Great range of topics and intelligent interviewees

I thoroughly enjoy this podcast and recommend it heartily to anyone with questions about the Catholic faith, whether Catholic or not. If Catholic, the basis for doctrine is clearly explained. If not, I hope it will lead to charitable dialogue about doctrinal differences.
