A sincere congratulations goes out to Father Roderick Vonhogen, host of the Catholic Insider podcast and Best Mobile Podcast for 2006. Based on prior comments and e-mails, I’m sure some folks will begin down the “Wait a second, how can that be considered a mobile podcast?” path. For what it’s worth, I’m going to offer my two cents: it is what it is and Catholic Insider is definitely award-worthy, so I hope folks will NOT raise the question of a podcast’s category. Instead, why not drop a note to Father Roderick and congratulate him?
Personally, I find that the soundseeing tours presented are top-notch and take people to places they would never get to themselves. Regardless of religious beliefs, I can honestly say that this podcast affected me profoundly last year. Whether you are of Catholic faith or not, when the Pope passed away, you knew about it because of the world leader status held by the Pope. I will never forget that time; not because of the news, not because of the television, but because Father Roderick shared the immense feeling of grief and loss with one of the most simplest, yet moving podcasts I’ve ever heard. If you missed it, it’s only 2:01 long. Hop on over to the Catholic Insider page and give a listen to CI #24 if you want to see what I mean.
Thanks one last time for the great support you’ve shown MobileTechRoundup! As long as you keep listening, we’ll keep recording!
