Catholic in a Smalltown Podcast (general)
A podcast about a young, Catholic couple raising kids in a small town. Faith. Family. Fun...Scandalous.

Kat is working a lot, so Mac and the boys are hitting the pool. We review Man of Steel and World War Z, we remind everyone  to check out the USCCB website and wonder if Jesus ever got really frustrated with the disciples.
