Centre for Public Christianity‘s (CPX) Life & Faith is one of my favourite podcasts. I’ve listened to every episode on their website, some multiple times. They’ve done over 250 episodes! I recently transcribed some of their episodes:
- CPX Interview the Director of Hellbound
- John Dickson & Simon Smart discuss hell
- Non-violence—Twice As Effective As Violence?
- Christianity—Motivating Violence & Non-violence?
- A surprising conversion, an unusual childhood, & an apologist’s apology—Orr-Ewing interview
- Can a loving God judge evil & hold people to account?—Orr-Ewing interview
- The Ring of Truth, the Keeper of the Holy Quran, & a Visceral Struggle—Orr-Ewing interview
I’ve also engaged with CPX:
- Engaging Shumack: justice and the death penalty
- Engaging with CPX’s discussion of hell—part 1
- Engaging Dickson & Smart: Loving Judgment, Shalom, & Eternal Proportionality?
- Doubt & Desire: Peter Rollins vs John Dickson
Anyway, just for fun, I wrote a Python program that scanned their website to find details on every episode—from that, I was able to determine the top 10 most downloaded episodes (as of 4/3/2017).

I also plotted the “Downloads vs Age” of all the episodes, which shows the growth in the podcast’s popularity:
