042: An Evangelical Author’s Journey into the Catholic Church – Part 1 (w/ Paul McCusker) January 20, 2020

In this episode of The Cordial Catholic Podcast I’m joined by Paul McCusker, Catholic convert and the creative genius behind the popular Adventures in Odyssey and many of the other popular radio dramas in the Focus on the Family Radio Theatre series.

In this first part of our two-part interview, Paul sits down to talk to me about his faith upbringing, his experiences with creativity in the evangelical church, and questions (and answers!) ultimately led him into the Catholic Church.

Paul is a storyteller by trade and his own story is a fantastic one. I’m blessed beyond words to have been able to hear it and to share it with all of you.
