This is my favorite podcast
I started off with just tech podcasts but stumpled on this one. I love it. It's the perfect combination of pop culture, current events, some tech and real life. If anyone is scared it's too catholic they are in for a huge suprise. It's non-preachy feel good content.
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?
Truly one of the best podcasts out there
I subscribe to about 20 podcasts, and it is nearly impossible to keep up with all of them. But the Daily Breakfast is one that is on my "must listen" list. Father Roderick is young, energetic, a movie and game enthusiast, and does a great job covering interesting news and issues. I am not a Catholic, and I would not even consider this a religious podcast. It is better to call it a podcast about life by a religious person. Highly recommended.
