WORLD News Group, publisher of WORLD magazine and producer of WORLD Radio’s The World and Everything in It, has a new audio program called Listening In.
Listening In is a conversational program featuring newsmakers and thought leaders that explores the depths of some of the most interesting topics of our day hosted by Warren Cole Smith. “Our goal is to explore topics as thoughtfully as possible,” said 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.”
Listening In will air each Friday in January, February, and March and can be streamed or downloaded (by right clicking) at wng.org/listeningin. Beginning in the spring, plans are in place to move to a daily format. The program will be available to radio stations via FTP download.

A conversation with tax reformer Grover Norquist
Today, listen in to a conversation with Warren Cole Smith and Grover Norquist who was one of the leaders of a wave of young conservatives who came to Washington in the 1980s, inspired by President Ronald Reagan. During those years he was a friend and political ally with evangelical leader Ralph Reed and subsequently disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff. Norquist rose to national attention as one of the architects of Newt Gingrich’s Contract with America. He was also the mastermind behind getting Republican office holders and candidates to take a pledge not to raise taxes. This conversation began about the pledge.
