My goal is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
— Colossians 2:2-3
For the Lord gives wisdom;
from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.
— Proverbs 2:6

From Pastor Jason:

"I often get asked where I learn about all the strange things I seem to know. My number one source of intellectual stimulation is podcasts.  Podcasts are like radio shows but that you can download or stream to play whenever you want.  To me the benefit of these over television shows, news, or documentaries is that because there isn't the need to have video or to fill time, podcasts can go more in depth and take a more nuanced approach. Also they can cover a wider range of topics and have more niche focuses.  The benefit over books is that podcasts can be taken to go and can be listened to while driving or while doing another activity like cooking or exercising.

I think podcasts can be very useful for families and for high school students.  For one, they can be used as points of shared interest.  You can listen to them as you drive together and talk about the ideas presented.  Secondly, I think it can help high school students to discover their interests and passions.  Finding a podcast that you love about a topic you didn't realize was fascinating to you can open up a whole world of new learning.  Especially with so many high school students wondering what they want to study or where God is taking them, going through podcasts can be an easy to help discover the interests that God has given to you.  For this reason I have separated the podcasts by topics.

A good way to use this is to challenge yourself or your children to listen to the podcasts of things that they are interested in. For instance, many young people think they want to go into video game design.  But if you get bored by "Longform" or "Cane and Rinse", then maybe it's not actually something for you.  On the other hand, you may find a big idea in "RadioLab" or "TED Radio Hour" and suddenly discover a whole new pursuit.  Maybe you get hooked on "Inside Science" or "Memory Palace" and want to pursue a career in research or history.

So I hope that in these podcasts you and your families will find new wonders of God to explore and pursue."

Big ideas

Radiolab

Radiolab is a show about curiosity. Where sound illuminates ideas, and the boundaries blur between science, philosophy, and human experience.

An idea is the one gift that you can hang onto even after you've given it away. Welcome to TED Radio Hour hosted by Guy Raz – a journey through fascinating ideas: astonishing inventions, fresh approaches to old problems, new ways to think and create. Based on Talks given by riveting speakers on the world-renowned TED stage, each show is centered on a common theme – such as the source of happiness, crowd-sourcing innovation, power shifts, or inexplicable connections – and injects soundscapes and conversations that bring these ideas to life.

There are a lot of things out in the world that sound boring, but when you dig in deeper, you discover that actually, they are fascinating. Take for example, mold. Gross, right? Boring, definitely. But did you know that mold is more closely related to humans than to plants? And that mold has the ability to control the minds of certain living organisms, making them leave their homes to go where the mold wants to go.  Did you know that penicillin comes from mold and that the researchers who discovered this mold’s medical powers valued it so much that as World War II approached, they dusted the inside of their clothing with spores so that if something happened to their lab, the fungus would survive? Surprisingly Awesome is a show full of stories like this. Stories about things that sound totally boring, but turn out to be totally awesome.

Fresh Air with Terry Gross, the Peabody Award-winning weekday magazine of contemporary arts and issues, is one of public radio's most popular programs. Each week, nearly 4.5 million people listen to the show's intimate conversations broadcast on more than 450 National Public Radio (NPR) stations across the country, as well as in Europe on the World Radio Network.

Though Fresh Air has been categorized as a "talk show," it hardly fits the mold. Its 1994 Peabody Award citation credits Fresh Air with "probing questions, revelatory interviews and unusual insights." And a variety of top publications count Gross among the country's leading interviewers. The show gives interviews as much time as needed, and complements them with comments from well-known critics and commentators.

It began when New York journalist and author Stephen J. Dubner went to Chicago to write about award-winning economist Steven D. Levitt for The New York Times Magazine. Dubner had been reluctant to take the assignment (he was in the middle of writing a book about the psychology of money). Levitt was reluctant to be shadowed by a journalist (but his mother loved the Times Magazine, so he gave in). The article came out, and led to an unexpected partnership. Levitt and Dubner wrote Freakonomics, a book about cheating teachers, bizarre baby names, self-dealing Realtors, and crack-selling mama’s boys. They figured it would sell about 80 copies. Instead, it took up long-term residency on the Times best-seller list, and went on to sell more than 5 million copies in 40 languages. Then they wrote SuperFreakonomics. It too became a worldwide best-seller. Together, the books have sold 7 million copies worldwide. A lot of other stuff happened, too. A blog. A documentary film. Jon Stewart and Beauty and the Geek! Lectures. A pair of pants. A radio show. Not bad for a partnership born of such profound reluctance. In 2014, Levitt and Dubner published their third book, Think Like a Freak — a blueprint for an entirely new way to solve problems. Dubner and Levitt’s latest book, When to Rob a Bank, is a curated collection of blog posts from Freakonomics.com, which has been called “the most readable economics blog in the universe” (which, frankly, isn’t saying much).

StartUp is a podcast series about what it’s really like to get a business off the ground. In Season 1, Alex Blumberg told the story of launching this business, Gimlet Media, a podcast network. In Season 2, Alex is joined by co-Host Lisa Chow, to follow an entirely new company. The business is Dating Ring, a dating company that combines technology with old-fashioned matchmaking. The founders are women in their 20s, outsiders in the male-dominated world of Silicon Valley. And over the 10 episodes, we’ll take you inside that world. Some of the challenges they face are different from Alex’s: founder disagreements, hellish fundraising, and sexism. But just like the Season 1 story, theirs is also a transparent account of something that happens everyday in America, but we rarely get to see firsthand: starting a business.
