Mars Hill Audio Journal

For those of you who haven't looked into it yet, I recommend that you check out Mars Hill Audio Journal. It is an audio journal delivered in a variety of formats, including cd, cassette, and mp3 download.

The journal "is committed to assisting Christians who desire to move from thoughtless consumption of contemporary culture to a vantage point of thoughtful engagement".
