Rob Bell's Podcast Inspires Sometimes

 Rob Bell

Rob Bell

I started listening to Rob Bell's podcast in January. It is hit and miss. Sometimes I find myself tuning it out as Rob gabs on and on. He is best when he interviews someone. The guests are from varied perspectives--entertainment, theology, art, and more.

I am listening to his April 25, 2016* podcast with Krista Tippett. I have featured her on this blog before because I love her podcast On Being. She has a new book, Becoming Wise. I have ordered it but I have not read her book yet. She has a new podcast to accompany it. Both of her podcasts are available on Stitcher. 

I have only found Rob Bell's RobCast on https://robbell.com. Sometimes I am frustrated listening to it because Rob Bell sometimes gets in the way of the guest, or goes on and on about himself. I guess a lot of people like him so much, they like these episodes. I find them annoying and find Rob Bell comes off as precocious. 

He is best when he interviews Elizabeth Gilbert--except for the excess giggling. The interview with Krista Tippett is solid. Look at the guests on the website and dive into the one that looks most promising to you.

*I realize this appears as though I am writing about the future. This blog was actually completed in April 2016 but I cannot figure out how to change the publication date! Uffda SquareSpace.
