    3. Peter

    3. Peter

    Our first Pope, St. Peter, is the rock on which the Catholic Church was built – but was this a wise decision? In this episode, we discuss Peter’s life and death, his habit of being a two-faced douche who wrecks parties, and whether or not we think he can defend his circular friends at the end!

    4. Linus

    4. Linus

    Our second and lesser known Pope, Linus, had a big act to follow. But he was a talented preacher that drew many converts to the church, and irritated whole cities. In this episode we look at his life, his lips, and ask the question: Is he worthy of a papal bull?

    5. Anacletus

    5. Anacletus

    Pope Anacletus... or Pope Cletus... or both? Our third pope has contributed quite a lot to the confusion of the early papal orders. In this episode, we'll examine his lasting contributions of the papacy, and decide once and for all if he is one or two people.
    Side Note: Fry's audio is a bit warbly in this episode; chalk it up to growing pains of the new podcast!

    6. Clement

    6. Clement

    Pope Clement I arguably has one of the most interesting lives of the early popes, and not just because of the fan fiction written about him! In this episode, we tackle his fantastical life story, his dramatic legacy, and how he is still relevant in 2018.

Quirky

Ladies your delivery is quirky and loose but I truly enjoy it.

an excelent rectrospective of christian history

I am OBSESSED with this podcast. Pontifacts has very very quickly become something that I look forward to every other week. Bry and Fry are able to straddle the line of being informative (not to mention their historagraphical input) while remaining fun and whimsical! Truly if you have any interest in history, ancient rome, the daily life of ancient society, religion or really anything, i recommend you give this podcast a listen anmd you will find something to enjoy
