One of the best Catholic podcasts out there
I’m so glad I found it! I love that it isn’t an exhausting seminar, but rather the perspective of everyday Catholics striving for holiness. Also, where else can you find a podcast merging Catholicism, The Office, and Waffles?
Fluffy is good
Tired of the fluff that makes it way into social media or podcast world. The only fluff I really like are fluffy waffles. So I’m hoping that I can someday eat a yummy fluffy waffle and listen to this awesome podcast. I’m hooked after listening to just one!
