Small steps to sainthood ,

Great resource for ethics

A refreshing and great resource in a world full of fast flowing information. More than ever we are bombarded with misinformation and plain ignorance, having a truthful and powerful value based outlook on bioethics is key.

Excellent Podcast

The questions asked are very pertinent to the emerging research and the guests on the show are very knowledgeable. I loved Fr. Austriaco’s talk on CRISPR. Keep up the good work. Upload more podcasts!
