Welcome to episode 14! This week’s podcast features guest host Stuart Squires, Assistant Professor of Theology at Brescia University in Owensboro, KY and host of the God and the Quad podcast! He talks with our own Andy Staron of Wheeling Jesuit University about the role of theology in the university, how being a family man has made Andy a better teacher, and his response to various quotes from Cardinal Ratzinger’s Donum Veritatis. Throughout, you can hear Andy talking about how teaching theology is not just about planting seeds, but about trying to give students “better soil.”

Andrew Staron is an Assistant Professor of Theology and Religious Studies at Wheeling Jesuit University in Wheeling, WV. He earned his PhD in Theology from the Catholic University of America, his MA from the University of Chicago Divinity School, and his AB from Georgetown University. His research and teaching focus on the theology of love and the Catholic imagination. You can find all his posts for DT here. Originally from Cleveland, OH, Andy continues to live in eschatological hope of a Cavaliers’ championship and/or a Browns’ Superbowl.
