Never suspected I’d be putting up a link to this but here we are (only because I have some respect for interviewer Rachel Kohn’s judgment on what’s intellectual and fair despite/beneath marketing requirements) . . . .

Check out ABC Radio National’s The Ark, a 15 minute podcast — but it’s only in podcast and online for 4 weeks. More parts to follow — check the website to see the more critical interviewees in store. . . .

Blurb from “The Ark” website:

Would the discovery of Jesus’ family tomb change Christianity? The producer of the hit TV series ‘The Naked Archaeologist’, Simcha Jacobovici, thinks he’s found the burial cave of Jesus, Joseph, Mary, and Mary Magdalene. But why have archaeologists kept silent about what they’ve known for decades?


Simcha Jacobovici
is a Director, Producer and Writer. An Israeli-born Canadian, he has a B.A. in Philosophy from McGill University and a M.A. in International Relations from the University of Toronto. In 2005, he won the American Overseas Press Club Award for Impact of Terror (CNN) and in 2006 he won the British Broadcast Award for Best Documentary for Sex Slaves (CBC, C4 and PBS Frontline). Most recently, he won a Gold World Medal at the 2007 NYFF for The Exodus Decoded (History Channel) which he co-produced with James Cameron.
