Hosted by WORLD News Group's Warren Cole Smith, Listening In features extended conversations with newsmakers and thought leaders.
“Our goal is to explore topics as thoughtfully as possible,” says WORLD Radio Executive Producer Nick Eicher. “It’s more like NPR’s Fresh Air or public television’s Charlie Rose, but with an objective Christian perspective.”
The Listening In podcast is posted each Friday. (The program is available to radio stations via FTP download. For technical details, contact: Jonathan Bailie at firstname.lastname@example.org.)

A conversation with singer-songwriter Ellie Holcombe
Ellie Holcomb is a singer-songwriter and her first album, Sure as the Sun, released last year to rave critical reviews, as well as commercial success, hitting both Billboard’s Christian and secular charts. On the one hand, that’s not surprising. She comes by her musical chops honestly. She is the daughter of legendary Christian music producer and industry executive Brown Bannister, and she was road-hardened by touring with her husband’s band Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors, which itself has achieved significant musical success.
