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 on the road trip to Banff, led to the creation of Catholic Stuff You Should Know. The hosts are not radio talents, but regular guys who happen to be Catholic priests. In its essence, the podcast is the fruit of priestly friendships of the Companions of Christ.

Catholic Comments episodes run 15-20 minutes in length and consistently feature interesting interviews with academics, ministers, artists, missionaries, and many others. The conversation is accessible and insightful, and I have learned a great deal from listening. Moreover, their almost ten year backlog of episodes is rich in topics ranging from the liturgy of the hours to Jesuit Refugee Services, the Da Vinci Code to the martyrdom of Oscar Romero.
The On Being podcast aims to “open up the animating questions at the center of human life: What does it mean to be human, and how do we want to live?” The interviewees include theologians and ministers, but also politicians, scientists, musicians, and people from all walks of life. The hour long episodes featured in depth conversations about the interviewees spiritual background and how that may have influenced their life’s work
Think of Catholic News Agency as the five o’clock news of everything Catholic. You’ll find local and national Catholic news, movie and book reviews, as well as discussions on the moral and spiritual issues of the day.
Created by former Jesuit Andy Otto, God in All Things is a wonderful way to learn about Ignatian spirituality. Produced weekly, most episodes are 4-8 minute meditations that endeavor to help the listener find the presence of God in one’s everyday life. The podcast also occasionally runs reflection series, including the recent “Purple Rain” series this past Lent, “Discerning Advent” last December, and last summer’s 10 week “Desires of the Heart” series on introducing Ignatian spirituality. Through its mixture of spoken word, music, and sound effects, this podcast has frequently provided a nice meditative moment during my commute to work.
