The Humble Skeptic is an investigative podcast designed to explore the beliefs and ideas that shape our lives. The reason we need to be skeptical is due to the fact that there are so many competing dogmas out there to choose from. To put it simply, all our different beliefs and worldviews can’t be true! In fact, this is why the Apostle Paul encourages us to, “test all things—but hold on to the good” (1Th. 5:21).

What They’re Saying…

I just finished listening to The Humble Skeptic podcast. It’s excellent! I loved the interviews, the personal storytelling and the investigational aspect. It’s a great way to explain the “humble skeptic” concept. I also loved the artistic aspect, the use of music, etc. The broadened appeal should help to generate a wide audience.
— Brandon Kimber, director of The American Gospel documentary series

This podcast is really well done! In fact, I decided to play the first minute of the pilot episode to open up a lecture at Wheaton College on Contending for Truth in an Age of Radical Subjectivism.
— John Dickson, host of Undeceptions and author of A Doubter’s Guide to Jesus

Shane Rosenthal’s Humble Skeptic podcast is superb! I was drawn in by the subject matter and narration of the first episode and am looking forward to hearing what’s next. Humble Skepticism — what a concept!
Michael Horton, host of White Horse Inn

What an amazing podcast this is!! It's broad in the best possible way — accessible but not insubstantial or toothless. I really like it!
— David Zahl, author of Seculosity

There are a lot of podcasts from which to choose but you only have so much time, so you need to be selective. Shane Rosenthal's The Humble Skeptic is one of the best I've ever heard. It is a breath of fresh air. Riveting. I'm subscribed and I will be supporting it. You should too.
— R. Scott Clark, Westminster Seminary California professor

I loved all the twists in the investigation of the Billy Joel storyline, and I was especially impressed with how this was used to make an important point. Excellent storytelling done with a high production value — I’ll be a faithful listener!
— Doug Powell, author of The Ultimate Guide to Defend Your Faith

Shane Rosenthal's new Humble Skeptic podcast is highly informative, but also fun to listen to. This is a great resource for believers and skeptics alike!
— Adriel Sanchez, host of Core Christianity

Shane Rosenthal’s fascinating new podcast, The Humble Skeptic, aims to show that a Christianity founded solidly on evidence can boldly answer the "outsider test" for truth in religious matters. With an emphasis on eyewitness testimony, careful thinking, and common sense, it promises to be an excellent addition to the apologetics podcast menu.
— Lydia McGrew, author of Testimonies to the Truth

Former White Horse Inn host, Shane Rosenthal, recently ventured out on his own to create The Humble Skeptic podcast. I finally listened to the pilot episode and absolutely loved it! What, pray tell, could Shane's own father and his 50+ year old memory of Billy Joel playing in a little piano bar in LA possibly have to say about Christian apologetics? Listen to the wildly entertaining story and see for yourself!
— Jeremy Smith, founder of ReThink315

The Humble Skeptic podcast is delightful! The pilot episode centered on the Piano Man story serves as a nice illustration (and a kind of parable) of the nature of belief.
— T. David Gordon, author of Why Johnny Can’t Preach

In a world of media dominated by angry voices, Shane Rosenthal’s podcast, The Humble Skeptic, is a creative alternative where honest questions lead to engaging conversations.
— Joseph R. Miller, president of the Center for Cultural Apologetics
