Forte Catholic Ep 159-Kanye and turning 30 w/Oscar IIX Rivera

Taylor turned 30 this week! Liv Harrison cohosts as they discuss how looking back on the last decade brought Taylor joy.

Our guest this week is Oscar IIX Rivera. He is a youth minister, speaker and musician that Taylor has known for years because of a mutual friend but the story of them actually meeting is strange. Oscar has been influential in the Steubenville Conferences where Taylor had his conversation so they reminisce and then discuss how holiness is just being a carbon copy of a saint. Find Oscars videos, social links and more at oscartwoten.com.

In the final segment, two white people talk about Kanye’s new album because that’s what everyone wants, right? Enjoy!

Forte Catholic Ep 158-Joke Fest, Homily Interruptions & Wrecking Ball God w/Amanda Vernon

Fr. Anthony Sciarappa cohosts in what may be our fastest paced joke fest ever recorded! We chat about our weekends including a tall hat guy, preaching to plants, angry Taylor, terrible travel and making Fr. Anthony speechless.

Our guest this week is recording artist Amanda Vernon! She’s doing great work as the Catholic Alycia Keys through her music and new book “When God Wrecks Your Romance.” She somehow gets Fr. Anthony to recall his dating life before the priesthood and it was beautiful to watch unfold. She is an absolute joy with a fun life story to share unlike any you’ve heard before. (AmandaVernon.com)

In the final segment, we check in to see if Fr. Anthony is giving any good homilies lately and Taylor gets to live the dream of what every lay person has wanted to do during homilies since the dawn of time. Enjoy as you live vicariously though Taylor.

Forte Catholic Ep 157-New Saints, Clumsy Theosis & a Fully Alive Man

Cohost Shaun McAfee was our live correspondent from Rome at the canonization of five new saints this week! He shares about the new saints and the experience of being there. Taylor just shares how the Pope is now a football fan and won him money.

Richaél Lucero, host of the Clumsy Theosis Podcast, joins the show to explain why she is clumsy and what or who a theosis is. But mostly her and Taylor just team up to make fun of Shaun. (ClumsyTheosis.net)

In the final segment, Jake Stanley of Man Fully Alive Ministries joins the show to defend his nefarious cohost and share the impact reading Scripture daily has had on his life.

These are two of the most relaxed interviews we’ve ever done and felt like we were all just sitting around a fire drinking. And now that I’m done posting this, I’m going to have a drink now. Enjoy!

Forte Catholic Ep 156-Third Anniversary Show! Taylor’s theology test & Speaking to Sparrows

Allison Sullivan joins Taylor for the three year anniversary show!!!

Taylor took a 9th grade theology test and…it didn’t go well.

Our guests this week are Janine McGann and Liz Sams to share about the film they created “Speaking to Sparrows.” (speakingtosparrows.com) This was created for young women to reaffirm their worth in God and help them through their trials.

The final segment is, as Allison put it, “the squirreliest segment we’ve ever done.” She tries to speak about what the Lord has revealed to her about waiting but instead they incessantly make fun of each other. It gets off the rails quick. Enjoy! 😊

Forte Catholic Ep 155-Hateful Catholics, superstitions & Dr. Peter Kreeft!!!

Liv Harrison is in studio as co-host. Over a decade ago, Taylor made a promise to himself never to do a certain thing again. He broke that rule for the first time this week. The amount of hate thrown around by Catholics this week necessitated a change of course. We have to be better than this…

Our guest this week is an absolute legend! Dr. Peter Kreeft has been at the head of Catholic thought for decades and was a huge influence on young Taylor. It was a honor to speak with him about his insanely impressive career and his new book Probes, written to help us dive deeper into the Gospel of John(obv the best one.)

In the final segment, Liv and Taylor lighten the mood from the first discussion by talking about strange Catholic superstitions, including a new one Taylor heard about this week.
