Dad joke in 3... 2... 1... He's GrumBACH!!! Fr. Tim is back with us for another series we decided to start strong as we talk about vocations. It's Fr. Tim, so I don't have to tell you it's good. This man is known for being all over the place. When he's not surfing or mountain biking, he is leading LIFE-TEEN camps, Trending on social media or on Catholic Radio (hour)... leading talks in conferences, on top of being associate pastor in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles! I forget the rest and he doesn't mind, because he's almost as humble as my made-up brother Ramon, who could not be here for this episode. Not suspicious at all.
I know you're not here to read, but full disclosure; this podcast was not supposed to be first. My ADD was just on full force as we recorded episode 1 without proper ventilation, so it would have been horrible to release that episode when this gold nugget was in the burner ready to light up any potential vocations to the priesthood.
You can see what Fr. Tim is up to on...

In this episode, Adrian and his brother who doesn't exist break the usual format and talk about the stuff about the things. Though the Engerish is hard, they manage to talk for longer than usual, so bear with our campfire and cigars as we have an open and largely unscripted conversation (believe it or not, we usually try to follow an outline) about the important things addressed earlier in the series.

This guy is blowing up in the Catholic scene for a reason. Today, Adrian sans his imaginary brother Ramon; has a conversation with a man who is everywhere in the youth ministry scene. He is a child of God, husband, father, speaker, rapper, merchant of Catholic swag, and up until recently, he also had a side-hustle as a full-time Catholic school teacher. You can find him at:
And if you have time and want to be awesome, give us a five star review. You already read all this, so I know you have the time. And if you did already, thank you.
This episode has been one of the most difficult episodes to get out. It got postponed one week due to how difficult it was to edit. Not only did the ADD run strong with the two hosts who for some reason were allowed to record without proper adult supervision, but the audio was hard to work with. But we don't believe in quitting (other than sin) here at dude|CATHOLIC, so we punched the devil in the FACE! and have come to release this podcast full of laughter, joy, and hopefully its own contribution to the mission of making Catholicism fun again.

In today's episode, Adrian and special guest Gabe talk about music. From our parents music, to road trips, to music with those we influence, and we even give credit to some good worship artists. I like to think we threw minimal shade to Christian music as a whole.

God is not fair! & that's good. What would be of us if He were. Today we conclude our series on Divine Mercy with the episode titled "Better than I deserve." This is our answer of choice when asked how we're doing. More on the podcast, so get to listening...

Warning: At some point of the podcast we get into very heavy stuff your children may be too young to have explained to them. That being said, we talk about God's mercy being everlasting and available to us no matter how far away we get from him.

This week's podcast inaugurates (didn't even know I knew how to spell that) a new series; inspired by the last episode of the last series. I wasn't going to mention that this is our 100th episode, but it is. Because of this, the first 100 people to congratulate us via DM on our instagram account @dudeCATHOLIC will get absolutely nothing! But wait, there's more. If you act now, you will continue to get the dude|CATHOLIC podcast absolutely free of charge! But if you don't, you'll still get the podcast free of charge. I also want to let you know that we are both proud and disappointed in you for reading this pointless episode description.
In this episode, the dudes have a conversation in between series (next episode is episode 100 of the podcast). Many good things are happening: Adrian jumped ship to public school teaching, the dude|CATHOLIC podcast gets mentioned on a top 25 podcast you should be listening to list, we're on the Bear Woznick show. It's just too much not to celebrate with you. We also spend too much time talking about how Ramon is a beautiful man and how your goodness being recognized is no accident. Thanks for listening, please rate, review, like, subscribe, share, etc. or not; Ramon doesn't care.
It's hot in California - mind you, we have a 15 degree tolerance up or down from 75 degrees Fahrenheit. As a result, we recorded in the car studio with the AC on, hence the background noise. Therefore, you know we must have something good in store for you. We're talking about God's mercy and how it goes beyond what we deserve, beyond what we can ask for, beyond our comprehension. Yet there it is. So, here it is, enjoy.
