Far too often, we're getting it wrong.
EP000: Introducing The EDIFY Podcast
Today in America, there is a battle of ideas. Some ideas are corrosive and crazy, and are being forced upon our culture by media, entertainment and educational elites. Others ideas are foundational principles and values that built America. The EDIFY Podcast seeks to enter these debates and share the truth of Catholic social teaching in order to enlighten and uplift individuals intellectually, morally and spiritually.
In this inaugural episode, Scot Landry, EDIFY’s Executive Director, and Josh Reznicek, EDIFY’s Director of Video Production, welcome you to the podcast, explain why they were excited to join the initiative, and share with you ways you can help edify America.
EDIFY is an initiative of the CatholicVote Education Fund, a 501(c)(3) organization, which seeks to inspire all Catholics to live the truths of the faith in their public lives..
