The Passing Place Podcast episode Three: Kindles, Amazon, Arkady Renko, God and the Gospel

The Passing Place Podcast episode Three: Kindles, Amazon, Arkady Renko, God and the Gospel

In their latest podcast from the Shetland Islands, neighbours Tom Morton and Drew Ratter talk reading by Kindlelight, the effect of Amazon on independent bookshops, their shared delight in the writing of Martin Cruz Smith (Gorky Park) and they tiptoe carefully around the question of religion. Or rather, they jump in with wellington boots flying.

Is it time for a Moody and Sankey revival, only on licensed premises? Did Tom really mislay his faith, rather than lose it? How did Drew get from Marxism to the Church of Scotland.

And then there's a little slice of gospel music to finish, from Aretha Franklin's superstar preacher father. Who actually, if you read up his biography, had an awful lot to be forgiven for, even if he did have a horrific ending to his life.
