Two theologians walk into a bar... No, seriously: This podcast is about the real world of politics and current events, seen through the lens of Catholic teaching and spirituality. Your hosts, Fr. Dan Horan and David Dault, bring you a mix of perspectives, from Abbey Road to Metaphysical Graffiti. Dan is a Franciscan friar and Catholic priest. David is a radio producer and Catholic convert. They both have doctorates in theology. It is the best possible kind of nerdy.

Customer Reviews

Love it!

I’m Protestant, not Catholic, but I work for Catholic Sisters and I think this helps me understand their perspective. Love the hosts and the topics they cover!

Like a spiritual advisor

I love this podcast. It challenges me to think about my faith and how I live it. It gives me a solid base in theology and I learn a lot about the why and how behind theology and church teachings. It helps me work through my own faith journey with insight and compassion.

Itchy and Scratchy

I’m not Roman Catholic, but I have a deep respect for how the hosts’ deep faith traditions are just that - deep, with long histories of thinking about life and faith and how they connect and bring us to a place with more light. This podcast helped me become aware of an itch I had (to hear explanations of faithful concepts specifically brought to current events) and scratches it in each episode.
