Saint of the Day: St. Isidore the Farmer

I’ve got plenty of java and Chesterfield Kings

Have I mentioned lately that I’m on the radio? Okay, not quite Lester the Nightfly. I’m Mark Shea’s co-host on his show, Connecting the Dots, every Monday from 5-6:00 PM Eastern. You can listen live here, and if you’d like to call in, we’d love to chat! The number is 1-573-4BREAD4  or Tweet us @Breadboxmedia.

We talk about all manner of things, and if you listen hard enough, you can definitely hear someone barking (the three-year-old) or someone crying (the dog) on my end. One time, I even threw up on the air! But that was when I was pregnant, so you can’t count on that happening every week. 

You can also listen to podcasts of previous shows here.
