#45 Prince Brat and the Whipping Boy: Part I

An Adventure Story

The whipping boy is a tale of adventure that’s right up there with Treasure Island. The author, Sid Fleischman, wrote many great books for boys but this is one of his best, so I’ve graced it with a two part podcast series. It’s a coming of age story, an adventure tale, a lesson in life, but historically accurate it is not as there is no proof that whipping boys ever existed. Apart from that, it’s well worth the listen and you will grow to love all of the characters in this adventure classic.

#44 The Vatican Pimpernel

Crazy WWII Escape Stories

Two riveting stories about World War II great escapes. If you liked the movie “The Scarlet and the Black,” then you’ll most certainly enjoy the first tale which is the true story of Monsignor Hugh O’Flaherty and his jaw dropping 4,000 escape operations orchestrated from his position in the Vatican.

#43 The Incredible Missions of the Mossad

The Israeli Secret Serivce

After reading the book, “Mossad,” by Michael Bar-Zohar and Nissim Mishal, you’ll be shocked at how the Israeli secret service has repeatedly helped America and the west in general, whether it’s fighting Communism during the Cold War or neutralizing Jihadist nuclear threats.

Listen to the Mossad’s insane missions in this podcast.

#42 How a Boy Named Succat Became St. Patrick

The Great Apostle of Ireland

Most people find out a few key things about St. Patrick’s life and then spend the rest of his feast day having a lot of beer.

I don’t have a problem with drinking beer on his feast day, but people need to find out more about him, especially since it’s such a big deal here in America.

It’s difficult to find an accurate, concise and engaging account of his life, but this one by Robert T. Reily in his book, “Irish Saints,” has everything you need to know.

#41 The Cruelest Miles

Sled Dogs and Their Race Against an Epidemic

The children of Nome, Alaska were dying off from an epidemic of diphtheria: where the throat closes off and you die of suffocation. Everything was frozen up in that January of 1925 and the only way to get the diphtheria antitoxin to them was by sled dog. The 20-pound cylinder of serum was passed to the first of twenty mushers and more than 100 dogs who relayed the package 674 miles from Nenana to Nome. This podcast covers the last few musher’s heroic stories, as the last stretch was the most treacherous part. There were 70 mph winds that brought the temperature down -85° F.

Challenge: try not to shiver when you listen to this.

#40 St. John of Matha Poem - Toxic Masculinity and Chivalry

What Catholic Men Should Be Like

Today’s episode is going to be covering a hot button issue in today’s news which is toxic masculinity. It’s an article from the Return to Order website: http://www.returntoorder.org/2019/02/why-chivalry-is-the-catholic-solution-to-toxic-masculinity/

And here is the other podcast I help with: https://soundcloud.com/rto_podcast

But before we get into that, there was a listener request for me to read a poem about St. John of Matha and I agreed because after I read it, it quickly became my favorite poem ever. It tells the story of how St. John of Matha miraculously used his mantle for a sail as he was trying to escape the muslims in Tunisia with 140 Christian souls. I think all my listeners will enjoy it.

Here’s where I got the poem from: http://www.nobility.org/2013/02/07/john-of-matha/

#39 Prophetic Dream About the Church

By St. John Bosco

In our time more than ever before we need to have the certainty that the Catholic Chruch will prevail through all of its troubles. If you want to make a difference in this fight and gain confidence, then St. John Bosco's dream about the Two Columns and a great sea battle is hand- tailored for you.

Secondly, there is another dream that he had on how the Rosary can combat impurity and overcome all manner of vices.

I got the idea to read these dreams from a listener suggestion, so please keep them coming. I hope you'll enjoy the show...
