3/15/2019
More
We are joined once again by F. Remy Diederich, lead pastor of Cedarbrook Church in Menomonie, Wisconsin, for a very practical yet thought-provoking conversation on the subject of self-control in the Christian life. Reflecting on the work of Dr. Kelly McGonigal, in her popular book The Willpower Instinct, and drawing upon his own experience in pastoral ministry, Remy shares with us reasons why so many of us experience difficulty in the areas of self-control and temptation, and offers us very...

TMR 216 : More Reason for Joy than Sadness

2/2/2019
More
A short, off-the-cuff podcast in which I explain just a little of what's been going on recently in the depths of the Lancashire countryside here in the UK, and why I'm currently finding it difficult to keep TMR refreshed with new podcasts on a regular basis. In short, my father is passing away, and time for creativity is in very short supply. But I'm determined: I shall do all I can to "keep the show on the road". So, do hang in there; TMR is here to stay! For show notes please visit...

Would you eat a "maggot bag" with a Nazi spoon? Is my antique chandelier secretly in love with Blum Jeffgold? Will Frank Johnson kickstart enough cash to research dinosaurs inside the doughnut Earth? And is it safe to fly a Rhodes-scholar-designed-wheelless-African-fixed-up-Russian helicopter with automagic pilot? These, and other important questions, are answered as we kick off 2019 here at TMR in a friendly, entertaining (and sometimes borderline crazy) roundtable chat with high-ranking...

TMR 213 : Dr. Tim Ball : More New Adages for the Technocratic Era

12/7/2018
More
By popular demand, we welcome back Dr. Tim Ball—a "retired" lecturer in geography and historical climatology at the University of Winnipeg, and now perhaps the most entertaining and informative after-dinner speaker on the planet—for a second conversation on his "new adages for the technocratic era". During the last conversation, Dr. Ball said that maybe we would need a second programme to cover his adages adequately. Many listeners picked up on that, and asked me to invite him back for a...

We welcome to the programme the writer and lecturer Edward Curtin, who teaches sociology at Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts, for a conversation on his research into the subject of September 11, 2001, and in particular his analysis of the language used of that event in terms of a hypothesised deep-state policy of linguistic mind control.911UnmaskedCover sm We also discuss the very important book 9/11 Unmasked by David Ray Griffin and Elizabeth Woodworth, recently published by Olive...

Mark, a long-time friend of the show—and indeed long-time friend since our school days—makes the long journey from the UK to Mexico, alone and with little planned in advance, to witness the intriguing festivities of an unfamiliar...

TMR 210 : HyperNormalisation (Antony Rotunno & Julian Charles) Part Two

11/3/2018
More
Antony Rotunno joins us again for the second part of our wide-ranging conversation on the 2016 BBC documentary HyperNormalisation by Adam Curtis. Borrowing the word "hypernormalisation" from a book by ex-Soviet citizen Alexei Yurchak, in whose writing it described an officially-encouraged delusional state of mind in the gradually-collapsing Soviet Union, Adam Curtis creatively applies the term to the West since the last quarter of the 20th Century; a time in which, he argues, both...

We welcome back to the programme Prof. Edgar Andrews, Emeritus Professor of Materials Science in the University of London, to discuss his recently-published book, What Is Man? (2018). In this fascinating follow-up to his earlier book, Who Made God?—which he came on TMR in 2013 to discuss—Professor Andrews turns his attention to the questions of Man's (humanity's) origins and significance in the cosmos.

During the summer break, TMR shares another exclusive presentation by the highly-esteemed Christian philosopher Dr. William Lane Craig—this time a Q&A session on his work in Christian philosophy and apologetics.

Back in 2011, my wife and I had the opportunity to go with Reasonable Faith (the organisation headed up by Dr. Craig) on a guided tour of Israel.

"I promise to tell you my story. The whole story."—Greg Coles We are joined by Gregory Coles, author of the elegant, yet challenging and thought-provoking, book Single, Gay, Christian, published by InterVarsity Press. To give an idea of the book, and thus the conversation, I can do no better than quote DA Carson (one biblical scholarship heroes) who wrote this for the blurb: "To say this book is important is a painful understatement. It is the candid, moving, intensely personal story of a...

6/10/2018

For TMR 200 we welcome back Mike Hopkins, co-host of Fight the Lies Radio, for a thought-provoking conversation on the subject of conspiracy theories and the Christian believer. Is it wrong, as some suggest, for Christians to believe in conspiracy theories? While this might seem like a strange question to ask on TMR, many today in the wider Christian community—including people in positions of leadership—strongly maintain that a Christian shouldn't entertain such thoughts. But what does this...
