Episode 40: Abortion

This is a special episode this week! We are talking about Abortion with Rev. Katey Zeh. She guides us through some biblical references used by both sides of the abortion debate, talks about it’s history as a political issue, and encourages everyone (Christian or not), to examine this issue for themselves. Our saint is Saint Germain Cousin, who lived in a cupboard under the stairs but definitely wasn’t Harry Potter.

Episode 39: Hildegard

We are turning the tables this week and Shannon is taking over the episode! Listen as she makes her case to Bryan about why Hildegard should be the Patron Saint of Podcasts. Our actual patronage pop quiz this week is about Saint  Bernard of Clairvaux, who was so charismatic in his preaching, even his dad became a monk.
