June 4-11 Podcast

This week, on the inaugural edition of America's podcast, a reading of Joseph O'Hare's "Of Many Things," and Tim Reidy talks to literary editor Patricia Kossmann.
New York Times columnist Ross Douthat tells the story of how Christian orthodoxy found a home in the United States, and how the last 50 years has a seen a national turn toward "heresy." Talking about his new book, Bad Religion, he describes notable trends in the Catholic Church, including what he sees as a diminishment of Catholic public witness due to internal squabbling. He also explains his choice of the word accommodationist to describe liberal Christianity, a term some have found troublesome, and talks about being a Catholic public intellectual working in the secular media.
