Last Week In Life:
October 4, 2021- October 10, 2021
This past week I was moving.
I have felt tired, worn out, and I haven’t had access to write as much.
And here it is after 3 in the morning.
I need to write something for my Week in Review.
So here is something I throw together for.
Last Week’s SPECTACULAR STORY OF WEEK
Some Pods and Tube Recs
Too many voices are not being heard in the Catholic Church today. “The Gloria Purvis Podcast” is a new podcast from America Media hosted by radio personality and Catholic commentator, Gloria Purvis. The podcast centers the opinions, stories and experiences of individuals who have been marginalized in the Catholic Church and in society. A consistent ethic of life informs the conversations and honestly critiques narrow applications of Catholic teachings and ideological attitudes. It’s not liberal, it’s not conservative. It’s all about fostering a culture of charitable dialogue around the most complex and contentious issues in the Catholic Church today. It’s just Catholic. Episodes will release weekly.
Whether you’re into recent discoveries, space exploration, true stories, fitness, fun tests, and riddles, or useful tips for self-improvement, psychology, gadgets, or just your day-to-day routine, there’s something for everyone! You can expect all that and more coming at you in 3 top-quality videos every single day. If you’ve got a thirst for knowledge that never quits, then join a community of tens of millions and growing! We have a good time, so take your shoes off, kick back, and make yourself at home here on the Bright Side of life! Good news! We launched a new app for you � http://bit.ly/Bs3App7 Join the world’s largest community of good people! �
Lore is a bi-weekly podcast (as well as a TV show and book series) about dark historical tales. Each episode explores the mysterious creatures, tragic events, and unusual places that fill the pages of history. Because sometimes the truth is more frightening than fiction.
Welcome to the chronicles of history that your social studies class never covered in high school. This is for the extreme, the unexpected, the untold and the flat-out weird parts of history. Because as weird as people seem today, we don’t hold a candle to history.
‘The endangered Asian elephant may be a conservation success story as its rapid decline appears to be stabilizing. But this has created a new set of problems. With little remaining habitat, these elephants have nowhere left to go but into roads, farms, and cities. This time on Sidedoor, we look at what happens when wild elephants go urban.
‘TodayIFoundOut.com was founded on January 1, 2010, based on the idea that it is always good to learn something new every day. It was originally inspired by the wonderful sub-reddit “Today I Learned“, which is one of our favorite subscriptions on reddit. There also seemed a decided lack of “interesting fact” style websites out there where the facts presented were well researched.
Pints With Aquinas
I don’t agree with every topic or guest who graces Matts’ Youtube channel that features
Long form discussions, debates, and teachings on the Catholic faith.
