Goodbye JD and Ed

Great show on Catholic topics. I will miss their canonical expertise, chemistry and integrity. I hope the new editors can live up to these high standards. JD and Ed have a podcast at the pillar Catholic. I will be listening to both.

Allergic to uninformed hot takes from secular editorial sections? Here is your antidote.
