I thought I was missing episode 136 from my collection. But when you start playing #137 he actually says “Welcome to podcast #136.” So if this is in fact 136 then it’s label wrong… and I am in reality missing 137. So enjoy this podcast and look for #138 next week.
Pirate Christian Radio may have played out just recently. I couldn’t find any content on their site newer than February 2021. Lutheran Pastor Chris Rosenbrough was the man behind PCR and he is still very active on Facebook.

When I posted episode #130 I mentioned that the national attention The Coming Evangelical Collapse received was a catalyst in Michael’s decision to publish a book. In this podcast episode he will talk about choosing a publishing agent. He also responds to the Top 10 Questions about that three part series of evangelical collapse posts once they were suddenly noticed by more people.
Let me begin by apologizing for not posting last week. I never realized; my wife mentioned it on Saturday.
Episode #130 is quintessential Michael Spencer. In this episode he talks about the sudden rise in popularity of the Coming Evangelical Collapse posts. The national level of attention of that series of posts received is in large part responsible for the book deal that later followed. The second half of the episode shifts to evangelicalism in the modern American culture. He uses a borrowed term to note the effect Rush Limbaugh had over the course of two decades to define and direct Christian conservatives.
Michael talks about spring break and how beautiful the weather is which coincides nicely with what we’re seeing right now (minus the thunderstorms and tornado warnings).
