For our last dip in the double digits, we decided to cast off lenten austerity measures and get a little crazy. And by crazy we mean tipsy. And by tipsy we mean it's time for Drunk Lives of the Saints! It's a Church Drunk tradition, so grab something slightly toxic, and join Dizzy & Ges for a very special Episode 99 - The Drunk Lives of St. Josaphat's Anchoress!
Episode 95 – Joy Ahoy!
Here at Church Drunk, we've got the joy, joy, joy, joy down in our hearts. And if the devil doesn't like it he can sit on a tack (ouch!)...but the devil being a personified construct of the evil we all bear within ourselves, we feel it necessary to ask what the tack represents. On second thought, don't answer that. Instead, grab a cocktail named after your favorite Saint (we're partial to St. Manhattan, but let's face it, most Saints are a bit more Old Fashioned), and join Dizzy & Ges as we continue our Advent odyssey with Episode 95 - Joy Ahoy!
Episode 91 – The Lentys
Awards season is officially here. And Lent...well, it feels like Lent really never left us over the course of this last year or so. And since nothing says "Church Drunk" like taking two good things and ruining them both, we've decided to combine the pomp and circumstance of red carpets and gold envelopes with the sackcloth austerity of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. Grab a glass of something bubbly and join Dizzy & Ges to determine which of our favorite things are the most Lentiest. Ladies and gentlemen...The Lentys!
Episode 78 – Drunk Lives of the Picts
When you hang with Dizzy & Ges, Lent kind of lasts all year and St. Patrick's Day lasts, like, at least a month. And somewhere in that hazy morass of saintly goodness, we inevitably arrive at a Church Drunk original (sort of): Drunk Lives of the Saints! So pour yourself a pint of something lovely and join us for our not-so-soberish telling of the tales of St. Columba and St. Ailbhe on Episode 78 - Drunk Lives of the Picts!
Episode 58 – Drunk Lives of the Martyrs
Have you ever had that "St. Sebastian" feeling where you've been pierced with enough arrows to make you look like a beatific porcupine, but you're not quite dead yet? Ever had your eyes (or other bits) put on a platter for the world to ogle (metaphorically speaking, of course)? Well then, this very special episode of Church Drunk is for you. Time to pour one out for the martyrs, y'all!
Episode 34 – Saints on the March
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.
Episode 24 – Drunk Lives of December
Well, December is nearly over, and with it goes Advent. It would seem appropriate to wrap-up our 4(ish) weeks of preparation with a nice little retrospective, or a look toward Christmas. But since when have Dizzy & Ges been appropriate? Instead, Church Drunk invites you to join us for a very special December edition of Drunk Lives of the Saints!
Episode 20 – Happy Hallows Eve Bonus!
You knew we couldn't resist a little Halloween bonus action, right? And on top of that, Halloween leads us straight to the Feasts of All Saints, All Souls, and Dia de los Muertos. It's, like, a Church Drunk ghost and ghoulie extravaganza! So if you love tricks, treats, skeletons, skulls, and deep dives into demonology...this episode is for you!
Episode 15 – Nuns Kick the Habit
Do you ever wonder why it is called "Mother Church" when it so often refuses to give women their due as faith-filled motivators for positive change and all-around rock stars? So do we. In this episode, we do our best to recognize the amazing work of nuns and other women who lead the way toward a church where justice is at the top of the priority list.
The Examen: Iggy’s Greatest Gift
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 →
