E25 Reviewing "The Two Popes" w/John Waters

Reviewing "The Two Popes" On today's episode I sit down with Irish journalist, playwright, and author John Waters to talk about Netflix's hit movie The Two Popes (Mr. Waters recently reviewed the movie for First Things. The movie's critical success has been impressive, and both of its main actors (Jonathan Pryce and Anthony Hopkins) have received Oscar nominations. But underneath the acting performances lies a movie that Mr. Waters calls "misguided and dangerous" because of its completely inaccurate portrayal of the subject matter at hand. Mentioned in the show: John Waters' review of the movie in First Things: https://www.firstthings.com/web-exclusives/2019/12/two-popes-too-many-untruths John Waters' latest book, Give Us Back the Bad Roads: https://www.amazon.com/dp/1782189017/ref=cmswrtwdpUx_LYojEb1F4KMZ2 I'd love to hear what you think of this episode!

"Safe, Legal, and Good"? 47 Years After Roe v. Wade

Episode Notes In today's episode--which is a crossover from Vernacular Podcast--we're talking about abortion--more specifically, how we're moving away from the language of "safe, legal, and rare" to an ideation of abortion as an unqualified good. This is a short conversation, but you may be interested in our longer discussion of this topic that we recorded originally in 2016. See our episode from January 22 of last year (2019) called From the Archives: 46 Years After Roe: https://pod.link/990809952/ep/1000428214082 Links: Alexandra DeSanctis in The Washington Post: How Democrats Purged 'Safe, Legal, and Rare' from the Party Caitlin Flanagan in The Atlantic: Losing the Rare in ‘Safe, Legal, and Rare’ Ross Douthat in The New York Times: The 'Safe, Legal, Rare' Illusion Maggie Astor in The New York Times: On Abortion Rights, 2020 Democrats Move Past ‘Safe, Legal and Rare’ We'd love to hear what you think of this episode!

E24 5 Lessons from the Infancy Narratives

5 Lessons From the Infancy Narratives Happy Epiphany! I hope you had a wonderful 12 Days of Christmas and are continuing the celebration of the Infant Jesus during this week of Epiphany. In today's episode, I draw on Benedict XVI's "Jesus of Nazareth: The Infancy Narratives" to talk about 5 lessons from the Gospels of Matthew and Luke on 1) the Annunciation of John the Baptist; 2) the Annunciation of Jesus; 3) the nativity scene; 4) the visit of the Magi; and 5) the Logos. I also briefly talk about some expansion plans for 2020 and ask you to pray for (and with) me as I discern the path ahead. Also, during Lent we will be doing a multi-part book club on Jesus of Nazareth: Holy Week. Get your copy now (or reserve it at the library) to read along!

E22 "Protestantism Made Me Catholic" w/Casey Chalk

"Protestantism Made Me Catholic" w/Casey Chalk In today's episode we sit down with Casey Chalk, who is a regular contributor to The American Conservative, Crisis Magazine, and New Oxford Review, among other publications. Casey and I talk about his journey to the Church and his recent article, Protestantism Made Me Catholic, which was responding to Onsi Kamel's opinion piece in First Things called Catholicism Made Me Protestant. Among other things, we talk about: Are the Church Fathers in disagreement on the core tenets of the faith? Does Catholic infighting invalidate the Church's truth claims? Is St. John Henry Newman wrong on the development of doctrine and his ideas of private judgment? What is the Catholic position on works with respect to justification?

E20 The Greatest Problem Known to Man

The Greatest Problem Known to Man In today's episode we briefly explore the "Problem of Evil," using atheist J.L. Mackie's formulation, which can be paraphrased as: "It is not possible that all three of the following are true at once: 1) That God is omnipotent; 2) that God is wholly good; 3) that evil exists." Is Mackie right? Is God not all good? Does God cause evil or only permit it? Why? Send your feedback to [email protected] or [email protected] Thanks for listening! P.S. Tune in next week for a discussion about Familiaris Consortio. We'd love to hear what you think of this episode!
