Welcome back to the Daily Theology Podcast! Today’s episode features Steve Okey’s conversation with Jason King of Saint Vincent College in Latrobe, PA! Jason and Steve caught up at the CTS conference this past summer in Newport, RI. In this conversation, they talk about how Jason found his way into Catholic moral theology, his research into Catholic identity and the hookup culture on college campuses, and what to do when a course seems to fall apart. They also talk about science fiction and their love for Star Wars.
Dr. Jason King is a Professor of Theology at Saint Vincent College in Latrobe, PA. He earned his BA from Berea College, and his MA and PhD from the Catholic University of America. His research focuses on moral theology, with particular interest in relationships, families, and Catholic identity. He is the author most recently of Faith with Benefits: Hookup Culture on Catholic Campuses (Oxford, 2017). He has also co-written two books with Donna Freitas: Killing the Imposter God: Philip Pullman’s Spiritual Imagination in His Dark Materials (Jossey-Bass, 2007) and Save the Date: A Spirituality of Dating, Love, Dinner, and the Divine (Crossroad, 2003). He is a blogger for Catholic Moral Theology.
