    1. RobertPankey iTunes or FeedBurner?  I just now checked, and 102 and 103 seem to be up and functional on FeedBurner.  iTunes doesn’t function properly on campus for me (not sure why), so I’m not as confident on that end.

        1. RobertPankey ngilmour I’ll be.  Give me a few hours–I’ll check this from my home computer when I get home.  (We’re about to start recording right now.)

        2. RobertPankey ngilmour In the meantime, use the “Podcast RSS” link in the right margin.  It’s our direct link to our FeedBurner page, and it’s got the episode.

  1. ChenBuLei Nice catch!  As one of Dr. Mouw’s recent Books and Culture essays indicates, he does at least occasionally read this site, so it’s nice to see that he shares my concerns about “the prophetic” as a partisan political bludgeon.
