I love ABC Radio National's The Religion Report, presented by Stephen Crittenden. I'd love to find a similarly well-informed show in the States.
This week's episode focuses on Scientology, but he usually focuses on the religious issues that are prominent in Australia: Anglicans, the Uniting Church, the Exclusive Brethren, Hillsong Church, and of course the ongoing issues surrounding Australia's relationship to its Muslim minority.
I picked up on The Religion Report after visiting Australia in 2005; it's one of two (the other being The Night Air) ABC Radio National podcasts I listen to on a regular basis.
