    Kat’s got the shingles! We have a festive 4th in Swainsboro, and apparently Mac is a rule nazi. ID4 Resurgence is unwatchable, The Core is a bunch of schlocky fun, and teens reacting to The Sixth Sense is totally great. Also, we remind everybody to pray for our newly reassigned priests.

Ri-DONK-ulous

I've been listening to Mac and Katherine for years and every episode is a DEE-lite. Have you ever met that couple where both of them are so funny and play off each other so well that it keeps you laughing the whole time? It would be nice if that were Mac and Katherine... JUST KIDDING! That's exactly M

Fun show to enjoy

I've been listening for a few years now and really enjoy hearing from Mac and Katherine every week. I always have a smile on my face after every episode. I love Katherine's laugh.
