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, hosted by Warren Cole Smith, is a conversational program featuring newsmakers and thought leaders that explores the depths of some of the most interesting topics of our day.
“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 airs 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 and songwriter Andrew Peterson
Andrew Peterson was a struggling songwriter with a passion for Rich Mullins’ music when the Christian band Caedmon’s Call asked him to open their shows in the late 1990s. That providential turn of events, plus a critically acclaimed first album, called “Carried Along,” put Andrew Peterson on the musical map. But music is not all he does. His four-volume young adult/fantasy series called The Wingfeather Saga has been winning him fans outside the musical world. The fourth and final volume of the Wingfeather books is now out, and Warren Cole Smith sat down with Andrew Peterson near his home in Nashville at a Starbuck’s Coffee Shop, a place he recommended in part because that’s where he wrote much of the Wingfeather Saga series.
