Welcome to Jesuitical, a new podcast for young Catholics hosted by three young, lay editors at America—Olga Segura, Zac Davis and Ashley McKinless. Each episode we will bring you some of the top (and maybe more obscure) Catholic news of the week. We will also speak with a guest who offers a unique perspective on world events, culture or our faith. And we'll ask: Where do we find God in all this?

Excellent Podcast (No Matter Your Faith)
Jesuitical is smart, funny, and real-- this non-Catholic is going to listen religiously.
Ashley, Olga and Zac have a dynamic that works. Light-hearted, but real. Made me want to join them for drinks.
Getting to know our young people
Terrific view into young Catholics in the United States East Coast whose complex lives intersect culture, race, politics, class and the questions and insights of religious faith and practices. Young people will find it addictive, a great group of friends to hang with, older folk will find it a window into our young people's lives, so we may be more present to them and their cares. Great work guys!
