The Humble Skeptic, hosted by Shane Rosenthal, is an investigative podcast designed to explore the beliefs and ideas that shape our lives. Shane was raised in a Jewish home but became an atheist at a very early age. Some years later, however, he ended up losing faith in atheism and converted to Christianity. On this program, he talks with scholars from all over the world about issues related to faith and worldview to better understand what motivates people to believe the things they do. At the end of the day, we’re all believers, but because there are so many beliefs and worldview options out there, we just can’t all be right. So how do we find the truth? On this podcast, we start by asking questions.

What They’re Saying…

Exciting podcast about faith in a post-faith world.
Michael Bird, author and theology prof. at Ridley College, Melbourne, Australia

There are a lot of podcasts from which to choose but you only have so much time, so you need to be selective. Shane Rosenthal's The Humble Skeptic is one of the best I've ever heard. It is a breath of fresh air. Riveting. I'm subscribed and I will be supporting it. You should too.
R. Scott Clark, author and Westminster Seminary California professor

This podcast is really well done—in fact, I decided to play the first minute of the pilot episode to open up a lecture at Wheaton College on Contending for Truth in an Age of Radical Subjectivism.
John Dickson, author, professor, and host of the Undeceptions podcast

I just finished listening to The Humble Skeptic podcast. It’s excellent! I loved the interviews, the personal storytelling, the investigational aspect, the use of music, etc. The broadened appeal should help to generate a wide audience.
Brandon Kimber, director of The American Gospel documentary series

Shane Rosenthal’s Humble Skeptic podcast is superb! I was drawn in by the subject matter and narration of the first episode and am looking forward to hearing what’s next. Humble Skepticism — what a concept!
Michael Horton, author, host of White Horse Inn and professor at Westminster Seminary California

What an amazing podcast this is!! It's broad in the best possible way — accessible but not insubstantial or toothless. I really like it!
David Zahl, author of Seculosity and Low Anthropology

I loved all the twists in the investigation of the Billy Joel storyline, and I was especially impressed with how this was used to make an important point. Excellent storytelling with a high production value — I’ll be a faithful listener!
Doug Powell, author of The Ultimate Guide to Defend Your Faith

Shane Rosenthal's new Humble Skeptic podcast is highly informative, but also fun to listen to. This is a great resource for believers and skeptics alike!
Adriel Sanchez, author and host of Core Christianity

Shane Rosenthal’s fascinating new podcast, The Humble Skeptic, aims to show that a Christianity founded solidly on evidence can boldly answer the "outsider test" for truth in religious matters. With an emphasis on eyewitness testimony, careful thinking, and common sense, it promises to be an excellent addition to the apologetics podcast menu.
Lydia McGrew, author of Hidden in Plain View and Testimonies to the Truth

Former White Horse Inn host, Shane Rosenthal, recently ventured out on his own to create The Humble Skeptic podcast. I finally listened to the pilot episode and absolutely loved it! What, pray tell, could Shane's own father and his 50+-year-old memory of Billy Joel playing in a little piano bar in LA possibly have to say about Christian apologetics? Listen to the wildly entertaining story and see for yourself!
Jeremy Smith, founder of ReThink315

The Humble Skeptic podcast is delightful! The pilot episode centered on the Piano Man story serves as a nice illustration (and a kind of parable) of the nature of belief.
T. David Gordon, author of Why Johnny Can’t Preach and Promise, Law, Faith

In a world of media dominated by angry voices, Shane Rosenthal’s podcast, The Humble Skeptic, is a creative alternative where honest questions lead to engaging conversations.
Joseph R. Miller, president of the Center for Cultural Apologetics
