Whether you connect our episode title to Beyoncé, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs or even Vampire Weekend, maps matter. This week we are talking with Molly Burhans, the founder and executive director of GoodLands, a startup that is mapping the global Catholic Church. Information can change lives and Molly helped us wrap our heads around the amazing work she and her colleagues are doing by mapping the Catholic Church, from analyzing the global priest shortage to understanding how a diocese can use its land holdings to prepare for famine.
In Signs of the Times we cover a recent bank robbery involving nuns (or at least their habits), Sean Spicer’s visit to the Vatican, the recovery efforts in Houston and the uncertainty around the renewal of DACA. And in an update from last week's episode, the case of the former K.K.K. member turned Catholic priest got worse. It looks like his decision to come clean wasn’t as pure as we would have hoped.
