Great info

Thanks for info that can’t be found on any news outlets. Appreciate your candor in “tellin like it is”.

Concise and Non-Emotional

I’m an American parish worker and find this quick, weekly podcast very helpful for keeping up with the latest happenings while not getting bogged down in the heated conservative/liberal analysis. I appreciate the objective nature of the content as well as Allen’s seeming inability to be scandalized by the messiness in the Church. This is a podcast sorely needed right now!

Very Informative

Mr. Allen does a great job of reporting on the weekly news of the Vatican.
