Intellectual thought and formation for the Everyman

I greatly appreciate the caliber of topics and conversation. I’ve learned so much from these podcasts! What is usually plodding and difficult reading is broken down in bite size, palatable AND applicable Catholicism. Thank you and may the Lord bless your vocations and megaphone to the wandering flock.
