WBGL/Champaign reports “The Unfolding” podcast which it launched on May 3, 2019, hit 100,000 downloads on Wednesday, October 9, 2019! The Unfolding is just 25 episodes in and has featured a variety of guests, including artists, Steven Curtis Chapman, Darren Mulligan of We Are Messengers and Jason Gray. Every week, host WBGL’s Meridith Foster sits down with a guest to share their chapter in God’s unfolding story.

Meridith reflects on the experience, sharing, “It’s exciting to hit 100,000 downloads, but what’s even more exciting has been the powerful responses to these God stories and the ability to share hope, even when you’re facing challenges.  Everyone needs hope today, and it’s been incredible to be a part of that.”

The audience for The Unfolding continues to grow each week, as the podcast approaches 120,000 downloads today.

Producer, Jason Rackow offers these thoughts, “I feel fortunate to be working on “The Unfolding” with Meridith Foster. We’re hoping that more people can hear a part of themselves in the stories of others, and be reminded of a God who brings hope, and is with them in each season of life. Meridith gently and respectfully seeks to understand each person interviewed and authentically discovers the unique path of every story, along with you, through thoughtful questions.”

The Unfolding can be heard on Apple Podcasts and Google Podcasts.
