(Re-Post) 2015 Recap, Part One

00:0000:00

IN THIS REPEAT: 2015 had many good shows! This first of a two-part show reminds you of the podcasts from that year.

---------------------------------------- 

2015RecapPartONE.jpg2015 was a busier year than even last year for releasing brand new shows, or episodes that had never been posted on the AAJ hosting location. Nearly 40 shows fall under that category, as I released an average of more than one show a week when you count re-releases.

00:0000:00

IN THIS REPEAT: My last new podcast, the third of a six part series dealing with misquotes and misconceptions. 

Podcast_EXPLORING_-_3.jpgThis is the third podcast episode in the series on "Misquotes and Misconceptions." Guest host for this show is Rev. David Beckmann. Previously he was interviewed about a video series he produced entitled C.S. Lewis on Prayer (link below).

You will find the key words of those sayings listed below (that also link to an article online) about the quote in question. Also, in the show itself, actual quotes from Lewis are shared that are the closest thing he said on the given topic.

This is the second of a two-part reflection reviewing some of the podcasts I did over the past year. Previously I did a recap on shows posted through July. This episode picks up in August (when I began to have the audio files host at the new location. As before I mention all the new shows (there were 19) and share a except from most of them. If you check the archive, however, you will notice many older shows were added to the new location and I will continue to do that during 2015. Feel free to leave a comment telling me about your favorite show or make a suggestion of a potential guest.

(Re-Post) 2014 Recap, Part ONE

00:0000:00

2014Recap1.jpgIN THIS REPEAT:  I decided to re-share 2014's recap of the shows I posted that year. This is the first of those two podcasts:



I had thirty-four new shows posted in 2014 (thirty six if you count this and next week's show!). The following is the first of a two part recap/reflection on the programs that were released in the last year. This segment spotlights shows done through July of this year before I changed the location of the hosting of All About Jack. At this time not all shows that was released at the old location has been re-released at the new site. Thus, a few excepts I share in this recap isn't available at this time, but will be in the next few weeks and links will be added later. Feel free to leave a comment telling me about your favorite show or make a suggestion of a potential guest.

IN THIS REPEAT: Learn about the official C.S. Lewis Blog with my guest, Zach Kincaid.

Did yoLewisBlogZach2016.jpgu know there is an official website for C.S. Lewis? If you've only casually stop by it then you may have thought its sole purpose was to sell books from him. While that IS the main purpose, if you look carefully you'll see there's a special blog available through the site that features a lot of interesting articles. So, to help you learn about this part of the site Zach Kincaid is my guest to discuss it, as well as some about the official Lewis group on Facebook.

00:0000:00

IN THIS REPEAT: Last year's panel discussion from the 2016 Taylor Colloquium.




Taylor_2016_PANEL.jpg
What follows is the panel discussion from the 2016 Taylor Colloquium that was held at Taylor University in Indiana just a few weeks ago.  Joe Ricke moderated the session with the featured keynote speakers, Diana Glyer, Colin Duriez, and Sorina Higgins. Those attending will recall that Carol Zaleski joined in via the Internet, however the quality of the audio on my recording was too poor to include; so none of her comments are included in this podcast. Other than that, all of the panel discussion content is provided in the show.

00:0000:00

IN THIS REPEAT: From last year...parts of the keynotes from Taylor 2016 Colloquium.




Taylor_2016_Highlights.jpgHere's another podcast featuring content from the recent 2016 Taylor Colloquium. This time it's highlights from each of the three keynote addresses. That is, about fifteen minutes  of the talks are provided in this show. You'll hear Diana Glyer first as she talks about the process of writing and how Lewis and Tolkien often differed. Next is Sornia Higgins' presentation on the life of Charles Williams and finally, the last third of this podcast comes from Colin Duriez's speech on the critical friendship of Lewis and Owen Barfield. Please note that the last talk by Colin is more difficult to understand, as the place it was recorded in was different than the others and it turned out worse than expected.

(Re-Post) Exploring C.S. Lewis Misquotes and Misconceptions - Episode 1

00:0000:00

IN THIS REPEAT: The last new show; the debut episode of the series Explorling Lewis Misquotes and Misconceptions.

Podcast_EXPLORING_-_1a.jpg

If you have been on social media over the last few years then you have probably seen a quotation attributed to Lewis from someone that you wondered if he actually wrote. That happen to me time and time again; so much that I began to collect them as I researched whether or not Lewis wrote the quote in question. That led to a blog series examining each quotation (see link below). More recently I began collecting information related to the life of Lewis and his writings that are misunderstood and started a blog series on this (link also below). This led me to considering what you now see, the first of a six-part episode chatting about these topics. This initial show provides an overview of all the subjects address in the other programs. Guest host for today is Dr. Crystal Hurd.
