Once again, I get to step outside the box and guest host on Relevant Radio’s A Closer Look from 6-7 pm ET today! My friend Sheila Liaugminas is in Rome all week, and I will fill in for her Monday through Friday this week. The Catholic talk-radio network is heard nationwide on the air after its merger with Immaculate Heart Radio, as well as online and through their free mobile app that plays live and podcasted shows.

Today’s guests include:

  • Is there a DACA deal in the works? Duane Patterson, producer extraordinaire for Hugh Hewitt, joins us to give us the latest in the quiet after the shutdown. We’ll also discuss the increased pressure to end the filibuster altogether, and what that might mean for representative democracy in the long run.
  • Elizabeth Scalia of Aleteia joins us to discuss the recent reflection of Pope Francis on “fake news,” the sudden and amusing interest in the meaning of the Immaculate Conception, the new “Divine Creatures” exhibit at the Vatican Museum, and more!

We will also take your calls at 1-888-914-9149You can also listen on the Relevant Radio app no matter where you are in the world, so download it now. I’ll look forward to talking with you!
