S02E07 – Szechuan Sauce Edition

Welcome to another delicious episode of Two Catholic Guys!

It’s been a very long time since we last posted anything. We actually did record another episode, but enough time went by that it just made sense to do a fresh one and write it off as a loss. Enjoy this one! It has probably the best sound quality of any show we’ve ever recorded.

S02E06 – 50 Years

Welcome to another fantastic episode of Two Catholic Guys!

Embarrassingly, we actually recorded almost a month ago, and will be recording again this Tuesday. Oh well. Enjoy! (Note: at a few points there are some weird clicking noises, but the sound goes away pretty quickly.)

  • 00:00: Musical intro, greetings, Evan Williams Extra Aged Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, and our opening prayer.
  • 03:01: Most Ridiculous News Item: Donatos is offering a free smartphone for the purchase of a pizza!
  • 05:04: Serious Stuff: Senate bill to repeal Obamacare stalled until after recess. We discuss a single-payer system as an alternative.
  • 14:23: Catholic Stuff: The Charismatic Renewal celebrates 50 years! How does this correlate to the 50 years since the 2nd Vatican Council?
  • 19:35: Fr Julián Carrón, the head of Communion and Liberation, recently gave a two part interview (part 1 | part 2) about the state of the Church and his new book, Disarming Beauty.
  • 23:28: Pope Francis celebrates his 25th year as a bishop, and we drink the Blended Whiskey Company Half-Century Blend in his honor.
  • 25:40: Pope Francis meets with an Orthodox delegation from the Ecumenical Patriarchate, marking the 50th year since these meetings began. A brief discussion of the Filioque problem and how it’s not needed in Greek.
  • 29:51: There’s a new Greek Melkite Catholic Patriarch! If we reunite with the Orthodox, do their patriarchs become “superbishops”? What happens to the Pope?
  • 33:52: Fun Stuff: The Han Solo movie loses its directors over “creative differences”.
  • 36:25: Joss Whedon is directing Batgirl. Zach Snyder’s daughter committed suicide, so we pray for them.
  • 38:10: Apparently Wonder Woman is amazing. [Anthony has now seen it: It is pretty good, but not Spiderman: Homecoming good.]
  • 39:24: Han Solo movie gains Ron Howard as its new director. The last time he worked with Lucasfilm was when he did Willow. We go on a tangent about small actors. What’s the point of a Han Solo movie with a not-so-much-younger Han? What would make a good young Yoda movie? What kinds of Force users are there besides the Jedi and Sith?

S02E05 – Crazy News, Crazy World, Catholic Guys

Welcome to another crazy episode of Two Catholic Guys!

This show was actually recorded a few weeks ago — apologies for the delay, but real life. We actually attempted recording an interview with someone even before that, but due to technical issues, their side of the audio was lost. Hopefully we can try that again someday. In the meantime, enjoy the two of us ranting as we do.

S0204 – The One Where We Start Using Music

It’s hard to believe, but we’re in the home stretch for the end of Lent. We hope you’ve been having a good one! (And if not, you can still end strong!) Welcome to the most musical episode of Two Catholic Guys!

Our intro and segue music was kindly provided by a friend who wishes to remain anonymous. We also used a few snippets from The Cool Kids’ Black Mags (obtained via Archive.org and heard in Marvel’s Iron Fist show on Netflix).

Aside from using music this time around, we were also experimenting with remote recording. The sound quality suffered a bit as a result, so I apologize in advance.

S02E03 – Global Thermonuclear War Mini-Edition

Welcome to Two Catholic Guys! This is another special mini-edition of the show. We hope you enjoy it!

We got together with our friend Mike to play games and continue reaping the benefits of the Whisky Advent Calendar. This episode was recorded casually and edited down to keep things interesting. Sorry for the quality of the audio, but we were fairly close to a very loud sound machine, and this was the best Audacity could do to remove the noise.

  • 00:00: We introduce our friend Mike to the Whisky Advent Calendar. This evening, we enjoy Mackmyra Svensk Ek, Wolfburn, and Rock Oyster.
  • 03:29: We transition to play testing Brandon’s latest card game: Global Thermonuclear War. Brandon explains the types of cards and basic rules.
  • 04:25: While using Brandon’s new card shuffling machine, we discuss Bill Gates’ suggestion that robots should be taxed.
  • 05:38: Mike tells us a bit about his in-progress treasure-hunting game.
  • 06:17: We go on a tangent about Newman’s Own salsas and whether the art is racist or not.
  • 06:53: Mike discusses the joys of doing home projects with older kids who can actually be helpful.
  • 09:02: Anthony won the game! We share some quick feedback. See ya next time!
