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!

Gomer and Luke start out with some banter, then follow-up. The topic for today is contrasting "The Falcon and the Winter Soldier" with "For All Mankind" in the areas where they treat social issues. Gomer bashes the crap out of Marvel for their inability in this show to not be on the nose and praises the writers and actors of "For All Mankind" so creating such compelling characters that you actually think they are, you know, human.

art, atonement, dumb and dumber, marxism
We each brought a topic, but I sidetracked the Hell out of us both. Topic One: Gomer's critique of the bloody Marxist critique of corporations stealing our future, and Luke's reasoned response involving Catholic Creatives and art stuff. Topic Two: GOMER CAN'T STOP TALKING ABOUT ATONEMENT THEOLOGY, but today's twist is how Gomer discovered via YouTube how much the Orthodox hate Catholics and how the Taylor Marshall of American Orthodoxy is an old woman.

Luke and I banter for 20 minutes about grad school, Gomer redoing his office, etc. Then we introduce the subject and Gomer cries a lot. Eternal rest, grant unto her O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon her. May she rest in peace. Amen. May her soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

The one where luke once again talked about stuff he probably should have shared with gomer first... whoopsie! Luke is taking a leadership course for his Grad Degree at NOTRE DAME and he decided to apply it to a "Catholic Stuff You Should Know" episode (Leaving the Zoo) to explain to Gomer the reality of the Catholic Church today.

WORK CULTURE. Lukey got a new job. I asked, "How'd ya know it's time to move on?" This is a show about figuring out your place, your role, your job, your career, and your culture. It's about when you know to say "YES" to a new opportunity and when to say "NO", too. Culture, especially in Church Work, can be never tricksy!
