Dive Deeper Into the Catholic Faith

Catholic Stuff You Should Know
In January of 2010, Pope Benedict XVI asked young people to use technology for the New Evangelization. This request, colliding with the introduction to the podcast concept, led to the creation of Catholic Stuff You Should Know. The style and format were entirely hijacked from the professional, well-researched, and rather humorless podcast, Stuff You Should Know. The style has been coined “consciously unprofessional.” The hosts are not radio talents, but regular guys who happen to be Catholic priests. They produce a weekly podcast of what they call “lighthearted explorations into various prominent and obscure Catholic topics.”

Pints with Aquinas with Matt Fradd
Ever want to sit down with St. Thomas Aquinas (he is a saint who was pretty smart at all things theology, check out his Summa Theologica if you’re feeling daring)? Well in this podcast, Matt Fradd sits down and discusses topics he’d address if he had a chance to talk with St. Thomas Aquinas himself.

Overcoming A Pornified Culture

Love People Use Things
Love People Use Things is a podcast run by a Christian (Matt Fradd) and an atheist (Noah). They disagree on a lot of stuff, obviously, but they both agree that your life, your relationships, and society as a whole would be a whole lot more beautiful and healthy without porn.

Integrity Restored Podcast
This podcast will equip you with the knowledge and resources you need to live a porn free life and to help others do the same.
