Without Love, It’s All Just Peas and Carrots

Miss Jane gets a tongue lashing, Mr. Bodine speaks in tongues. Things go dark as Fr. Joseph interviews Dr. Indadark. In the end, lacking the main ingredient, it's all just peas and carrots. Suffice it to say: Love covers a multitude of podcasts.

Aidan’s Song - A Year in the Life of a Parish Priest

On this special edition of the Orthodixie Podcast, Fr. Joseph interviews the author of the new Conciliar Press book Aidan's Song: A Year in the Life of a Parish Priest. The book has been compared to the "Far Side" cartoon and the TV show Married With Children—but nothing quite compares to Fr. Aidan Wilcoxson's singing a rather surprising number on this very podcast. Aidan's Song is an insightful, moving, and often hilarious personal snapshot of a year in the life of a parish priest. Enjoy!

They Will Know We Are Christians By Our ... Blogs?

What's the difference between Orthodox Christians' participation on the Internet and, say, secular scoundrels? Sometimes, it seems, not much. Fr. Joseph admits his foot's been in his mouth but his tongue's still in his cheek; in other words: "Let's be careful out there!"

We Came, We Saw, We Converted

A blatantly commercial message for Fr. Joseph Huneycutt's new book, "We Came, We Saw, We Converted" (Conciliar Press). It's a humorous look at a book that takes a humorous look at Orthodoxy. But what else would you expect from the Orthodixie?
