The World And Everything In It

The World and Everything in It

It’s like NPR from a Christian worldview is a common listener description of our daily news podcast The World and Everything in It. Psalm 89:11 inspires our program title: “The heavens are Yours; the earth also is Yours; the world and all that is in it, You have founded them.” It says something about the breadth of news coverage on the program, but also its depth — with biblically objective journalism at its core. Each day’s half hour starts with a fast-paced news summary, followed by longer stories, interviews, and reports from WORLD journalists, as well as thoughtful commentary and original feature journalism reported from the field. Hosted by Mary Reichard and Nick Eicher, The World and Everything in It will enhance your morning commute or any part of your daily routine.
