New Podcast: By the Waters of Babylon with Scott Aniol

I am pleased to announce the launch of a new podcast: “By the Waters of Babylon with Scott Aniol.”

For years I have posted a weekly blog here at Religious Affections Ministries, and recently a bi-weekly opinion piece at The Christian Post. This new format will provide content for those who enjoy listening to podcasts. I personally listen every day, to and from work, to podcasts including news, sermons, theology, commentary and more. I am happy to offer this podcast to engage in important matters through an audio format.

My goal for this podcast is to be informative, devotional, and challenging. I will address biblical principles, historical issues, and recommended resources centered on the theme of Christians seeking to please the Lord in a culture that is increasingly post-Christian.

The podcast is only 20 minutes long and includes 3–4 short segments as well as recommended resources. I’m sure the format will evolve over time, and I welcome comments and suggestions for things you’d like to hear.

Please help spread the word about this new podcast by sharing it on social media, and give the first episode a listen!
