Episode 8: Pope St. Damasus I

February 23, 2018

Ever wonder where the official list of the books of the Bible came from? Well, this guy you’re about to learn about is who we have to thank. Every single one of those 73 books you find in Catholic Bibles was listed out by this guy, at a meeting in Rome, 16 centuries ago.

Episode 7: St. Gregory the Great (LENT EDITION)

February 14, 2018

Lent is upon us, and we have just the pope. It’s the guy who instituted giving out ashes on Ash Wednesday. The former monk. The humble, generous pontiff who basically founded Western Civilization.

Episode 6: Pope Benedict IX (BAD POPE alert)

February 8, 2018

Our first BAD POPE. Called by the Catholic Encyclopedia a "disgrace to the Chair of Peter" Benedict IX was pope not once, not twice, but THREE separate times, and only because dear ol' dad pulled some strings to get him there in the first place.

Episode 5: Pope St. Leo the Great

January 31, 2018

This week we’ve got a pope who was here to chew bubblegum and battle heresy … and he was fresh out of bubblegum. He also once convinced Attila the Hun to hightail it out of Rome. In short, he’s one of the greats. Literally.

Episode 3: Pope St. Clement I

January 16, 2018

Here's a pope who knew personally more than one of the Apostles -- the ACTUAL APOSTLES -- and wrote a document that was thiiiis close to being included in the canon of the Bible. Batting cleanup for the young church at Pope #4, it’s St. Clement I.

Episode 2: Pope Bl. Gregory X

January 9, 2018

This week we’ve got a pope who came to power after 1000 days of an empty papal chair, a guy who wasn’t even a priest when he was elected! Our pontiff this week butted heads with ambitious kings, and made revisions to the Church playbook that lasted for nearly 700 years … among other things. Oh, and he’s also one step away from sainthood.

Episode 1: Pope St. Peter

January 2, 2018

This week we’re talking about perhaps the Church’s worst and best pope. The fisherman of little faith, the Apostle with the keys, the preacher who converted 3,000 in a single sermon.

Why Popes?

December 22, 2017

Whether you’re Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, an Atheist, or something in between -- the popes of the Roman Catholic Church matter. Sure, there are 1.2 billion of the world’s citizens who pledge their loyalty to the current pontiff, but St. Peter and his successors over the last 20 centuries have been a source of fascination -- be it for their sanctity, intrigue, or mere curiosity -- for just about everyone.
