This is probalby one of the most important radio series ever conceived. The content is not dumbed down - it is up to date, challenging and thought provoking. The whole series needs to be made available as a national treasure.
Actually here is a request (if anybody reads this) why can we not download all the programmes (since most of us only just got an ipod!) - would love to catch up.

Rewarding and In-depth

I was so pleased when the podcasts began as I hated to miss my weekly fix of Melvin Bragg and guests. These discussions delight me with their comprehensive review of a particular topic with leading academics. Mr Bragg keeps the guests on track and allows them to explain complex and mostly unfamiliar concepts or people without ‘dumbing down’. Wonderful and radio to be treasured.

Inspirational and joyful

Give your faith and confidence a boost by listening to this amazing podcast. Ordinary people being used to do incredible things in our broken world. Thank you Praxis for helping me move on from being an ‘I-wish-I-was-an-activist’ to a Hopeful Activist. You have raised my expectations of seeing God act in my community.
