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!

hiphop, new parents, rap, social media
WE HAVE CHAPTERS! SKIP AROUND! Many topics, but the 4 big ones are: Rap: Are we East Coast or West Coast? Gomer's Review of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. Luke's Baby Girl is on her way as Gomer gives parenting tips. Finally, Gomer regards all social media, esp. Twitter, as a Dark Tornado of Violence, and shuts it down.

godfather, harry potter, mad men, meaning, purpose, the west
We talk about random things popping into our news feeds, then Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, the last season of Mad Men and why it matters, and how Godfather delivers a complicated moral message without being beige moralism. And all of the above as it relates to the death of meaning and the death of the West.

We start with goofiness. Then go into Gomer's sheer exhaustion with sorting out the facts and the blasts. Thanks to BetterHelp.com for sponsoring this show!

Cussing happens. This is a whole show dedicated to nothing. You may laugh.

This show on the racism and riots in our country was recorded last Monday. This is not a news show. This doesn't cover autopsy reports or the President's appearance at various churches/shrines. It walks through bits of history (Tulsa Race Massacre of 1921, Reconstruction, Whites Only drinking fountains, etc.) and commentary on today's violence. Start with the JP2 quote from Christifidelis Laici in the show notes. Then listen.

anger, catholic, passions, virtue
First, we break down our latest, most convicting 3-star review ("They'd probably agree"). Second, Luke asks, "What am I supposed to do with my anger?" Our answers involve St Francis de Sales, St. Thomas Aquinas, and Rage Against the Machine.

catholic, donations, harry potter, marriage prep
Quick catchup on Harry Potter reading, then a dive into Marriage Prep, Grace & Nature, a really small bit on Star Wars numbness, followed by Luke examining the non-profit world of giving and how that will and will not affect a lot of churches.

I have never read Harry Potter. These two have and love it. So we talk. Also, happy birthday Joe Rudolph!

actors, broken, catholic, geek
In this episode, we discuss the fakeness of acting and why the Church Fathers hated it and how that applies to our lives. Then we take fun and thoughtful listener questions from our Facebook Live video and answer them relatively briefly, for a change.

From Quarantine self-hatred to Captain Marvel critiques, to the main topic: confront the evil within us and own it or create endless scapegoats.

You know it's bad when Gomer is listening to Staind. Also, we talk about the falsehood of the American Work Ethic and the dangers of Remote Work without formal processes.

catholic, college parties, mcu, movies
This is largely an At-The-Movies episode. We have chapters, so enjoy skipping around to what suits you. We also have a bonus interview at the end of the show. Finally, we have two sponsors: PolicyGenius.com and CatholicSocial.Media!

Luke is not done with Catholicism. Luke is done with online talking about Catholicism.

catholic, christian, glory days, quarantine
This one is for the true story-tellers out there. You know who I am talking about: those brave souls who are compelled to one-up each other, to interrupt and talk over each other, just to tell one slightly related story after another. Here's to you, Narcissist!

Our first ever Livestream right onto facebook.com/catchingfoxespodcast! This was recorded on Monday evening. We talk COVID-19 and... hmmm... YOUR QUESTIONS! Also, Gomer's entire rig - microphone, headphones, USB hub and $3,000 laptop, AND HIS WHITE CLAW CAME CRASHING DOWN!

Gomer inserts a summary here. Or does he? Does anyone? ...Yes I do. We talk about COVID-19, then I reintroduce the topic of Acedia through the philosophical/secular lens of David Goggins. Freakin' Goggins, man.
