HDYGH Episode 10 Show Notes

In today’s episode, I sit down with one of my good friends, Ryan Ayala. Ryan and I used to work together at Saint Mary’s Catholic High School in Phoenix, where he is the school’s campus minister. I ask him, “How Did You Get Here?”

That’s not Diego standing next to me. That’s this week’s guest, Ryan Ayala!

Zélie is a lovely name for a daughter (or a mother).

Zélie Martin 1
The mother of St. Thérèse of Lisieux, Marie-Azélie “Zélie” Guérin Martin

Shows I Mentioned (Don’t Judge)

  • The Tiger King – Watching this is like watching a car accident on the freeway, but the freeway is a circus-themed gay rodeo with big cats and meth-heads and the highway patrol work has been outsourced to disgruntled Wal-Mart employees who are missing any number of teeth and/or limbs.
  • McMillions – An incredibly compelling documentary series about the McDonald’s Monopoly scandal. Who knew McDonald’s was so bingeable? (<—a joke?)

Visual Confirmation that I Talk too Much

“Talking to Rob is a lot like listening…” — Cory W.

Unsolicited Domestic Advice

Always assume your spouse has had a worse day than you did.

Pius XI. Imagine being as cool as Ryan, who was reading something this guy wrote “just the other day.” Millennials, amirite?

Pope Meme: Hit or Miss?

  • Pat Metheny “Two Folk Songs” – My college roommates (and Pat Metheny) persuaded me of this song’s excellence.
