phils son ,

Great podcast

I love how they are humorous and they still talk about the faith

Sammy's Nanny ,

2 brilliant apples from the (un) Barron tree

Wow oh wow oh wow!! Does Ben Barron sound just like his dad! Every time I hear Ben speak I think it has to be very similar to the younger Mac Barron. It’s uncanny. Ben and Sam’s review of the movie Moonlight was very entertaining. I especially loved how they characterized Oscar Isaac as being from Star Wars and no other movie or show. I only know Oscar Isaac from the HBO show Scenes from a Marriage . Perspective of two different ages. Mac and Katherine,I’ve said it before and I will say it again, you certainly are doing a fine job with these boys and I look forward to many years of their productions in the studio.

Five Stars because Ten is not an Option!

Enjoy listening to Catholic In A Small Town while running in my small town.
