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!

catholic, clergy, laity, tickle fights
We have the priests from Clerically Speaking on the show (without Gomer for 40 minutes). We talk principally about the role of the homily, the loneliness of the priesthood (for some), and the dangers of professional laity and careerism in the Church. Gomer was late because he was talking with a Reformed Baptist about salvation and the authority of the Church.

anal sex, game of thrones, marxism, twitter
Luke sings a Disney classic, We talk for 11 minutes about Game of Thrones, then yell at Catholic Twitter for not liking the stuff we like. Luke asks, "When you're too busy, what's the first thing to go?" We struggle with pleasing ourselves or the fans, but the fans win when they give us money! Finally... Anal Sex. Yes, this is true. And we end talking about Marxism.

Luke encourages us not to do metaphorical hot takes while Notre Dame is burning. Futile. Gomer points out that the best part of the metaphor is that it's just the roof on fire. We're fine down below, hanging out with the cross and altar. Then we dive into MANHOOD. We end with Game of Thrones, Season 8, episode 1 review. SPOILERS!

catholic match ads, demi lovato, naked, pudding
Gomer got a table saw. He turned it on. He respected its raw power. Then, his eye-protection also got sucked into the 5,000 rpm blade, taking his face with it.
