Taylor is back from NCCYM with stories & insights. Fr. Jared returns to co-host. We have a friendly homily battle and discuss finding a home in a broken Church w/help from the lyrics of “Who You Say I Am.” Leila Miller is our guest this week as we discuss controversial topics like sex outside of marriage & modesty from her latest book "Made This Way: How To Prepare Kids To Face Today’s Tough Moral Issues."
Shaun McAfee co-hosts as we talk about Taylor’s recent trip to the National Youth Workers Convention, why Satan fell, experiencing beautiful Church’s….and we roast each other a lot too…so there’s that. We’re also joined by internationally acclaimed author and speaker CHRIS STEFANICK! We discuss his new book about letting God rewrite how we see ourselves.
Producer Sam and Fr. Jared Cooke were SUPPOSED to be back for this episode but they both got sick in the Holy Land. So instead, guest producer AJ Barrows and I talk about what we would do if we won the 1.6 billion dollar lotto and who would win in a fight: Taylor or a baby elephant. We also have the author of “Jesus Loves Movies” to chat about connecting our favorite films to our faith.
Two year anniversary of Forte Catholic going on the air for the first time! Chris Mueller of “EverydayCatholic.com” joins the show to talk about leading from the pews. We also have convos about Producer Sam’s upcoming trip to the Holy Land, Beyoncé’s “Halo”, conversation with Twitter bots & #InternationalPodcastDay.
This episode we talk about being stuck between a rock and a hard place. We do this through discussions of the Captain Marvel trailer, the aftermath of Avenger’s Infinity War, & a classic Old Testament story. We are also joined by Tony Vasinda of ProjectYM to talk about the work they are doing to support youth ministers across the globe.
This episode has Catholic Twitter written all over it. From our amazing guests (the co-hosts of the Roman Circus podcast), to twitter-less producer Sam somehow being at the center of Catholic Twitter this week, it’s surely a fun episode! We also give you a peek behind the curtains on how the show is made.
This week we find some levity and light in the darkness in the midst of a tough few weeks. We find laughter throughout the show while still addressing the importance of finding hope with the help of some new ideas and a rap song from Taylor’s High School days. Shaun McAfee rejoins the show to talk about his new book “Social Media Magisterium.”
