Listener Bonanza!

Ho Ho Ho! Merry Christmas from MF and Rob to all of you out there in G&GLand. Today's episode was actually not even supposed to happen (we were planning on taking the next two weeks off for the holidays) until Rob looked in the G&G e-mail box...and sheesh! We realized just how poorly...


Building Online Community: User Profiles

Ok, racefans....are we ready to build the core of all community driven websites? Yup, that's right, today we talk all about building user profiles.

Church Site Architecture

Is your church website like a house with clothes, toys, and podcasts scattered around the floors of every room? Or, are you the Martha Stewart of webmasters, organizing and categorizing your content for easy use? (sounds like there's a biblical parable there somewhere...)

Podcasting Your Sermons and Bible Classes

Today's podcast offers up a big ol' contradiction. The topic is "How to podcast your sermon or bible class", yet we spend tons of time telling you why sermon and bible class podcasts aren't very effective. I know, I know...so why try?

We like to call sermon podcasts "...


Why Your Church Should Podcast

Horray! We're back from our 2 month hiatus and ready to rock some socks off. While we were gone, we did a bunch of stuff, but one of the things we did was teach some sessions at a worship conference. This conference has inspired two new aspects of the G&G Podcast...


Audio Processing: Part 2

On last week's Geeks and God podcast we dove into some audio processing plugins and hardware boxes and described what it was that those did to your audio. On this week, we try and get a little bit more practical by telling you how to acually use those devices, give advice on settings to start...


Audio Processing: Part 1

Quite a while ago, a G&G Blog existed. As usually happens, we got lazy and never updated it, so we nixed it....But, looking at our web stats at the time, we saw just how many people frequented Rob's blog entries about Audio Processing basics. So, we figured we'd take the need we saw and...



Today's podcast is weird. Flat out. There is almost nothing, except Rob Feature, that resembles every other Geeks and God podcast. MF is still gone, so we have Pastor Joe Burnham sitting in as podcast co-host. We decided...
