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!

Done with Liturgy Wars, with Brian Jones

5/15/2022
We discuss the liturgy wars from a different framework. Not the annoying "This is more/less reverent" but rather, what are the context and conditions of our current situation that produces malformed Catholics? Why do Catholic lose their minds over the removal of silly nonessentials that get added into the liturgy where they should not be? Formation and Culture matters.

5/8/2022
This guy.

We discuss his St Paul-like conversion within Catholicism, his annoyance with Traditional Latin Mass communities as a grown-ass man, dealing with Pope Francis's comments that cut him deep, his experience of Iraq during wartime, and keeping his faith alive all along the...

Beige Boomers, Rad Trads, and the New Traditionalism with Dr. Larry Chapp

4/30/2022
Yeah. I miss Luke, too. We discuss all things liturgy in this second half of our conversation. Vatican II's theology was great, but its pastoral implementation, which is ironic, was miserable. Also we find out Dr. Larry Chapp is an adult Altar Boy... An ALTAR MAN!

The Batman (Catching Foxes Ruins the Movies)

3/12/2022
Spoiler review. Don't plan on watching the movie? Then you will still love this episode as we discuss the bigger themes, film, and the hero's journey. This review contains spoilers. The spoiler horn is sounded at the very beginning. If you have no interest in this movie, I think you will still get something out of this, especially the art of film and how Grunge still owns us in our late 30s and 40s. Now if you will excuse me, I have to plop in all of the ads and record a new one because Luke...

Gomer thinks of quitting the show

1/28/2022
(sorry for the audio - Gomer's recording gear was left at Church when he did EKSB during his lunchbreak, which seems to fit the theme nicely) "The animal wrests the whip from its master and whips itself in order to become master, not knowing that this is only a fantasy produced by a new knot in the master's whiplash. (Kafka, quoted by Byung-Chul Han in his _The Nation _piece.) Gomer contemplated quitting because he's doing a hundred things and realized that so is Luke with his Notre Dame...

Careerism, the Great Resignation, and Burnout

12/18/2021
