Father Ben left his congregation in Binghamton, New York, in the cover of night for the smaller, quieter pastures of St. Patrick’s. As our new, young, and at times progressive priest begins to acquiesce to his new surroundings, he finds himself butting heads with the eccentric parishioners who come to him seeking solace and advice. Whether he’s trying to understand Old Margaret’s “usual” confession; parsing out how Tom can better help care for his wife’s pet pig, David; or getting to the bottom of the Christmas Eve Mass Incident, Forgive Me! explores the intertwined lives in Ben’s new community and the funny, sad, and sometimes painful experiences that come out of confession and the Catholic experience.

    Presenting: Gather The Suspects

    Presenting: Gather The Suspects

    Today we present to you a podcast we love: Gather The Suspects!
    Gather The Suspect takes the traditional locked-room murder mystery with its closed circle of suspects and gives it a makeover for the 21st century. Gone are the stately homes of Agatha Christie and Dorothy L Sayers, replaced with a fading apartment block in a near-future Wales. Mixing comedy, coziness, and a central mystery that keeps you guessing until the end Gather The Suspects is a playful take on a familiar genre.

Non_Sibi ,

Great “interview” style show

It kinda makes me think of “Everything is Alive”. It feels like getting to hear a very personal interview of fictional characters, that allow for the interviews to be very comedic. 10/10

Feel good forgiveness

If you’d said one of my favorite fiction podcasts would be about a Priest & confession, this Catholic-household-kid would’ve been skeptical… but it’s an absolute revelation !!! (See what I did there ??) Forgive Me is superbly crafted in every way, but it’s the shows ability to make you feel GOOD about humanity & life that’ll keep you coming back every new episode… subscribe today !!!

So Delightful
