I just found out about America Media podcast through the website which I read regularly (although I don't have a subscription since I live in far too many different places throughout the year) & am overjoyed. Please have Jesuitical advertise for you! Their fan base would be all over this

Great podcast!

This is an excellent podcast. I really like that one topic is covered in depth in each episode. The topics are interesting and timely. Even when there's an episode where I'm not particularly interested in the topic, I give it a try, and I'm always glad that I did.
