Michael O’Loughlin.  They cover a huge variety of topics, including papal infallibility, bikinis, and the Apostolic Pardon, to name a few.  They also share their experiences as parish priests with a great mix of banter, hilarious unedited commentary and solid factoids about Catholic stuff you should know. 
  • Pray-As-You-Go
    • Wish you could spend more time reflecting on Scripture?  This podcast sends you a daily Lectio Divina meditation on one of the daily readings.  Each 12-minute episode is designed to help you to pray wherever you are - on a bus, in a car, at the park.  Every episode includes music, the reading of the day, and a few reflection questions before offering a final prayer.
  • All Things Catholic
