In Episode 9 Googling God with Mike Hayes, I had the opportunity to hear author of Googling God and managing editor of BustedHalo.com speak. He was the keynote speaker at a local diocesan conference called Identity Theft: Is Your Catholic Identity Safe?
Mike spoke on the two distinct generations of young adults, Gen X and Millennials. He discusses what characterizes these two generations and how we, as Catholic ministers, can reach these two generations and help them connect to the Church and more importantly, how we as the Church can connect to them. He tells us how to do this by describing the different aspects of technology available to us today.
This podcast is longer than most of my podcasts, but I feel what he had to say is important and vital to anyone working with young adults. If you fall in this category, or are a DRE, catechist, or just want to know how to use what is available to connect to others in your parish or around the world, then this is the podcast for you.
I would like to thank Mike for allowing me to record his keynote address and if you would like to purchase his book (which I highly encourage) Googling God, you may either go to the Busted Halo site or to the Paulist Press site.

On Episode 8 The Everyday Catholic Videocast, I am interviewed by Fr. Paul Counce, host of a local Catholic television show called Conversations with Fr. Paul Counce. The interview begins with us discussing this podcast and how I am trying to reach Catholics using a modern media outlet. On the second part of his show, we discuss how different religions are using varying aspects of the media and if this is necessarily a healthy thing.
I would like to personally thank Fr. Counce for inviting me on his show and congratulate him on a wonderful show he has developed. His goal is to reach people within their homes and he does an exemplary job.
As you might have guessed, this is just the audio from the show. The actual show will start airing on March 29 @ 7:30 am and will run the entire week at varying times. To check showtimes and schedules you may log onto The Catholic Life Television website for the Diocese of Baton Rouge. From there you can clik programming and see showtimes.
As always, thank you for being a part of this ministry and thank you Fr. Counce for helping me promote this podcast.

On Episode 7 The Seminarians: This Time It's Personal, I interview two seminarians for the Diocese of Baton Rouge....Tim Hedrick (email@example.com) and Joshua Johnson (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We discuss their initial calling and then talk about what life is like in the seminary and as a seminarian. They both currently attend St. Joseph's Seminary which is an undergraduate seminary and then will move on to Notre Dame Seminary for graduate study in New Orleans.
