The Maxwell Institute Podcast just released two episodes recognizing the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther's 95 Theses, widely held to be the catalyst of the Reformation. Taken together, these conversational interviews offer background about Martin Luther's context and concerns, explore the immediate aftermath of his theses, and address some of the ways the Reformation still impacts the world today. Two award-winning historians—Craig Harline (Brigham Young University) and Brad Gregory (University of Notre Dame)—spend an hour each talking about the Reformation and its aftershocks. This show is crafted to be accessible to educated beginners, but still relevant and informative to specialists. 

MIPodcast #66—Martin Luther and the birth of the Reformation, with Craig Harline
MIPodcast #67—How the Reformation rebelled against Luther, with Brad S. Gregory

Each episode also includes a full transcript, making these interviews more accessible for classroom discussion.
