The Patrick Coffin Show podcast features weekly interviews with A-list influencers and outliers in the effort to recover the Judeo-Christian roots of the culture. Patrick is the Canadian-born former host of Catholic Answers Live, and he has raving fans around the world. He injects these fascinating interviews with his own distinctive blend of depth and levity. If you’re tired of politically correct media speak, you want to see God back in the public square, and you’re not allergic to having a laugh, this is the place to be.

Michael J. Knowles

Michael J. Knowles is the Yale-bred host of two-thirds of The Daily Wire platform begun by Ben Shapiro. He “wrote” a clever “book” titled Reasons To Vote Democrat: A Comprehensive Guide 

 Media That’s Catholic But Not Catholic Media

. (Everyone reading this can list a dozen faux Catholics in media.) His show is much more politically geared than mine, but his infectious enthusiasm for slaying liberal arguments and his no-apologies support for President Trump couched in millennial-speak, and his frequent references to his unabashed Catholicism, make him very watchable as a host.

In this interview, you will learn:

  • How Knowles got the Daily Wire gig, and what his mission is
  • How he uses his Stella Adler Studio acting skills to communicate
  • His unsuccessful attempts at baptising Ben Shapiro in the office hallway
  • How his faith informs his political conservatism
  • The paradoxical similarities between President Trump and Pope Francis
  • Why the digital media provides a strong counterweight to the hugely biased MSM
  • My thoughts on marriage as he prepares to take the matrimonial plunge
