Artwork for Jesuitical


America Media

Welcome to Jesuitical, a podcast for young Catholics hosted by two young, lay editors at America—Zac Davis and Ashley McKinless. Each episode features a guest who offers a unique perspective on faith, culture or current events. We also bring you some of the top (and maybe more obscure) Catholic news of the week. And we'll ask: Where do we find God in all this?

  • Interesting, good questions asked, but kinda leaves you hanging

    I mostly enjoyed the recent episode on whether Church doctrine can change. The interviewee was very good but I was a bit put off by the assertion that its really all about the journey. I think in today’s world we all feel very keenly that beliefs have consequences. It’s not just “as long as you’re struggling with the teaching” it’s all good. I appreciated his call to take church teaching seriously, but if I’m a scientist working in in vitro technologies, even if I’m aware the Church prohibits in... more

  • Thank you!!

    Really appreciated your last episode - and many before it! Thank you for bringing your faith, your minds and your questions to the air - you provide a thoughtful, informed, open to modernism, real perspective I really relate to. I also appreciate the mix of components on your show (news, a focus, and where you’ve found God). Now I just have to join in on the cocktail component ;).

  • Gives airtime to heretics in a misguided attempt at neutrality

    Gives airtime to heretics in a misguided attempt at neutrality. No room for debate or correction, guests are never really challenged and anything goes. America (the country) is a place for free speech but the Church and it’s media are a place for that which is true and of God.

  • Don’t recommend for Catholics seeking truth

    I was really excited about this podcast, especially because they talk about topics close to my heart (ie immigration , race , Justice for the underserved). However , they do not operate from an orthodox , sincere , actual Catholic lens. This is evident on any episode surrounding LGBTQ where they often avoid speaking definitively about clear , unchangeable church teachings(teachings that are consistent for heterosexuals as well ). This is dangerous because a fallen away Catholic or misguided Ca... more
