The View from Down Here: May 22, 2012

iTunes logo for the 15th Station

With there now being a two-horse race for the presidential campaign, President Barack Obama and challenger Mitt Romney have started what will be a lengthy battle of advertisements making the case for their nomination — or against their opponent. Brendan and Gavin discuss the contrasting tones of the ad, and the continuing trend of President Obama’s campaign to insert its collective foot in its mouth, as it did with this ad. Or you can click here to see the Romney ad, “Day One”. The guys also talk about threats against a Catholic parish in Massachusetts over same-sex marriage and the controversy that keeps on going — the contraceptive mandate as part of the president’s health care package. No shortage of meaty stories in this week’s issue.

The 15th Station is our active monthly news podcast.  We get a panel of Kiwi Catholics together to provide a Catholic perspective on the news and current events of the month.
Catechiwi is our archived catechesis podcast where we get a guest theologian from around the country or the world to speak on an aspect of the Catholic Faith.
Ignition leverages our partnerships with organisations like Hearts Aflame to provide a back catalogue of amazing lectures and talks from international speakers.  We divide these talks up into multi-part podcasts.
15 Minutes With The Bishop is a series of interviews with Bishop Patrick Dunn, DD, the Catholic Bishop of Auckland, New Zealand.
