Listener Feedback


MARY REICHARD, HOST: Today is Friday, November 27th. Good morning! This is The World and Everything in It from listener-supported WORLD Radio. I’m Mary Reichard.

NICK EICHER, HOST: And I’m Nick Eicher. Coming next: your listener feedback!

REICHARD: And we’ll start, as we always do, with a few corrections. This month, we had several errors involving something that has no errors: God’s Word! In the close of the November 10th program, I referenced Ecclesiastes, when I meant Psalms. 

Then commentator Ryan Bomberger said he was quoting John 13:33, when he really meant John 16:33.

And finally, Megan Basham identified Paul as the writer of Hebrews. While many scholars do think Paul wrote that letter, we don’t actually know for sure. And it’s a topic of hot debate among theologians! We did not mean to wade into that!

EICHER: We also had a sports-related error this month. In our newscast report about the Masters earlier this month, we said golfer Dustin Johnson tied the tournament’s previous winning record. In fact, he beat it by two strokes.

And finally, we repeated an error that has plagued us this election season. We’ll let listener Tera Powell from Indian Springs, Alabama, explain.

TERA POWELL: Now that we’ve elected a new senator from our great state we need to make sure we both are pronouncing his name properly. His name is Tuberville. So he’s now Senator Tuberville from Alabama. Thanks so much. Love listening. Keep up the great work.

Yes, Senator Tommy Tuberville. Thank you, Terra, and everyone else who called or wrote about our mispronunciation there!

REICHARD: We also got a lot of feedback from listeners who loved the way we ended our election week programs. Here’s Leta Powell from Cedar Crest, New Mexico.

LETA POWELL: I loved the week of prayers at the end of each program during election week. I think you should do that again and maybe every year during the week of the 4th of July. It was very encouraging.

EICHER: They were just as encouraging to us as they were to you! And thanks to all of you who sent us recordings for those special segments. We couldn’t have done them without you.

REICHARD: Team effort! Well, we have time for one more call this week. Here’s listener Scott Bar from Livonia, Michigan.

SCOTT BARR: I want to compliment you on the Monday Moneybeat. This has gone from a segment that have all the things you do… everything you do is great. But before I probably would have ranked it near the bottom as far as my favorite segments. It’s not that I didn’t get value out of it. It just wasn’t one of my favorites. But ever since you’ve been using David Bahnsen every week, it’s right up there with Legal Docket and Culture Friday for me as the segments that I make sure I hear no matter what. It’s, his insights are great. I’ve learned a lot listening to him every week. Just kudos to you. I hope he stays with the program for a long time. Thanks.

EICHER: David is great, very knowledgeable, and I’ve learned a lot just hanging out with him. Glad he’s been a help to you. 

REICHARD: Oh, one other thing! In case you didn’t hear our big announcement this week, there’s a Black Friday sale going on right now for WORLD Watch. You can get a whole year of current events videos for $40 bucks. That’s half off, now through Monday.
