Mark Shea had me as his guest…


on his show discussing mental health, showing charity, and the strange effects of altitude sickness. While my connection kept getting lost, I really enjoyed this conversation and hope that it helps some folks.

New Podcast: Homesteading, Farming, and Family


11438676715_d6b1e99630_mSo, it’s a dirty secret of mine that I’m what some call a “radical Catholic,” by which those bloggers mean that I think a lot about economics, family, society, and the general human condition. I don’t write about all aspects because, well, I’m not an economist or a sociologist and I respect the great deal of time that goes into those disciplines before you can something that isn’t patently stupid.

Anyway, part of that interest is examining what it would be like for us to start making a local economy and growing food. I explore that in the latest podcast, that is with Ken and Cari Donaldson of Ghost Fawn Homestead.

I’ve been to the homestead a few times and Clan Donaldson has been the most of Christian hosts. And, yes, their six kids are very entertaining and love having strangers around. As a single guy, I love this touch of home. In many ways, I’ve come to call it my home in Connecticut’s quiet corner. There are animals, fields of barley, and six kids eager to show everything. I’m not sure that this situation is the ideal economic model, but for the family it seems perfect.

Well, I’ll start rambling so do please take a listen to the latest podcast. Click here or that handsome image above.

The Biblical Roots of the Mass (new podcast!)


Today’s podcast is mostly me sitting back and letting a theologian do all the talking, which was good as I don’t think I could have added as much. Thomas J. Nash is a theologian with EWTN and a fantastic author. His latest book, The Biblical Roots of the Massis a good book that gets beyond the apologetics squabbles and offers a fine introduction for where we Catholics get our ideas about the Mass, the Liturgy, and the Eucharist. I mean it when I say that he pretty much covers Biblical typology in 20 minutes. Listen, share, and enjoy!

A Domestic Monastery with Michele Chronister


My latest podcast features Michele Chronister of My Domestic Monastery and we talk about a lot of fun things in this one. Namely, her work with disabled adults and what powerful lessons she learned about life, sanctity, and joy from that challenging and rewarding vocation. We also talk about the monastic rhythms of domestic life and the things she’s gleaned from the Liturgy of the Hours.
