SUMMARY: In a world of 24-hour news coverage, it is easy to get lost in the shear volume of information. Fortunately, the fine people at The Pour Over Podcast are producing three (M, Tu., Fri.) sub-eight-minute podcasts each week that highlight top news while keeping the focus on Christ.
News items are stated objectively and followed by a verse to put the news into context of the Christian life. We appreciate the subtle humor, the mellow presentation, and that it’s only released three times a week. This facilitates a contemplative take on being informed.

KEY QUOTE: “Stay informed while remaining focused on Christ.”
