Just a Catholic Dad Podcast

Just a Catholic Dad Podcast is "a podcast about faith, family, and fatherhood." The host, Sean McCarney, is a Catholic with a non-religious wife, and an adorable daughter named Caitlin. He talks about the joys and struggles of bringing up his daughter in the faith. He's an air traffic controller, so he has an irregular schedule, which brings its own set of struggles into the mix.

Oh, and did I mention he's from the UK? So he and his daughter (who makes occasional "appearances" on the podcast) have awesome accents. Well, Sean's accent is awesome. Caitlin's is adorable!

He also weighs in on the current events in the Church and the world. Hearing his take on the Brexit/Bremain debate was fascinating, since he actually focused on what was good for the UK, as opposed to how it would affect the United States.

And one of my favorite segments is called "Holy Homework." Each show, he'll ask a question about the Catholic faith (something like, "What are the three evangelical counsels?"), and invite the listeners to send in their answers via email. It really encourages people to learn more about Catholicism. And even if you don't have time to look up the answer, at least you'll learn something new when Sean reveals the answer on the next episode.

Sean is very engaged with the listeners, and reads just about every email he receives from them on the show. He offered prayers and condolences to me when I told him about our two losses, and he has asked the rest of the listeners to pray for me as well.

Even though we've never met in person, I consider Sean a good friend. I highly recommend his show. You can find more information about the show at Sean's website, justacatholicdad.com.
