Dallas Podcaster’s “The Bible Recap” Hits No. 1 on Apple Podcasts, Transforming Bible Reading

Tara-Leigh Cobble’s podcast, “The Bible Recap,” becomes a chart-topper, offering daily insights for Bible readers. Cobble’s unique approach to Scripture reading and the show’s success showcase a transformative way to engage with the Bible.


Tara-Leigh Cobble, the host behind “The Bible Recap,” a podcast designed as a companion for those embarking on Bible reading plans, has achieved a significant milestone as her show recently clinched the No. 1 spot on Apple Podcasts.

Cobble’s journey with the Bible took a turn after a transformative conversation with her pastor, leading her to change her approach to Scripture. She shares this alternative perspective through her podcast, offering daily episodes of around eight minutes each. Aimed at aiding individuals reading the entire Bible in a year, “The Bible Recap” has resonated widely since its launch on Jan. 1, 2019.

What started as a modest aspiration for 300 listeners quickly skyrocketed to over 300 million downloads, marking the show’s substantial impact on its audience. Cobble’s down-to-earth approach and relatable narratives have contributed to the podcast’s success, making Biblical texts more accessible and engaging.

Beyond the podcast, Cobble extends her reach through books, guided tours of Biblical sites in Israel, and a weekday radio show, “The God Shot.” She focuses on simplifying complex Bible passages, advocating for a deeper understanding of God’s character rather than striving for personal perfection through Scripture.

Her signature sign-off, “the God shot,” encapsulates each episode’s essence, offering profound insights into God’s nature. Cobble’s aspiration remains to help listeners develop a genuine connection with the Bible, encouraging a deeper relationship with God beyond religious expectations.
