This is the only podcast of its kind

Grateful for this show. Helps me understand what it takes to be comprehensively Christian.

Truly Unique

The topics in this podcast and the manner in which they are organized into thematic seasons—Tyranny, Good Money—come as the specific answer to my ongoing prayers for wisdom and prudence concerning one’s place and purpose in the modern world. Jacob, Marc, Andrew—I can’t thank you enough for your life-long work going into this apostolate. I’m praying for you, and telling all my friends.

Life Changing!

I Love it! It challenges me. It makes sense. Its orthodox. They have truly thought it through. Highly recommend to any Catholic that wants to live lives set apart for the Gospel. It’s also quite entertaining and funny.

Beware! I am in the process of changing all my investments, deleting my Amazon prime, and changing the places I shop. If you listen to this, you will no longer be ignorant. ✌️
