Dom Bettinelli, a married father of five, and Fr. Chip Hines, a Catholic priest, are friends who have very different experiences of fatherhood. They're also friends and guys who enjoy much of the same parts of life: sports, a good beer, good movies, a good book, getting outdoors, and getting hands on with a project. Join them for wide-ranging and fun discussions about being a guy in the 21st century.

Catholic family friendly podcast
Dom and Fr. Hines are smart, funny guys who discuss a lot of the same things I am interested in: music, entertainment, New England sports, and the Catholic faith. For those who follow SQPN podcasts, this show flows nicely with previous and current offerings from that network (like The Rosary Army, Catholic in a Small Town, Just a Catholic Dad, Catholic Family podcasts). Now that some shows have either ended or gone on sabbatical, it is great that this show has started.
