Signal is the podcast from The MediaNet - a monthly look behind the scenes of faith, the media and those who shape it. Hosted by James Poulter with Ruth Jackson and Sam Hailes, plus monthly guests, interviews and reviews of the news, broadcasting and culture. Every month we also give you the recommendations you need for what to read, listen to or watch to go deeper in faith and media. The MediaNet is a network that supports, encourages and inspires Christians who work in, and with, the UK media. Through local get togethers and a flourishing online network, we’re seeking to help Christians better understand how their faith and work interact, and to encourage and inspire each other to be disciples whilst meeting the demands of our industry.
