The City Podcast: Grade Shock!

by Timothy Motte on May 26, 2014

The way things currently are, the skills that get kids through high school are not the skills needed to get through college.

Megan Mueller encounters students all the time who were successful in high school who are not able to cope with college grades as low as a B. Dr. Ordway deals with this phenomenon at the graduate level. And Cate MacDonald is working at the high school level to change the way things are.

This podcast will open your eyes to a mental shift that needs to happen in education, and perhaps in other areas of life as well.

Featuring: Megan Mueller, Dr. Holly Ordway, Cate MacDonald

The City Podcast: Evidence for Creation

by Timothy Motte on May 5, 2014

In our last episode we learned of the incredible trajectory of Dr. Frank Sherwin’s academic career from poor student to discovering a new species of parasite.

In this episode, Dr. Sherwin shares with Dr. Reynolds some of the scientific evidence that led him to the theory of young earth creationism. He also wows Dr. Reynolds with his trained radio voice.

The City Podcast: Science and the Bible

by Timothy Motte on April 28, 2014

Dr. Frank Sherwin has an amazing rags-to-riches academic career, going from being a D-student to serving in the Vietnam war, to earning a Ph.D. in parasitology and discovering a new species.

As he was doing his graduate work, he noticed that there was no evidence for the evolution that he was being taught as fact. Now he works for the Institute for Creation Research.

We also love his radio voice, and in this episode he and Dr. Reynolds manage to offend the French, telemarketers, and Microsoft.

ADVICE TO MY SON 30: BE A MAN OF YOUR WORD

by Lou Markos on April 24, 2014

Be a man of your word. Now there’s a phrase you don’t hear very often these days. There was a time when most good fathers would lay that injunction on their sons with an almost sacred tone of high seriousness. Today, that injunction, if it is given at all, is more often reduced to “follow the rules” or “protect your reputation” or “watch your back” or, worst of all, “don’t get caught.”
