Fantastic podcast!

This is my favorite podcast that I listen to everyday. It is informative, insightful, and from a solid Lutheran perspective on the issues of our day. Pastor Todd Wilken and Jeff Schwarz do a great job in giving us a Christ Centered, Cross Focused approach to what is happening in our culture here in America and throughout the world. You will learn a lot about what Lutherans believe and why they believe it. You will also hear from a broad range of guests who speak on different topics including: books of the Bible, movie reviews, parenting and Marriage, issues of religious freedom, Lutheran theology, religion in the News Media, and the list goes on and on. This is a great podcast!!!

The Good News, analysis, commentary, and study of authentic, historic Christianity.

The Good News of Jesus' death and resurrection; analysis and commentary of current events through the lens of historic Christianity; and study of Biblical texts, writings of the Church fathers, and even contemporary authors.

Good content, too much of it

I enjoy listening to Issues, Etc., but it is difficult to deal with the podcast subscription. I have a list of daily podcasts in a daily (smart) playlist that removes episodes automatically after they are played, leaving the list open for the next day's feed. Unfortunately, Issues Etc. dumps so many podcasts per day into my feed that I never get to hear anything else unless I manually skip over some of their content. I have tried several different settings on the playlist to limit the episodes -- latest episode only, 2 per day, etc., but it still dumps 5-6 episodes daily into my feed. I can limit all my other podcasts in that playlist, but something about the way IE dumps groups of episodes daily thwarts all efforts to limit my listening to 1-2 episodes per day. My only alternative is to unsubscribe from the feed, and manually download an episode at a time as I feel the need. Unfortunately, this means I will miss quite a bit of content from IE.
