Faith Full Podcast

CATEGORY: Religion & Spirituality
The mission of Faith Full Podcast is to bring compelling audio storytelling about the Catholic faith, spirituality, religion, and life. The independent, award-winning project is hosted and produced by Tony Ganzer, a journalist and writer by trade, and a Catholic by choice and upbringing. He has reported on many things over 15 years in the US and Europe, from Swiss Parliament to the plight of refugees, but religion and faith have always held a special place. Some say religion is a third-rail for journalists because one wrong move can bring strong reaction. But talking to each other in a measured way, about topics or times that affect us all to our deepest levels, can only be a good thing. This program tries to do this through narrative, sound-rich storytelling. ‘The best antidotes to falsehoods are not strategies, but people: people who are not greedy but ready to listen, people who make the effort to engage in sincere dialogue so that the truth can emerge; people who are attracted by goodness and take responsibility for how they use language..’ Pope Francis, 24 January 2018
