January 29th, 2014 Comments off

(January 28, 2014) Betsy Kerekes is Drew Mariani’s guest on his eponymous show, where they discussed marriage–how to have a better one, Ruth’s recent publication “101 Tips for a Happier Marriage,” and related questions. Order the book on Amazon, or check out the store at our website–it makes a great wedding gift.

Oh, and the conference Drew and Betsy mentioned? It’s called “Healing the 21st Century Family.” One day in Carlsbad, California, full of encouragement, healing, and inspiration–and not a polar vortex in sight. Check out our website for the details.

There are several new things up on the podcast page (and more to come).  Recent additions include:

On the latest issue (May 16) of her radio show, “From the Front Lines of the Culture War,” Dr J interviewed Andy Crouch, author of “Culture Making: Recovering our Creative Calling.”  He’s focused on the things we’re creating and upholding; the “you’re just against this” charge sounds more ridiculous than ever.  (Check out CatholicRadioOfSanDiego.com for more information on the show.)

On May 18, Dr J and Todd Wilken met on Issues, Etc to discuss Germany’s recent decision to subsidize in vitro fertilization in order to stimulate their birthrate.

There’s also an interview given by Dr J to Phyllis Schlafly on Eagle Forum Live, where they discussed non-religious reasons to support traditional marriage and took comments and questions.

Dr J’s most recent episode of “From the Front Lines of the Culture War” is now up for your listening pleasure.  In it, she interviews Bill Duncan, attorney and president of the Marriage Law Foundation, on a wide range of topics.  Their discussion includes Prop 8, DoMA, de facto parenting, and more.  Check out CatholicRadioOfSanDiego.com for more information on the show.

We also have her interview on Issues, Etc, split into two topical parts.  The first deals with the propensity of the Baby Boom generation to solve marital problems–large and small–preferentially with divorce.  The second–graphically–explains what passed for an extra-curricular sex ed seminar at Texas A&M and how it’s related to the widespread use of pornography.
