With Mardi Gras and Ash Wednesday come and gone, we all know it's that time of year again - Lent! Dizzy & Ges are ready to jump into 40-ish days of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving, but not without the requisite of bellyaching and a fair amount of boozy special sauce to grease those ever-repentant wheels. Join us, and jump into Church Drunk Episode 61 - Lentishness!
Well folks, the long journey of Lent has led us here to Good Friday (which, for the thousandth time, is really not that good - perhaps someday we English speakers can join the billions of other people around the world who call it Holy Friday). It is a day of prayer and reflection and joining our own suffering to the ultimate sacrifice of Christ on the cross...and if you're Dizzy & Ges it is also a day for cocktails, because that's what most days are for. Join us here at Church Drunk as we tipple down that most well-worn of Catholic pathways - the Stations of the Cross.
It has been a long Lent. Generally speaking, I aim for daily practices of prayer and something that resembles discipline during these 40 days in the desert, but this has been a year of trial and tribulation and trauma and tragedy and...other stuff, many of which begin with other letters of the alphabet (B and...

Have you ever wanted to just pack up and get away from it all? Perhaps to somewhere nice like, you know, a cave in the middle of the desert? If your dream vacation is a rock for a pillow, gruel 3 meals a day, and naught but the Bible for wild and imaginative entertainment, then perhaps you've got a bit of desert father (or mother) in you! In this week's podcast, join Dizzy & Ges for a wander into the desert to get funky with St. Antony and the rest of the hermit horde.
Okay, so there's just 3 days left of Advent because when Christmas falls on a Monday we throw the entire Week of Love out the window (makes total sense). So perhaps this is a bit let in the game. Nonetheless, it's December 22nd, and we've all been listening to far too much Mariah Carey since Thanksgiving. Far. Too. Much.
Do you ever get that feeling that you're a hamster on a wheel...inside of a dynamo...that's powering a Tesla...through the 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race? Us too! When life just feels too busy to spend much quality time in your local worship hut, Church Drunk has you covered.
We took a long wander down the Ignatian path in our last podcast, and all because yesterday (July 31) was the feast of the man himself, St. Ignatius of Loyola. Sometimes, and particularly when we wake up the day after a feast, we find ourselves in a position that requires a long look in the... Continue Reading →
So lately I've been grappling with God. Not in, like, a Jacobean angel wrestling kind of way, though that story really takes on new meaning when you tackle it with a spiritual chip on your shoulder, let me tell you. Rather, this round of theological sparring is more of a spiritual exercise, of sorts (pun only... Continue Reading →
Church Drunk Season 2 is here! If you're a loyal fan, then you can expect more of the same boozy wanderings through mysticism, unapologetics, and book nerdiness. If you're new to Church Drunk, welcome to the party. Dizzy & Ges begin this season with an examination of Ordinary Time, the most least fascinating of all liturgical wonders!
