I asked my team at The Unstuck Group to share podcasts they think pastors should be listening to and why. If you’re new to podcasts, or just looking for some fresh voices to follow, here were some of our top picks.

This American Life
Start Answering the Questions People Are Actually Asking
“I get a better sense of the questions people in our culture are asking and wrestling with when I listen to this podcast. This American Life shares compelling (and sometimes funny… and sometimes heartbreaking) stories that shine light on deeper trends I think all pastors should be paying attention to.” — Tiffany Deluccia
Carey Nieuwhof Leadership Podcast
Straightforward Conversations with Ministry Leaders on Tough Topics
Chances are, you’re already listening to this one. I had to put it on the list because Carey consistently dives into the toughest of topics facing church leaders today. He’s asking questions and opening up conversations few others will.
I was actually honored to be a guest on his podcast this month. We talked about why churches get stuck and how to get your church moving again.
