The 15th Station Podcast


The 15th Station (or Station 15) is New Zealand’s first Catholic podcast.  It has now grown into a podcast network!

The podcast itself is a monthly news discussion podcast that was launched on the Feast of the Assumption (August 15) 2007, as that is the feast day of New Zealand. We named the podcast after the Stations of the Cross. The last station (the 14th) ends with Christ’s body being laid in the tomb. Of course, we all know that the next station would be Christ’s rising from the dead – which our Church is the product of. So, we named this media project after that glorious moment when Christ conquered death and sin and gave us all new life.
