A Collection of Videos and Interviews on Topics in Early Christianity

I’m starting to compile a list of audios and videos that may be worth listening to/watching. I say “may” because I have not yet found time to watch most of them! In other words, I am simply trying to add things that look like they might be worth checking out as I see them posted by the scholarly community. Needless to say, not all of the views contained therein represent my own.
