Here’s something I’m pretty sure you don’t know about me yet: I have a podcast* coming out tomorrow, Monday, November 22.
It's a podcast I'm producing under the auspices of Yale Bible Study. Every Monday, two professors from Yale Divinity School (where I earned my MDiv and am still a student) talk for about 10 minutes about one of the lectionary readings from the coming Sunday. It’s based on the Revised Common Lectionary, the schedule we follow for our Sunday Scripture readings.
I’m the host, and I’m also one of the producers of the podcast: recording and editing it, as well as setting up the professors with each other and with their texts. We’ve been working on this project for about 2.5 years, so I’m extremely excited for the world to finally hear these episodes!
The hope is that preachers will use this as part of their sermon preparation (looking at you, lay preaching crew!) and that it will be helpful for anyone following the lectionary—which includes every regular attender of Episcopal Churches.
The podcast is called Chapter, Verse, and Season.
At that link, you can read more, subscribe, or listen to the trailer of our first season and episodes when they come out. It’s available wherever you get your podcasts: Apple, Google Play, Stitcher, Spotify, and more on the way.
Thank you for indulging me this opportunity to share something I'm working on. And if you do listen, please let me know! I’d love to know what you think.
*In case you’re not familiar: podcasts are a type of internet media, with new episodes that come out regularly on a given topic. They tend to be audio-only (though some have a video component). Think of them like radio shows, which you can download on your phone and listen to whenever you want. Most of the popular national radio shows like This American Life are also available to download as podcasts.
