Cross & Gavel Podcast

The Cross & Gavel Podcast is designed for Christian attorneys and law students, but our topics range from pop culture to theology, from books to movies.

Host Anton Sorkin invites a variety of guests to speak on topics relating broadly to faith and culture, but our focus is on the intersection of faith and work, particularly work in the law.
