A family podcast by StarQuest’s CEO, Dom Bettinelli, and his wife, Melanie Bettinelli, who are raising five kids in the Boston area. They discuss marriage, homeschooling, Catholic faith, their adventures far and wide, cooking exotic dishes, exploring nature, engaging culture and more. Join them as they travel to zoos, museums, and historical sites; get their kids to try strange, new foods; read books and watch TV and movies together; and try to raise their kids into healthy, well-adjusted, and capable Catholic adults.
Here’s how to listen to or follow the podcast. (Don’t worry: It doesn’t cost anything to follow.)
A message from Dom Bettinelli of Starquest - We need your help to continue to produce our great Catholic shows that explore the intersection of faith and modern culture and look at the world from a uniquely Catholic perspective.
Fireworks - Join Dom and Melanie as they discuss their kids seeing real fireworks for the first time; their latest homeowner challenges; a better Taco Bell Mexican pizza; Sanderson and Butcher novels; Nick Fury's return; and a special announcement about the podcast.
We Were Enemies - On Sunday, St. Paul declared us "enemies" of Christ who yet died for our sins, so Dom and Melanie unpack the enormity of that truth, and discuss this week's message of mission. Plus a good recipe that failed to win over the kids, more homeowner woes, and books and TV.
Make Your Amen Matter - The story of a Eucharistic miracle gives new insight into the Feast of Corpus Christi for Dom and Melanie, who also discuss a book by a Japanese Christian; a new Bond-like spy series; Midway; two quick chicken recipes; and red skies.
Fireball Facial - In yet another cooking mishap, Dom got a face full of a fireball, but he's okay. He and Melanie discuss what else they've been cooking: some new shows and old movies they're watching, new and old books they've read, and a Trinity Sunday homily that doesn't stray into accidental heresy.
