The Seminary Explores Podcast

The Seminary Explores LogoFrom the religion beat to the arts, from theology to politics, from ethics to interfaith issues, the Seminary Explores podcasts give you a mind opening glimpse of the world,  20 minutes at a time. When and where you want it. 

Established in 1970 as a radio program for central PA audiences, the Seminary Explores exercised its mission as an outreach in public theology and mission leadership by moving to the web in late 2013. 

No longer broadcast early Sunday mornings, The Seminary Explores provides an opportunity for the Seminary's wider constituencies and the global community to hear a variety of issues that are of significant theological interest, but do not entail self-advertising or proselytizing.
