    #053: Wine is Magic w/ Luke Robinson

    Luke Robinson, our bread specialist from episode 18 is on the show again to discuss why he thinks wine, like bread, is MAGIC. For those who remember our conversation about sourdough, leaven, and bread making, you'll remember how effortlessly Luke mines the depths of the everyday. Luke shares how he came to appreciate wine, his own experiences working at wineries, and how this has provided much fruit for his interior gardens.  Plus after this show you'll impress your friends by describing the terroir of your wine.  Let this show hit you like the a good glass of wine, as our friend Luke says, "with a little zing and some zang." However, don't rush it. Remember, the best wine is aged.

    #052: Eat, Fast, Feast w/ Dr. Jay Richards

    #052: Eat, Fast, Feast w/ Dr. Jay Richards

    In today's interview, Nick and Austin talk to Dr. Jay Richards about the lost Christian practice of fasting.  Dr. Richards explains how the wellness trend of intermittent fasting doesn't just extend back a few years but rather back to the earliest Christian communities. We pull on ancient wisdom and modern science to help better understand what fasting is, why we should fast, and where to start.

    Dr. Jay Richards is the William E. Simon Senior Research Fellow at the Heritage Foundation, a Senior Fellow at the Discovery Institute, and the Executive Editor of The Stream.
    Dr. Richards is author or editor of more than a dozen books, including the New York Times bestsellers Infiltrated (2013) and Indivisible (2012); The Human Advantage; Money, Greed, and God, winner of a 2010 Templeton Enterprise Award; The Hobbit Party with Jonathan Witt; and Eat, Fast, Feast. His most recent book, with Douglas Axe and William Briggs, is The Price of Panic: How the Tyranny of Experts Turned a Pandemic Into a Catastrophe.
    You can learn more about Dr. Richards in the links below.

    #051: Catholic "Communes" & the Rule of St. Augustine

    #051: Catholic "Communes" & the Rule of St. Augustine

    We're talking communes, but keep your clothes on, people. Today we explore the Rule of St. Augustine and his vision for a common life for lay Christians. There's more to this than s'mores, fire dances, and optional clothing.

    After his baptism, Augustine founded a  community of laymen with whom he shared life and prayer. His community was oriented around a Rule designed to bring its members closer to God and neighbor. Eventually, the Rule was extended to priests and became what is now the oldest monastic rule in the Western Church. Nick, Tyler, and Austin discuss how Augustine's principles would fit in with their own Catholic "commune," or intentional community, dreams.

    Show Highlights
    Who was St. Augustine and why did he start a Rule of community living?Why do secular communes often lead to disaster?Did Augustine think a pure democracy would work in the monastery?Was Augustine a communist?Can "commune" members go on personal shopping sprees?Could we play Settlers of Catan on our "commune"?What would be the most difficult parts of living together?What are the keys to fraternal correction?Can there be snacks?Links

    #050: Urban Farming w/ Stephen Storey

    This week, Tyler sits down (in-person!) with a new friend and local agricultural entrepreneur. Stephen Storey is the founder and co-operator of Storey Family Farms in South Bend, IN. During this episode, Stephen shares his own story, the many things he has learned and experienced out on the farm, and his vision for a more sustainable, nutritive, and spiritually enriching approach to agriculture. Stephen believes that there is tremendous opportunity to use the available green spaces, in our cities across the country, to feed our people, sequester more carbon, and re-enchant the culture. Tune in for talk about puppies, chickens, permaculture, and a more sustainable future.

    #048: Male and Female He Created Them

    #048: Male and Female He Created Them

    On today's episode, Nick and Tyler break open the Vatican document "Male and Female He Created Them: Towards a path of dialogue on the question of gender theory in education." Published in 2019, this document is meant to provide Catholic educators — and anyone else with an interest in the subject — guidance on dealing with the gender issues being broadly debated in today’s culture. As the title suggests, we're called toward a path of dialogue while seeking to more fully understand the Church's teachings on the fundamental differences between male and female in God’s plan. Sometimes we want to avoid the "dark and difficult" conversations, so this is an honest attempt to plumb the depths by asking questions in the pursuit of Truth, Beauty, and Goodness.

    Show Highlights
    Where did this document come from and why now?How does affectivity and gender play into the the “educational crisis"?What's the difference between sex and gender?How do freedom and choice play into gender theory?What does Genesis say about male and female? Why should we take it seriously?What's the role of the Catholic school in accompanying families of all backgrounds and circumstances?Links
