Came across Bishop Barron by accident and thank God I did! He is an outstanding communicator, doesn’t try to dumb down his points and is faithful to Church teaching. Try it, you won’t be disappointed.

I have learned so much from this podcast and have truly grown in faith because of it. At a time when so many of us feel the need to hide our Christianity and blend in, this has given me the confidence and knowledge to be bolder in sharing our Good News. I like the topics and I also really like the listener questions.
Never fails to inspire and guide me!

A must for anyone looking to learn more about the faith
Fantastic show, very clear and informative. As other reviewers have said, it deals with weighty issues in an understandable and relevant manner for growing in faith in today's world. The variety of topics discussed is also a very commendable feature of this excellent resource. For anyone who wants a better understanding of Catholicism and suggestions on how and why to live out the faith, I can't recommend this podcast highly enough. Well done to all involved.
Great show for anyone wanting to develop a deeper understanding on Catholicism
This podcast is consistently brilliant and a great antidote to all the trivial rubbish online, especially as it relates to matters of genuine Christian faith. Clear, engaging, relevant, theologically astute - marvellous!!!!
Keep up the good work.
This show is an intelligent and faithful witness to the teaching of the Catholic faith. It always meets difficult challenges to faith head on and in a manner that is helpful and easily understood. I REALLY enjoy these podcasts— they're always worth a listen!
Each episode is a reaching out to those who believe that faith and reason are strangers - and to the religious or non-religious people who want them to actually be strangers, for their own purposes. Plenty of rational thought in this podcast, which is, after all, the basis for faith.
So far as an accessible yet spiritual and intellectually nourishing catholic podcast goes, this is by far the best!
This is excellent and is brilliant for our heart and mind in following Jesus Christ.
If you want to use your Brain and Heart to follow Jesus, listen to this Podcast.
For Catholics of all walks of life and stages of faith development, this is a fantastic show. Bishop Barron and Brandon Vogt discuss all manner of topics relating to the Catholic faith: practice, history, theology, social issues, etc. The discussion is very easy to follow - that is not to say, however, that the discussion is elementary! Indeed, I find myself challenged in every episode, and always have plenty of food for thought and prayer. I can't recommend this show highly enough!
This is such an excellent show. I downloaded a bunch of them to listen to by the pool on holiday in Sorrento. I felt really nourished by the teaching and many thoughts from the show have stayed with me and helped in that continuing process of being transformed by the renewing of our minds.
The show is fresh and contemporary in style, yet draws deep from the rich theological and philosophical roots of the Christian tradition - the unchanging gospel of Christ engaging the shifting sands of contemporary culture.
I'm now an Anglican in the catholic tradition, having recently come out of the charismatic evangelical tradition. I find so many points of connection with my Catholic brothers and sisters, and Bishop Barron's gracious and generous heart towards Christians of other traditions is very refreshing. I can therefore recommend this show to all Christians, and to those who may be exploring the faith, but have doubts and questions that stand in their way.
Thoroughly enjoy the programmes. 10/10 would recommend to all who are interested in learning more about Christ.
