UTR: The Mortification of Spin

Reformed podcasts often feel stodgy because they use orchestral bumper music and hosts who take themselves way too seriously. They tend to emphasize the education value of podcasting and neglect entertainment and inspiration. The last thing you expect from them is fun.


The Mortification of Spin podcast is the antidote to boring reformed podcasts everywhere. From the first rock notes of the introduction to the songs added to the outro—often thematically connected to the content—this show is fun and engaging. 


Hosts Carl Trueman, Todd Pruitt, and Aimee Byrd discuss timely theological topics from a reformed perspective. The cohosts have an easy rapport, clearly enjoying each other’s company. They also laugh a lot! While they don’t always agree, all three subscribe to the same slice of the theological spectrum. 


Recent episodes covered the value of denominations, the progressive Christian movement, and Byrd’s latest book. The mix of conversations between the hosts, occasional question-and-answer episodes, and interview episodes offers a balanced variety of content. The hosts work hard to be encouraging, but conversations can feel a bit critical toward non-reformed Christian traditions.


The show is well-produced, and the audio quality is clear and excellent.
