In February I had surgery on both of my feet and was not able to walk for the first 6 weeks, and am still using crutches or a cane. Because I’ve literally been stuck on the couch, I’ve spent a lot of time in front of the TV, computer, etc.
One thing that I found very quickly was that the EWTN Catholic TV network is horrible. There are some (only a few) good shows. Most are poorly produced and/or boring!
ON THE OTHER HAND, there is some interesting Catholic media that I did discover. “Podcasts” are a joy to listen to, and now some are available on Video.
There is a new “network” of Catholic Podcasts that has grouped many of the best shows available. sqpn.com/
Shows like THE ROSARY ARMY, and THE DAILY BREAKFAST are fun to listen to, relevant and great entertainment. For more spiritual shows, THE SAINT CAST, the TECHNOPRIEST and a couple others are great shows.
For younger folks, the HANDS & FEET podcast is excellent. The CATHOLIC ROCKERS has some excellent Catholic oriented music with a modern twist. There are many others to look at too. There are also special broadcasts that review each of the Harry Potter books, a Catholic view of the Pirates of the Caribbean, and other popular contemporary movies & books.
Not part of the SQPN network, there are some other excellent Catholic podcasts. I really like the CATHOLIC UNDERGROUND, which is produced by the Paulist Fathers and is geared toward the under 30 crowd and billed as “faith gone digital.”
There are others that are worth listening too also, do any of you find the EWTN TV network lacking?
Have you found any other media that is spiritually good and entertaining too?
