Welcome to episode 12 of the Daily Theology Podcast! This edition features Steve Okey’s conversation with Prof. Matt Shadle of Marymount University. This episode was recorded late this past summer and features the return of phone interviews! In their conversation, they talk about how 9/11 shaped Matt’s interest in ethics and Catholic Social Teaching, the importance of history for doing ethics, and how postmodernism shapes our students and our teaching.
