He is the host of the Eric Metaxas Radio Show — the “Show about Everything” — which is a two-hour daily nationally-syndicated radio program heard in more than 120 cities around the U.S. and via podcast in over 80 countries that features in-depth interviews with a wide variety of guests such as columnists David Brooks, Kirsten Powers, George Will, Peggy Noonan, and Jason Gay; actors such as Tony Shaloub, Patricia Heaton, Andrew Garfield, Richard Dreyfuss, Tony Hale, Candace Cameron Bure, and Joseph Fiennes; sports figures such as Tony Dungy and Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles; TV personalities such as Katie Couric, Kathie Lee Gifford, and David Gregory; writers such as Mary Karr, Nathaniel Philbrick, and Odyssey translator Emily Wilson; film directors such as Adam McKay; and comedians such as Robert Klein, Jeff Altman, Nia Vardalos, Jimmy “J.J.” Walker, Alexandra Wentworth, Robert Smigel, and impressionist Rich Little; theologians such as N.T. Wright and Tim Keller; and singers and songwriters such as Paul Williams, LeCrae, and Harry Connick, Jr.
Metaxas speaks to thousands around the U.S. and internationally each year. He was the keynote speaker at the 2012 National Prayer Breakfast in Washington DC, an event attended by the President and First Lady, the Vice President, members of Congress, and other U.S. and world leaders. ABC News has called him a “photogenic, witty ambassador for faith in public life,” and The Indianapolis Star described him as “a Protestant version of William F. Buckley.”
Eric’s commentaries, humor writing, book and movie reviews, and poetry have appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times, The Washington Post, and National Review. His Wall Street Journal op-ed, "Science Increasingly Makes the Case for God" is the most popular and shared piece in the history of the Journal.
He has written more than thirty children’s books, including the bestsellers Squanto and the Miracle of Thanksgiving and It’s Time to Sleep, My Love, illustrated by Nancy Tillman, which has sold nearly 1 million copies. Most recently he collaborated with artist Tim Raglin on two humor books titled Donald Drains the Swamp and Donald Builds the Wall.
Metaxas is the founder and host of Socrates in the City: Conversations on the Examined Life, an interview series of “entertaining and thought-provoking discussions on ‘life, God, and other small topics’” featuring such guests as Malcolm Gladwell, Cal Thomas and Bob Beckel, Francis Collins, Sir John Polkinghorne, Peter Hitchens, Baroness Caroline Cox, and Dick Cavett.
Metaxas has been featured as a cultural commentator on CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News programs, and he has been interviewed about his work on the Today Show, Fox and Friends, The History Channel, and C-SPAN’s Q&A with Brian Lamb and In Depth with Peter Slen. He has been featured on many radio programs, including NPR’s Morning Edition, as well as Tom Shilue, Hugh Hewitt, and Dennis Prager.
Metaxas is a Senior Fellow and Lecturer at Large for the King’s College in New York City. He lives in Manhattan with his wife and daughter.
