In January of 2010, Pope Benedict XVI asked young people to use technology for the New Evangelization. This request, colliding with an introduction to the podcast concept on the road trip to Banff, led to the creation of Catholic Stuff You Should Know. The style and format were entirely hijacked from the professional, well-researched and rather humorless podcast Stuff You Should Know. Our style has been coined "consciously unprofessional." The hosts are not radio talents, but regular guys who happen to be Catholic priests. In its essence, the podcast is the fruit of priestly friendships in the Companions of Christ.

"Anything worth doing is worth doing badly," Chesterton used to say. After seven years, we still hold this as our motto, remaining thoroughly unimpressed with each episode. Yet by the grace of God, we continue to produce a weekly podcast of what we call, "lighthearted explorations into various prominent and obscure Catholic topics." By lighthearted, we mean pour a Maker’s Mark and banter on life’s eccentricities. By exploration, we mean the shared pursuit of the ever-elusive truths of the Catholica.

Behind the scenes, a few of our friends make the Catholic Stuff You Should Know podcast possible. We have a great team of volunteers who help with production, editing, technology, accounting, and legal advice; and we are now an established non-profit.

Thank you again for your support and prayers. And enjoy the banter!

Fr. John, Fr. Mike, Fr. Michael, and Fr. Nathan
