Exceeds All Expectations!
If the Catholic Insider is the gold standard in podcasting (and I think it is) then the Daily Breakfast exceeds it by bringing us more of what we love! I love it all from the whimsical rooster wake-up call and the wonderful regular features such as "the Peculiar Bunch" (explaining Catholic oddities as only an insider can) to the insightful (and often hilarious) riffs about everything from what's in the news to what's on TV. Who knew being a Dutch priest was this much fun?
My Daily Blessing
You can besure you will learn something everyday. Father R has a unique style that fills your heart, mind and most importantly feeds the soul !! Blessing to Father and fellow Pod Listeners around the world.
All Hail Father Roderick!
Father Roderick delivers an eclectic mix of Catholic, Christian, and pop culture content. With his in-depth knowledge of technology, media, and all things spiritual, he sifts through the mass of modern information and shows us the things that can enrich our lives, and how they relate to larger themes of faith and morality. All in the colloquial context of a small-town Dutch priest. Absolutely unique among podcasts and all other media. I listen every day.
