Did you already listen to this year's Stations of the Cross Playlist? If not, go check it out! If you already did, and you just can't get enough of those 14 little nuggets of suffery goodness, then Dizzy & Ges are here to help. Join us for a deep dive on each station chock full of prayers and booze and quotes from our favorite poets and saints. These ain't your grandma's Stations of the Cross (unless your grandma is awesome...we all know some of those!), so belly up to the bar at the Golgotha Public House, and jump into Episode 80 - Wandering the Way of the Cross!
It's going to be weird not being able to come together to pray and worship in the communal way that has been our custom during these sacred days of the church calendar, but we must keep in mind that God hears us just as well (and sometimes even better!) when we're at home. And that's where our Church Drunk Stations of the Cross Playlist comes in!
How's your Lent going? Are you smitten with suffering? Reeling with repentance? Have you become a fabulous faster? We here at Church Drunk are, well, struggling. (But isn't that what it's all about?) Luckily, we've called in for back-up! We don't often have guest appearances on the podcast, but when we do it's a party! So please grab a glass of something tasty and join Dizzy & Ges AND guest star Corny on Episode 76 - Corny Is the New Cool!
It's that time of year again - sackcloth and ashes and fasting, oh my! Here at Church Drunk we have a special affinity for Ash Wednesday, since it marks the very unofficial anniversary of our very unofficial podcast. Oh, and the whole bit about 40 days in the desert and spiritual house cleaning and whatnot. That's all good, too! As we jump back into Lent, grab a beverage of your choice (something monastic might work well), and join Dizzy & Ges for Episode 75 - A Swift Kick in the Ash!
Good Friday? How about GREAT Friday! Well, I mean, except for that whole Jesus dying on a cross thing. That part of this particular Friday was...unfortunate. Nonetheless, this dark Friday of Triduum is not without hope, as the joy of the empty tomb is just around the corner. Soak a sponge in some wine and join Dizzy & Ges for a deep dive on the time-honored tradition of the Easter Vigil, the Catholic Church's biggest and best (and longest) Liturgy of the year!
If Lent is an entire 40-day season to reflect on how we have been living our lives in relation to Christ and our fellow man, then the first few days of Holy Week offer the opportunity to reflect on how our Lent has gone. And if you (like us here at Church Drunk) are looking back and finding your Lent lacking, then it is time to holy hard this week! The 2019 Stations of the Cross Playlist is here to help.
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.
