Media Review: LibriVox

From Microsoft OfficeI love to read. Or at least I used to, before I started my job, as it pretty well taps me out and I haven’t enjoyed reading a good book in a while. This does not mean however that I do not enjoy good books anymore. Enter: Librivox. Founded in 2005, LibriVox is an online library of free audio books. How is it possible? Volunteers read books that are in the public domain then submit the recordings back to LibriVox and LibriVox makes them available either through direct download on the website or through iTunes. Currently, LibriVox has 4560 books in its domain. Read the rest of this entry »

Weekly Media: CU Podcast

Have a media that you love to use? I would be glad to review it and provide a post on it with you and your website attributed to it. Just send me an email through the Feedback! Page or post in the comments.

CU Podcast Avatar

I listen to a lot of different podcasts while at work and one of my favorites is Catholic Underground (CU), “Your guide to the digital continent”. The CU podcast is a round table discussion on news, media and technology through the lens of Catholicism. The round table is made up of priests and lay people—it is quite entertaining.

I attribute my motivation and desire to learn more about faith to these men. As a new convert to the faith, I didn’t realize the depth and breadth of the Catholic faith and these men discussing hot topics in the news and how Catholics should be responding to such events helped me to realize that there is so much more to being a Catholic than attending mass once a week. Somehow they are able to take pressing news and work in a discussion on pro-life, natural family planning, the papacy, etc., and be lighthearted and entertaining at the same time.

I listen to CU through iTunes. Click here to download iTunes for free. Once it is downloaded, click on the iTunes store inside the program and search for Catholic Underground. For those of you who do not use iTunes, you can listen directly from their site here.
