    It’s been a while since we produced a regular podcast. The current “Faithfully Podcast” features cuts of our Q&As with exclusive guests (like “White Lies” author Daniel Hill, Gospel Today founder Teresa Hairston, and “Jesus and John Wayne” author Kristin Kobes Du Mez).

    However, we’re creating a new, once-a-week podcast show hosted by religion reporter and Managing Editor Nicola A. Menzie that will focus on news round-ups, tough topics, and special guests. We’re thinking of calling this podcast “The News With Nicola.”

    Nicola will talk news, events, culture and entertainment, and occasionally interview experts to go a little deeper on tough topics. The goal is to keep the show real, relevant, and faithful.

    This podcast will not be a culture war podcast or a sleepy news round-up or be filled with fear-mongering. We want to enrich listeners’ lives by keeping you informed and inspired.

    We need your help deciding how we should move forward — or if we should move forward at all — with this new podcast show.

    Can you help us out by responding to the handful of questions below? Your responses will help us know how to serve you best!

    Bonus: After you take the survey, leave a comment to tell us which guests you’d like for us to have on the show. We’ll randomly select a Commenter to receive a virtual/electronic $15 Amazon gift card (you’ll need to use a real email address).
