bible study, right now she's on Elijah. I like that she tackles topics you wouldn't necessarily find in your average Bible study such as whether Solomon ultimately repented of his sin and how the Fathers disagree on it.


I also found it a bit hard at times, in the beginning. It doesn't bother me much now. I thought I heard her say in the intro episodes that she taught young children so it may have stuck and she doesn't realise it!  Smiley


Yes, I remember her saying that in one podcast.

I like her a lot.  I like the fact that she gives us what to expect in an academic setting.  I remember her saying this is no longer Sunday School.  We no longer drink milk, we should be ready for the meat.  Even though she may sound like a mother talking to a child, she does have excellent content.  My choice for her comes from the fact that I feel I need to have a strong foundation on Scriptures.  I think Orthodox have a propensity to be weak in Scripture and more on history and Church fathers.  So choosing her was based on what subject I was looking for, and that was Bible study.  On top of that, due to my busy life and my large amounts of driving, and the fact that now I have an iPhone and a bluetooth transmitter for the car, it is enjoyable to use my time in driving listening to these podcasts.  I just wish there was a button on my bluetooth thingy that would go back one minute just in case I was paying more attention to the road or something.

Her theology?  Well, I don't question her theology at all.  I can understand how many of the things may be controversial, but in actuality, as I understand it, this is the type of stuff taught in seminaries, no?  And I feel I appreciate her more when she shares these views even if one may disagree with them simply because this is something you will have to deal with when talking to "scholars."  But I'll be honest, I never really heard anything she said that counts as "shady" or "unOrthodox."  She definitely does a wonderful job catering to a Patristic audience in my opinion.

Next, I also wanted to learn American History of Orthodoxy, so naturally Matthew Namee is my other podcast.  It's interesting though that my two choices of podcasts also have them not updating their podcasts for a while.  If ever I listen to all of them, then I'll look elsewhere.

I recently finished the last episode in her series and I must say that the series has been an eyeopener for me. The amount of information is amazing and I think I will have to listen to the whole series again!

I dont know what I would do without my portable player. After staring at a computer monitor all day, the idea of going home and reading the small print of a book is not very enticing. For me it is also a way to get motivated to get outside for a walk. A two hour walk is nothing when you listen to Dr Jeanne or other such podcasts.

Likewise I have not heard anything unOrthodox but at my level of understanding I am not sure I'm the best judge...

It's a pity we can't have her podcast transcribed. She apparently is worried about copyright issues with the material quoted. A shame. It is hard to search for things in audio files...

Thank you and quoted for agreement!

It may sound trivial to focus on the intros (and certainly no offense intended to the announcer, although I too wish he would bring it down a notch), but the music frequently sets a "negative tone" for me heading in (Speaking the Love in the Truth is an exception; it's relatively simple and short).  I usually feel like I'm getting ready to watch a Suze Orman lecture, or that the lady with the giant wig from the TBN network is going to appear.

Although the intro is not particularly horrible, A Word from the Holy Fathers, despite only being about 12-15 minutes long on average, has what seems to be a 6 minute introduction. I don't need to have Fr. Dcn. Mathew's CV read every time I tune in.  Otherwise, it's a very helpful series.

I appreciated her defense of St. John Chrysostom against accusations of anti-Semitism.  Not only did it better explain the meaning of St. John's frequently proof-texted writings, but it provided a helpful context for early Christianity.  The explanation seems particularly relevant, given the abundance of Judaizing trends we're seeing.

Oh sorry. I meant to talk more about RFE.

It's a collection of long sermons.

Talks, really.  Sermons that long would send the people into the snooze.  (If my 10-minute ones on Sunday morning don't already.)

I wonder how people were feeling as they stood through St. Gregory Palamas' second homily on the Entry of the Theotokos...

Certainly everyone has their own preferences and tolerance for voices, affectations, etc.  Of the AFR/OCN podcasts, the only ones I've been able to listen to consistently over the years are Fr. Hopko's.  I like the conversational, off-the-cuff style of his ramblings. 

I also really enjoy listening to Fr. Evan Armitas of St. Spyridon in Colorado.  Can't remember how I first discovered his podcasts, but he has a great way of relating and expressing himself.  But for those of you expecting a polished, radio-ready program, forget it.  Fr. Evan simply records his classes and sermons and posts them up.  Often you miss half of the discussion he's having with a parishioner in a class.  The audio is not the greatest.  But I gotta say he has a great way of teaching scripture that really connects.

God bless Fr Evan. His was the second religious podcast I ever listened to. Great stuff. Wonder why it isnt on AFR. Hopefully in a year or two Smiley they will move on to the Gospel of John. I especially like how he goes off on tangents. Those episodes are often some of the best ones!

Right. The cultural context she provides is extremely helpful. I remember once getting furious upon reading a part in the OT where God orders the old tribes to be destroyed. I wonder, how many reached that part, got angry, closed the book and never looked back?
