50 - How Far is Too Far

Episode 50 · July 8th, 2016 · 1 hr 9 mins

About this Episode

Luke tells us a hilarious tale about this one time at Franciscan (drink!) that he auditioned for Macbeth and was shunned by theater nerds. This opens us up to talk about Luke's love life and past relationships, a common theme here at Catching Foxes. Then we talk about Lethal Weapon and My Cousin Vinny for a few moments, as well as having the priest face East during Mass.

Then we enter the fray. How far is too far? This is the question that drives us back into Luke's love life, but only after Gomer tells a 4 minute story about being a pubescent boy with wild hormones trying to control himself in the presence of a girl. Yes, it's about erections. Yes, it's hilarious. And yes, most humans should probably just skip it. (Get Overcast as your podcast player and it'll show you chapters so you can skip to the next part! or re-listen!)

We discuss (not instruct!) about balance, dating, experimenting, failing, and what it means to obey the moral laws on sexuality and to live the virtues within those laws. 

We end it with Luke's shocking declaration that he is addicted to his iPhone and will be giving it up for at least 90 days. He's getting a dumb phone, an old iPod, and I guess some road maps to figure out how to get around town. He's addicted. 

We end with a contest: Write a review on iTunes and we will enter you in a contest (US Residents only!) to win After Virtue (or some other book). Only those who enter today (Friday, July 8, 2016) are eligible. I will gather all new reviews, put them in a hat, draw the winner and announce the winner in two weeks (after work trips are done). Direct message us on Twitter or Facebook if you're the name we chose to get your winnings!
