Intelligent and thought provoking

It is refreshing to hear Catholic news presented in an informative yet interesting way. I so enjoy hearing about Catholic matters in an evenhanded, fair and true journalistic manner. Thank you for your service to the church!

Canonist approved

As a fellow canonist, this is my favorite podcast. I recommend it for anyone interested in an honest, fair, and faithful take on news, current events, and all things Catholic. If J.D. and Ed would just acknowledge the superiority of Boston sports teams, the podcast would reach perfection.
