Jesuitical is a podcast from America Media hosted by three young, hip and lay editors: Ashley McKinless, Olga Segura and Zac Davis.

Each episode brings some of the top (and maybe more obscure) Catholic news of the week, and an interview with a guest who offers a unique perspective on world events, culture or faith. At the end of the show, Zac, Ashley and Olga invite the listener into their faith lives by sharing their consolations and desolations from the week.

Is your bracket busted? Did you pick an upset, just the wrong one? Take a break from the madness of March and listen in as we talk with Paddy Gilger, S.J., about the top Jesuit moments in the NCAA tournament’s history, the good things sports can do for us and when they become a religion of their own. 

In our review of this week’s Catholic news, we look at where you can eat corned beef this St. Patrick’s Day Friday, mark Pope Francis’ four years as pope and return to last week’s debate about ouija boards (I get some vindication, here, I’m not proud to admit). 

And finally, in Consolations and Desolations we fess up to not being experts in Ignatian spirituality. But we believe that God loves us when we try, as do our Jesuit colleagues.
