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.
