David Gibson Podcast

After a long week in Washington and New York covering Pope Benedict XVI, David Gibson generously agreed to come by America’s offices this morning to record a special podcast on the pope’s visit. Dave was a little tired, but still on top of his game. You can listen to our conversation here. As some of you know, Dave has been blogging about the papal visit over at Benedictions, on Beliefnet. He’s also a regular contributor to dotCommonweal, and the author of The Rule of Benedict: Pope Benedict XVI and His Battle with the Modern World. For those of you new to our podcast, you can subscribe here. Every week (twice a month over the summer) we post an interview with a staff member, writer or friend of the magazine. Tim Reidy
