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 email@example.com.)
A conversation about the new film "Son of God"
Warren, who was recently in Southern California, sat down with Mark Burnett and Roma Downey, the producers of the new film about the life of Jesus: “Son of God.” Mark Burnett is best known as the producer of reality shows such as “Survivor” and “The Voice.” His wife Roma Downey was one of the stars in the long running television program “Touched by an Angel.” We had our conversation at Saddleback Church, where they were showing the film to nearly a thousand pastors, spouses, and church staff members at an event hosted by the church’s pastor Rick Warren. Later in the program, Warren's asks Rick Warren about why he is getting involved in promoting the movie.
