The Catholic Culture Podcast: Ep. 64 – Advancing the Faith in the Podcast Medium

Jan 30, 2020

It’s Podcast Week here at CatholicCulture.org, as we want to
make more people aware of our audio offerings, particularly the two
new podcasts we launched last October: Catholic Culture Audiobooks
and Way of the Fathers with Mike Aquilina.

Both of these shows have broken new ground in Catholic
podcasting, which has so far largely stayed in the realm of talk
shows rather than scripted programming. As more and more people in
the United States and globally adopt podcasts as a source of
entertainment and education, it’s important that Christ be there to
meet them.

In this episode Thomas invites our other podcasters, voice actor
James T. Majewski (Catholic Culture Audiobooks) and author Mike
Aquilina (Way of the Fathers), to talk about how they make their
shows and the effect reading and studying the Church Fathers has
