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!
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!
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!
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.
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!
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!
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.
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 →
July 31 is the Feast of St. Ignatius, a personal favorite among all of us here at Church Drunk. In honor of good ol' Iggy of Loyola, we take a deep dive into the life and times of the man himself, as well as the Jesuit tradition that has followed in his wake. Fire up your favorite divine libation and jump on in!
So I've been thinking a bit about the saints after our first go-round with a "Drunk Lives of the Saints" podcast, which was rather, um...(sound of thesaurus pages flipping (yes, I have a paper thesaurus, because I am, genetically speaking, part brachiosaurus))...besotted. Sounds fancy and intelligent, right? Well, let's just go with that, then. ... Continue Reading →
