Ep. 86: It’s Still Thanksgiving
This week we revisit an episode that first aired during Nov. 2019, and offer some pandemic-related updates. EWTN’s Father Mitch Pacwa talks about his annual Thanksgiving hunting trip; we tell the amazing stories of two Native American Catholics; a Catholic couple donates thousands of turkeys for the holidays; and much more.
Special thanks to Deacon Ben Black Bear, Jr. and Mark G. Thiel for the use of the audio of Nicholas Black Elk’s Thanksgiving prayer.

Ep. 83: Adventures in Discernment
This week, we bring you the story of two brothers ordained to the priesthood on the same day; a young woman talks about God’s call to enter a religious life— and His call for her to leave a few years later; and a life and dating coach helping single, Catholic women who feel stuck.
Ep. 82: Nigeria’s Forgotten Martyrs
The persecution of Christians is by no means confined to the Middle East. In Africa’s most populous nation, Nigeria, to be a Christian means to suffer regular threats of violence, kidnapping, torture, and even death. In this episode, we bring you the voices of Nigerian Catholics who want the world to know— and to care— about the brutal persecution they face every day.
This is the last in a three-episode series on Christian persecution.
Ep. 81: The Disappearing People
Now more than ever, Christianity is at risk of disappearing from the Middle East. This week on CNA Newsroom, we bring you the stories of Middle Eastern Christians who are peacefully standing their ground to protect their homeland, their people, and their faith.
This is the second in a three-episode series on Christian persecution.

Well constructed podcast
Newsroom does a great job of conveying stories that might not get air time in other formats. I really appreciate how nuanced and thorough the stories are. This podcast fills a need in Catholic news programming today. Thank you.
Dad jokes Rule
“Never trust an Atom they make up everything 👍.”
I always love this podcast, but Episode 68, about the birth of the Marvel comic about the life of John Paul II, was exceptional! More like this please!
