Summer Sundays are for praising the Good Lord and savoring a refreshing beverage while watching (or listening to, if you're an audiophile) the game that God gave us. To us here at Church Drunk, it just seems like booze, baseball, and churchin' go hand-in-hand. With that thought in mind, join us for a close look at the spiritual and recreational benefits of W.P. Kinsella's Iowa Baseball Confederacy, a book for everyone who finished watching Field of Dreams and said, "I want more!"
Each year, all of us here at Church Drunk eagerly anticipate the arrival of March 17th. It is a day filled with drinking, singing, and general merriment, and at the heart of it all is one of the heroes of the Catholic Church. However, St. Patrick does not hold a monopoly on his little square of the calendar. With that thought in mind, join Dizzy & Ges in yet another installment of Drunk Lives of the Saints, and hopefully we will all learn a bit about who else celebrates a feast on March 17th...and how well (or how poorly) your humble hosts can hold their liquor.
As the Peanuts gang once sang, "Christmastime is here!" In fact, it has kind of already come and gone. Kind of. If you're suffering an emotional (or physical) Christmas hangover, Church Drunk has you covered. In fact, December 25th really just marks the beginning of the 12 days that make up the Christmas season. So grab a cup of cheer and join Dizzy & Ges for another episode, because the feasting has just begun!

We here at Church Drunk believe that mystery is the heart of almost any spiritual pursuit, and that often a good story is the best way of plumbing the depths of mystery. As such, myths and legends hold a special place in our hearts. In this episode we dive into the truth behind stories that are not at all true. Plus, we're keeping it OT as we play a few spirited rounds of Name That Hebrew Scripture Legend...because we are HUGE nerds!
In their first installment of "Drunk Lives of the Saints" Dizzy and Ges reCOUNT (Despite what Ges says, we don't "recant" the lives of the saints. We actually stand by them quite emphatically!) the lives and legends of St. Patrick and St. Brigid of Kildare. Join us in a toast (or ten) to the saints of the Emerald Isle!
“I should like a great lake of beer to give to God. I should like the angels of Heaven to be tippling there for all eternity. I should like the men of Heaven to live with me, to dance and sing. If they wanted I’d put at their disposal vats of suffering White cups of... Continue Reading →
Like so many great spiritual endeavors, ChurchDrunk begins with a dilemma. Do we kick things off with an Ash Wednesday launch, wandering the streets in sack cloth and simmering in a stew of penitent austerity, or do we jump in early with an homage to the vibrant, jiggling, saturated revelry of Fat Tuesday? Well, in... Continue Reading →
