I appreciate Dr. Sri!

As a Catholic who was confirmed just two years ago, I listen to Dr. Sri every week. I appreciate his insights and the topics that he discusses. He is a must-listen for all Catholics!

A lot of quality in manageable quantities

What I love about this show is that each episode is deeply insightful, and yet of a manageable length. The wisdom Dr. Sri offers is both timeless and incredibly relevant. His scholarship is enriched by stories of his life as a father/husband, and his love for Christ is inspiring. A must listen for any Catholic at any level of knowledge about their faith.
