Episode 2 of The Humble Skeptic, “Is Faith Irrational?”, is perhaps the best thing I have ever heard on the modern misconception of the word faith among unbelievers and Christians alike. Shane's podcast is very polished and professional — on the level of “This American Life.” You won’t regret listening to it. Highly recommended for believers and skeptics alike!

Shane Rosenthal recently ventured out to create The Humble Skeptic podcast. I finally listened to the pilot episode and I 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. Shane, of course, is no stranger to radio, podcasts, interviews, etc. His contributions to the success of White Horse Inn, both behind the scenes and as a host, were significant.

Faith is what happens when you shut off your mind. No reasoning, no evidence. It’s the opposite of thinking, evaluating, questioning, investigating. Or so we’re told. But that’s not how Paul or the other apostles actually spoke of faith. With his deliberate, pondering, questioning style, Shane Rosenthal challenges this prevalent view of faith as a blind leap on episode 2 of The Humble Skeptic podcast. I’ve worked with Shane for over three decades, so I’m not surprised by the quality — but I am delighted to see how he put it all together.

This very well may be my new favorite podcast! Shane does an excellent job of digging down below the surface to find the truth of the matter. He leaves no stone unturned and he does it in a very interesting way that keeps you curious. I am looking forward to hearing more from The Humble Skeptic!

[Regarding Episode 2, “Is Faith Irrational?”] Everyone needs to listen to this. Everyone. I cannot express enough how much I am thankful for Shane Rosenthal and his podcast and how excited I am for more episodes. These podcasts ask hard questions and aren’t afraid of digging deep.

I love, love, love the investigative nature of this podcast. That’s a big deal for my “true crime wired” brain always in search for truth and justice. Shane takes us on a journey and helps us to think along the way. The Humble Skeptic podcast is informative, valuable, and has a high level of production. I listen to a lot of podcasts. This one is worth your time and attention. I’ve not heard anything quite like it.

This podcast does not have the “arrogant, argumentative, or condescending style which characterizes many podcasts. Shane is obviously intelligent and confident in his beliefs, but his “humble skepticism” is refreshing and disarming. People of ANY belief system would benefit from this investigative style of analyzing what and why we believe anything to be true or valuable. I look forward to more episodes!

I have appreciated Shane’s work for almost 20 years. And his new podcast does not disappoint. As one of his generation, the story of his dad and Billy Joel was so interesting and appealing. And the second episode on faith is just as good, provocatively so. Already recommended to family and friends. Keep up the excellent work Shane!

Shane has put together a great podcast which is quickly becoming my favorite. Asking the right questions helps to break down the sacred cows of any particular position and exposes the misconceptions in flawed lines of reasoning. This is not a strategy for “winning” arguments, but rather helping people to place their confidence where the evidence leads rather than in popular assertions.

Very high quality production makes this podcast easy to listen to. And the questions and ideas expressed will leave you thinking long after the music fades.

This podcast has quickly become one of my all time favorites because Shane is digging deep into important topics in a way that doesn’t get done much anymore. He is helping us to think critically which is imperative if we desire to reach a lost world or the next generation. I cannot express how much I appreciate this. It is a must listen for all believers, and honestly anyone seeking for answers.
