    First-wave Feminism Wasn’t as Nice as You Thought | Dr. Carrie Gress

    First-wave Feminism Wasn’t as Nice as You Thought | Dr. Carrie Gress

    Most people don’t know about the Marxist, occult, and anti-family trends that became modern feminism.
    Some people think feminism was hijacked in the 1960s by second-wave feminists. But nearly everyone agrees that the first-wave feminism was good.
    However, when Dr. Carrie Gress dug into the history of the feminist movement, she realized this isn’t entirely true. Feminism's history is laced with dark, anti-Christian, and occult ideologies.
    On this episode, Dr. Gress unpacks what she discovered when researching the dark origins of modern feminism.

    Exploring Health Impacts of Hookup Culture | Dr. Joe Malone

    Exploring Health Impacts of Hookup Culture | Dr. Joe Malone

    80% of women don't want casual sex. So, why is hookup culture so popular? How does casual sex affect men and women differently?
    Often, unmarried women have sex to catch (or keep) a man. But premarital sex actually has the opposite effect. Casual sex disrupts the biological bonding process! And it leads to serious physical and mental health problems.
    On today's episode, Dr. Joe Malone unpacks the health problems of casual sex. Hookup culture harms mental health. And it destroys relationships between men and women. He also explains why hooking up, watching porn, and excessive video gaming make men depressed.

    The Price of Life: Exploring the Human Cost of Surrogacy

    The Price of Life: Exploring the Human Cost of Surrogacy

    What’s the problem with surrogacy? How is it different from adoption? Does the surrogacy industry exploit vulnerable women?
    On this episode, Fr. Shenan Boquet unpacks the problems with surrogacy. He also shares his experience in the mission field, where both surrogacy and in vitro fertilization (IVF) are common problems.
    Often, people assume that these practices serve the family. In reality, surrogacy and IVF abuse the rights of the child, couple, and surrogate mom. It’s important that medical professionals, priests, and the laity understand these bioethical issues.
