Hi folks! Dom Bettinelli here and it’s been a while since we’ve updated you on the latest SQPN news. Part of the reason is because we’ve been so busy creating new shows and new episodes. We hope you find something here that piques your interest. We love your feedback and I welcome your emails at [email protected], so please feel free to write. In the next few weeks, we’ll be sending out a listener survey that will help us create new shows to appeal to you and to new audiences as we follow our mission in the New Evangelization through podcast media. I hope you’ll help us out by taking a few minutes to click the link when you receive it. Thanks!
SQPN is bringing you more new shows this summer and fall that provide inspirational, edifying, and entertaining listening.
First up is a new show, The Pilgrim Life, hosted by Deborah Schaben and Sandra Garayzar, two veterans of many pilgrimages including the Camino de Santiago Compestela in Spain. Life is full of pilgrimages, whether a physical journey to a sacred place or one that’s more metaphysical, Deborah and Sandy want to take you along on their journeys to find sacred places, both near and far, ordinary and extraordinary, physical and metaphysical, that help you connect with Jesus Christ and grow as a Christian.
Next is the return of Let’s Talk, the SQPN community show that is the successor to Catholic Weekend. Hosted by Fr. Cory Sticha with a diverse panel of regular SQPN panelists, this weekly show includes great conversations about topics of the day, lots of fun banter among friends, occasional guests to get to know, and –everyone’s favorite–Picks of the Week.
In the first new episode this week, Fr. Cory, Mac Barron, and Lyn Francisco welcome Devin Rose to discuss the Catholic Blockchain Project, how blockchain can help the Catholic Church, and the limits of technology in the spiritual life.
Coming on September 4, 2018: the return of Secrets of Star Trek
Secrets of Star Trek will return with Dom Bettinelli, Jimmy Akin, and Fr. Cory Sticha and other friends as well to discuss all things Star Trek, both old and new. With multipe new Star Trek TV series and more new movies in development, it’s a perfect time to renew your Trekkie cred!
