Religion & Spirituality Podcasts

Luke and Gomer became friends Freshman year at the Franciscan University of Steubenville and 14 years later they started a podcast. The show oscillates between a conversation between just the two of us and interviews that we do together of other, fancier people. Sometimes we get explicit either by being too honest or by being too stupid. Either way, it's fun!

Episodes

Marvel vs. NASA

5/7/2021
Gomer and Luke start out with some banter, then follow-up. The topic for today is contrasting "The Falcon and the Winter Soldier" with "For All Mankind" in the areas where they treat social issues. Gomer bashes the crap out of Marvel for their inability in this show to not be on the nose and praises the writers and actors of "For All Mankind" so creating such compelling characters that you actually think they are, you know, human. Just when you think the villains are pure villains, they...

Dumb and Dumber as Cultural Lighthouse

4/30/2021
We each brought a topic, but I sidetracked the Hell out of us both. Topic One: Gomer's critique of the bloody Marxist critique of corporations stealing our future, and Luke's reasoned response involving Catholic Creatives and art stuff. Topic Two: GOMER CAN'T STOP TALKING ABOUT ATONEMENT THEOLOGY, but today's twist is how Gomer discovered via YouTube how much the Orthodox hate Catholics and how the Taylor Marshall of American Orthodoxy is an old woman.

4 Big Topics: Gomer's Update, Atonement Theology, Wokism and Gospel Dignity, and Super League

4/23/2021
Special thank you to all of the Patrons and fans of the show that have prayed for the Gormley family! *Topic One (about 20 minutes): * We are healing and still hurting a lot, too. I have read every email, comment, and text from you all and even read them to my wife before her D&C surgery. Topic Two (about 40 minutes): Gomer has been doing a lot of reading and research into Atonement theology, especially as it revolves around St. Paul's enigmatic phrase, "Works of the Law". There's a great...

Her Name is Hope

4/16/2021
Luke and I banter for 20 minutes about grad school, Gomer redoing his office, etc. Then we introduce the subject and Gomer cries a lot. The name of the wood is called "Purpleheart" and it is a South American hardwood that is super dense. The wood will turn brown over time after it is milled, so the use of sealants is a must to keep that intensely beautiful purple shade from fading. Also, its density makes it notoriously hard to deal with, as the sap will gum up your table saw blade very...

All the Red Threads (Fixed Version)

4/9/2021
Have you ever had a debate with a famous person about Jesus entirely in your head? This is Gomer's failed tale of reaching Joe Rogan. Living in a 2 Suns galactic neighborhood Biological evolution through the common ancestor Mimetic Knowledge, Language, and Culture "In the Beginning was the Word" The lack of culture in apes after 7 million years The Hero Myth (knower, the known, the unknown, curiosity, courage, boons for one's companions) Jesus Christ is the Ultimate Hero, He's not a Myth,...

The Lost SEEK21 episode

4/2/2021
We love SEEK, so we made a very Catching Foxes podcast for the virtual SEEK21 conference this year and it was ...not allowed. Well, it's Good Friday and I don't want to record a new episode, so here it is, with a FRESH new introduction! Happy Birthday, Lee!

Don't Ruin Your Wedding... also thoughts on rap and sexual incompatibility

3/26/2021
Don't let the Wedding Industry ruin your Marriage. We discuss the extremes of idiots who miss the glorious communal celebration that is Holy Matrimony. Then we talk about rap-as-scapegoat in our culture. Finally, Moira asks about whether sexual incompatibility is a secular thing or a Catholic thing, too.

When it's time to move on

3/12/2021
WORK CULTURE. Lukey got a new job. I asked, "How'd ya know it's time to move on?" This is a show about figuring out your place, your role, your job, your career, and your culture. It's about when you know to say "YES" to a new opportunity and when to say "NO", too. Culture, especially in Church Work, can be never tricksy!

How to Cancel the Future

3/5/2021
Three Main Topics: Gomer talks with two youths who experience the lack of reciprocity between faith and the sacraments, Luke explores the Marxist critique of music culture as future-canceling, and Gomer buys a gun, which sets off Luke's red flags. Paragraph 5. Secondly, scientific and technological knowledge, which is so prestigious today, tends to impose itself as a single model in all fields of knowledge and for all kinds of objects. Its radical orientation towards certainty of an...

Luke Does COVID

2/26/2021
Luke recounts his last two weeks of COVID exhaustion. Gomer smiles and nods, until in the empty youth room at 10:30 at night a woman whispers into Gomer's ear, "Hmmm hello". Then, Patron's topics for five minutes. Good questions! Question 1: What should dating intimacy look like? Question 2: What should/shouldn't we do with a new puppy? Question 3: Who would you want to convert to Catholicism and why? Question 4: How to deal with a desk/computer job? Question 5: Any tips from a season...

2/19/2021
Luke has COVID and is exhausted, so pray for his recovery and that of his wife, too! I interview Matt Fradd, friend of the show and host of Pints with Aquinas. I ask him questions from our Patrons and we talk about his big move up to Steubenville. Special Guest: Matt Fradd.

Gomer's Ordeal, plus Interview with Fr. Dave Pivonka and Prof. Bob Rice!

2/5/2021
Gomer intervened again, but this time it seems to have been very costly. There is chaos where there used to be safety. After the 30-minute story time, we go into our interview with Fr. Dave Pivonka and Prof. Bob Rice of the Franciscan University of Steubenville!

Heavy is the Head who Wears the Crown

1/22/2021
Ssssymbolism conversation continues! And it's Luke's fault, not Gomer's! Luke brings up the meaning behind a King's crown and how society knew where it stood in relation to it. This expands to a whole fascinating look at modern clothing and how hyper-abundance shifts our priorities in how we look, actually making the wearing of formal attire less important. We discuss how symbols in society end up impoverishing that society. Luke then asks, _What came first: the destruction of the symbolic...

Sssymbolism and why the Sacraments don't make no sense

1/15/2021
Luke and I do some quick check-ins regarding the news in DC, why Gomer doesn't watch the news, and how that can be healthy. Then we take a brief detour and talk Project 86, WandaVision, and such, then dive into Symbolic Representation, Mythology, and why the Sacraments just seem like bizarre add-ons to an otherwise rational faith.
