    118: The Dark Power of Idea Laundering

    118: The Dark Power of Idea Laundering

    Have you ever wondered how is it that new terms you had never heard of like “woke,” “transgender,” “privilege” are suddenly everywhere? It’s like overnight these words just show up and are being spoken about by everyone.
    Well, it’s not spontaneous. It’s planned…and it’s called “idea laundering.”
    In a shorter, follow-up to my recent full interview with Noelle Mering on Marxism and the Woke Movement, we discuss the way in which our Catholic faith is being attacked on all sides at once.
    It’s a quick, fascinating look at things like:
    How Our Language is So Quickly Manipulated Why Teacher’s Unions are Hotbeds of Activism (Pay attention, parents!) The Destructive Role of John Dewey (yeah…the Dewey Decimal System guy) The Danger of Disney (Sorry Walt) How to Fight Against This Onslaught Attacking Our Families There are people working hard to radically undermine not just our culture, but even our ability to practice the faith. They’re fully aware that controlling language will lead to control of people.
    God bless!
    Matthew

    117: Marxism, the Real Origins of "Woke," and the Christian Response

    117: Marxism, the Real Origins of "Woke," and the Christian Response

    How in the world did we get here? How have things gone so far downhill, so fast? Organized violence. Churches burning. Society in chaos on multiple levels. What has happened?
    Join Matthew Leonard and author Noelle Mering as they zero in on the "woke" movement – what it is, where it comes from, and what it wants.
    But this isn’t about politics. It’s about spirituality. It’s about the human person. It’s about an attempted radical reshaping of who we are in and of ourselves that is fundamentally flawed and anti-Christian.

    Mini-Cast: Proof St. Joseph was NOT an Old Man with Brant Pitre

    Dr. Brant Pitre joins Matthew Leonard to discuss why - contrary to popular opinion - we can pretty much know St. Joseph wasn't an elderly man who was simply commissioned to care for Mary like a grandpa.

Awesome podcast

Very enlightening!!! Mathew Leonard is a great host, and with a great conversion story. He invites influential personalities of the Catholic Church to make a very interesting but also educational show, however, it is still very witty and easy to listen to. Thanks Mathew for this great gift!

Always pops up when I need it!

I don’t know why I don’t make a point to listen religiously (no pun intended), but God knows exactly when I need to hear Matthew Leonard and/or his guests. This podcast seems to pop up at random times as a reminder... and I know I have to hit “play” when it does. Today was no different. I’m about to run out to purchase a book discussed on his show and will make a point to keep Art of Catholic at the top of my podcast list from now on.

Potential Convert

I have been on the stage of inquiry of the Catholic faith for a few months now and Matthews Podcast has definitely been helpful in pushing me more into a full commitment to the Catholic Church. I’ve listened to almost every single episode and it is hard to pick a favorite as they have all been extremely helpful at answering my questions and concerns. The 80’s references also don’t hurt either.
