The Catholic Geeks, in partnership with We Built That Network, brings you a live Internet radio show every Sunday from 7 to 9, Eastern US time. Our very own Declan Finn hosts The Catholic Geek Radio Show, where he brings you rants, reviews, guests, and a whole lot of opinion on things geeky, things Catholic, and often both. It’s two hours of nonstop action, often tackling topics that really ought to come with crusade indulgences.
The format of the show has Declan deliver a short monologue on various topics of interest that have come up in the previous week, and then bring on a guest and spend the rest of the show discussing various subjects that might or might not be related to the main topic of the episode. You never know quite what you’re going to get!
Each link below will take you to the page for that episode. If you join us for the live show, remember that there is both a call-in number and a chat room! Join in the discussion!
