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!

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.
April 24th, 2020 | 1 hr 48 mins
From Quarantine self-hatred to Captain Marvel critiques, to the main topic: confront the evil within us and own it or create endless scapegoats.
April 17th, 2020 | 1 hr 29 mins
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!

March 27th, 2020 | 1 hr 2 mins
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!
March 13th, 2020 | 1 hr 26 mins
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.
March 6th, 2020 | 1 hr 23 mins
Luke listens to a podcast that's not Pints with Aquinas and has an idea: let's take the theological concept of Sloth/Acedia, aka, "the noonday devil", and combine it with the complete lack of training or purpose many institutions give employees.
Gomer applies it to marriages, with less than successful results.
Then Luke mocks Gomer's pain when he collapsed on our friends' mom's front yard sobbing.

catholic, chastity, sex, young adults
Luke fails at Exodus 90, but pretends he doesn't. Luke solves chastity for young adults. Gomer misunderstands Luke's argument for 60 minutes, then gets it and agrees with Luke WITH NUANCE. Then, we discuss carnivore and everyone's favorite Gen Xer's lava butt. Thanks to CatholicSocial.Media for sponsoring this show!
February 21st, 2020 | 1 hr 45 mins
carnivore, catholic, health, sex
We talk about everything: Gomer has gone carnivore, Luke hates Presentism and sorta likes Rockefeller, Gomer cries about his lovely daughter, then we have everyone's favorite: LUKE MOVES BACK TO HIS HOME TOWN segment.

Patrick and Ethan join us and Luke makes it shine like the stars in the Heavens. Gomer largely watches.

bishop barron, catholic, censorship, jacked, mandatum
Bishop Barron floated an idea out there: social media is the getting ugly and supposed Catholic Theological Experts are causing a lot the problem, so maybe the hierarchy should do something. But then I'm sitting here asking, "Who will enforce it? The USCCB? Seriously?" Then we talk about how, outside of sporting events, there is no real public life, thus Virtual Reality is going to kill us all.
