Many months ago, as I began to create storylines and episode ideas for an entire season on Beauty, I came across an interesting dilemma: how to talk about beauty when our world has so many ideas about it? It seemed to be that the only way to have an honest and real discussion about the importance of Beauty in our lives, we have to address the ways the culture has weaponized beauty to cause harm and anxiety.In today's episode, we dive into the heart of our culture's problem with beauty, and how we can better serve as a model for the gift of True Beauty.Guests for Today's episode:Amanda Martinez Beck, writer, podcaster, and author of "Lovely: How I Learned to Embrace the Body God Gave MeMary Rose Somarriba, managing editor at Verily Magazine.

In our final episode of our mini series "On My Bookshelf," Jules interviews one of the most influential figures in the American arts scene: Dana Gioia. Mr. Gioia has spent his professional life attempting to bring the arts back into the lives of everyday Americans, including as an award-winning poet, serving as the head of the National Endowment for the Arts, and ending his career as the current Poet Laurette of the state of California. He is a man of deep faith and love for the Church, and I was thrilled to speak with him about the necessity of Beauty as a means of drawing others into the love of God. Music for Today's Episode:Pity the BeautifulWords by Dana Gioia, music by Helen Sung. © 2018 Co-producded by Helen Sung and Daryl Harper.

In the final episode of our first season, we decided to end with a bang! In the first half of our episode, we journey to the small borough of Roseto, PA, to uncover the secrets to a stress-free life. Using the lessons of Roseto, the second half of the episode tells the story of the Catholic subculture with the help of some friends. :) We interview six different Catholic podcasters, and ask each a single question: what should an authentic Catholic subculture look like in the modern era? Their answers are varied, creative, and beautiful. I'm so happy to collaborate with them on this! Music for the Episode:ExceedingWords and music by Shaun Garrison. © 2015 Shaun Garrison.
