DT Podcast Episode 37 – Katherine Schmidt

Katherine Schmidt, Molloy College

Today’s podcast guest is Dr. Katherine Schmidt!  She spoke with Steve Okey by phone late this past summer, where they talked about their shared interests in theological engagements with media and technology, how the encounter with Catholic Social Teaching put her on the path to becoming a theologian, and why teaching gives her hope.  They also talk, albeit briefly, about The Bachelor and the Wheel of Time series.

Katherine Schmidt is an Assistant Professor of Theology at Molloy College in Rockville Centre, NY.  She earned her BA in Political Science and Theology at Mount St. Mary’s University, and her MA in Theological Studies and PhD in Theology from the University of Dayton.  She teaches courses on American religion, theology and technology, and religious ethics.  Her research focuses on the intersection of theology and technology.  Her book, Virtual Communion: Theology of the Internet and the Catholic Sacramental Imagination, is forthcoming from Lexington Books.

One response to “DT Podcast Episode 37 – Katherine Schmidt

  1. What a GREAT podcast! I loved this episode SO MUCH. I was reminded of sitting next to Katherine at a meeting in December, and thinking of how I have had the chance to know her via social media. Which is how I know all of you – TBTG.

    So well done, as usual, the podcast draws to a close and I feel so edified and so grateful.

    Plus – FUNNY, you guys are funny.
