Host with the (koff koff) mostest

Monday and yesterday I filled in for radio host Jerry Usher on Catholic Answers Live in San Diego.

Got to interview a living saint, Father Benedict Groeschel, CFR, as well as speak with ultra super duper uber apologists Patrick Madrid and Steve Ray, along with Catholic Answers staff apologist Jim Blackburn.

What a blast.

Radio hosting. Me likee.

Awesome job Patrick - I just listened to the shows on podcast and I thought you filled Jerry's shoes nicely! Hopefully we'll hear you on the show again soon.

Well this is Matt from Ontario (north of Toronto). I just found your blog after listening to the shows so I'm having a fun time reading back a bit - I also thought I should mention I'm just a little jealous that you got a chance to interview Fr. Groeschel. Keep up the good work Patrick.

Hi Matt:

Well, welcome to Seize the Dei. Usually people know of the blog first, as I didn't mention it on the radio.

Yeah, Father B is a saint. When I worked in media relations for Franiciscan University, I squired him around the place, got him to interviews and drove him to the airport. I'd also interviewed him for an article about Ven. Solanus Casey, with whom Father lived for a year in the 1950s. Good man, great priest.

Haha yeah, I got in a habit of searching for the websites of guests on the Catholic Answers shows (and apparently hosts now too). It's one of my many strange traits - but I couldn't resist when you mentioned that a Canadian caller was from your "home and native land."

Thanks for the welcome - I'll be following along from the other side of the continent...even from under all this snow.

Snow, yes, I seem to remember that -- a cold white substance that falls from the sky. Hmmmm, I think so.

Shoot. I'm sorry I missed this. I've been very lazy about checking blogs lately. It won't happen again, I promise.
