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!

Just Luke and Gomer today, folks. We take a break from THE SUMMER OF SCANDAL in order to answer a ton of questions. We recorded for about 3 hours straight, so this is only a portion of those questions answered. Oh yes, tangents were rampant.

catholic, clergy, grand jury, scandal
We interview Bradley Barnes! Yay! About youth ministry! Yay! And the scandal... boo... Also we talk about ending the Imperial Episcopacy, the huge residences that are largely empty, and the reality that, for many high school students, this scandal has yet to hit them. We chat about youth ministry in a parish without evangelism in its culture, but also with a priest willing to empower his people to try anything helpful. Finally, "numbers" and the drama they cause.
