Background Information for Episode 1

Our first podcast is coming soon. Read the brief biography of Rick Warren I posted earlier and then have a look at some of this material to get ready for the discussion.

Here is Rick Warren's own "News and Views" podcast he produces every couple weeks. This one is from mid-December and it highlights a number of the issues we are likely to touch on. I especially like, at about the 2 minute mark, where he says that bloggers who criticize him need to get a life. Yep. We do.

Here is a portion of the Civic Forum Warren hosted, where he interviewed Obama and McCain. This is just a portion with Obama, but if you follow it back to Youtube you can find the rest of the clips.

Below is a chunk of an interview Warren did with Sean Hannity on Fox News to promote his new book. The conversation took a brief diversion into foreign policy, as you will see...

And here is a CNN debate on Obama's choice to have Warren deliver the invocation at his inauguration.

There is a plethora of material out there if you want more perspectives to reflect on, but this should give you a start.
