Catching Foxes

Two guys talking about the collision of faith and culture. Discussion over Instruction. *Occasionally explicit.

About the show

Luke and Gomer became friends Freshman year at the Franciscan University of Steubenville and 14 years later they started a podcast. The show oscillates between a conversation between just the two of us and interviews that we do together of other, fancier people. Sometimes we get explicit either by being too honest or by being too stupid. Either way, it's fun!

  • Husband, Dad, Priest, Oklahoman: an interview with Fr. Justin Fletcher

    August 14th, 2022  |  2 hrs 51 mins

    Fr. Justin Fletcher is a priest of the Ordinariate of the Chair of Saint Peter. He was an Episcopal priest, married with kids, and converted to Roman Catholicism. He is also a student and lover of the Catholic liturgy and explains things so incredibly well. I interviewed him about two months ago in my house at 9pm with my buddy, Brian Jones, and we ended around 2am, which was awesome. This was my first recording using my new soundboard and I screwed up MY microphone. So I apologize.

  • I'd be temperate if it weren't so boring...

    August 6th, 2022  |  1 hr 8 mins

    When goes a good thing become a bad thing? What if temperance looks a lot different (and maybe harder) than just not getting drunk or endlessly binging shows? Worse of all, what if temperance bores me to death and I don't want to do it anymore?

  • Like Old Times

    July 31st, 2022  |  1 hr 13 mins

    Main question: What happens after the gimmick is done?

  • Principles of Liturgy with Dr. Chris Carstens

    July 24th, 2022  |  1 hr 21 mins

    We talk liturgy... OK, OK, I get it. I've been doing this a lot. But, in my defense, Pope Francis is moving and shaking a lot in the liturgy sphere lately. So it's out of my control. I'm a victim of circumstance. BUT I got the literal best guy to talk about this stuff, Dr. Chris Carstens

  • Dr. Abigail Favale on Gender Theory, with surprise guest LUKE CAREY!

    July 3rd, 2022  |  1 hr 28 mins

    I love Dr. Abigail Favale and her work in the Church is much needed. Her new book, The Genesis of Gender: A Christian Theory by Ignatius Press is out and is poppin' fresh. We discuss the main figures of the feminist movement and the core of their philosophies as it shifts into the gender movement: Simone de Beauvoir, Margaret Sanger, and Judith Butler. Then Luke walks in. Literally, he walked straight into her conference room where Dr. Favale was recording and joined the show. His audio sucks because he's on his phone. I spent 40 minutes just trying to make it sound better. This is what you get. Anywho, good conversation. And boy do I miss Lukey.

  • Nothing Excessive: faith and the sacraments with John DeRosa

    June 26th, 2022  |  1 hr 31 mins

    John DeRosa is an incredible Catholic who runs the Classical Theism Podcast. He interviewed me for the show and we decided to dual-release it. His version will come out in a couple of weeks or so because, unlike me, he plans ahead for months. We talk about why the sacraments are not "super-added" to simple gospel faith, but are integral to it.
