Tactical Catholic’s review of the Catholic Podcast Directory

Url:  http://catholicpodcastdirectory.wordpress.com

I’ve looked, man.  I really have.  There isn’t an up-to-date directory of Catholic Podcasts.  Either the lists are 4 years old, or they list sites that only appeal to a particular niche, or they just accept any podcast whether it is Catholic or not.  There are even sites out there that list podcasts that don’t even exist.  Ugh!

The purpose of the Catholic Podcast Directory is to search the web and network with other bloggers and podcasters to find faithful Catholic podcasts that are current.  As the site grows, the indexing will also enable visitors to find exactly what they’re looking for. But guess what?  The site doesn’t have any listings yet.  That sucks.

Catholic Podcast Directory needs your submissions.   The rules are pretty simple.

  • Podcasts need to be up to date.  That means they are still publishing new content.
  • Podcasts need to be Catholic.  They can’t be schismatic or heresy (see the Catechism’s definition)
  • Podcasts need to have at least 5 episodes in the bank before we’ll list them.

For now, use our contact form to submit a podcast.  Use the comment field to list as many specifics as you can (iTunes link, feed(s) link, etc.)

Tactical Catholic Podcast Episode 024: Comic Books & the Church’s SECRET POWER

JP the Great Comic Book

Tonight on the Tactical Catholic Podcast, we’re talking all things Comic Books.  Did you know Marvel Comics published a comic book about St. John Paul II when he was Pope?  They did.  We will discuss comic books, comic book films, geek culture, …. nothing is off limits tonight.  PLUS, to be revealed in this episode, THE CHURCH’S SECRET POWER.  Why would you want to miss this?  Tune in tonight to Fiat Ministry Network at 9pm central time. http://www.fiatministrynetwork.tv/live

PS.  If anybody has this comic book, PLEASE OH PLEASE LET ME KNOW.

Website Review 003: Internet Movie Database

Tactical Catholic’s Review of Internet Movie Database

URL: http://www.imdb.com

You already know about imdb? Well of course you do. The internet movie database has been around for a while. What you may not have noticed is how IMDB has rolled with the times to adapt and improve its offerings. In fact, I would say this is one of the most fluid sites out there.

IMDB has a great responsive design that hugs whatever screen you choose to use. This morning, I loaded it on my lumia and it looks great. On my Surface it looks fantastic, and it even looks good on my old CRT Dell.

On IMDB you can find info on pretty much every legitimate movie ever made. Actors, directors, etc are cross referenced so you can see what other movies are out there or what other actors have done. Loads of photos, a plot summary, trailers, and reviews. My favorite feature, however, is the Parental Guide.

Parental Guide is a non-religious breakdown of a film’s contents. From here parents can check the levels of violence, language, sexual content, etc. Witbout spoiling the plot, I can usually determine if this film is worth my time or of it is chock full of bad stuff. You can also use this to check out a movie, show, or even VIDEO GAMES before your kid sees or hears something you don’t want them to see or hear.

Yes, I like the box office stats, and finding showtimes is handy, but I am telling you that the Parent Guide and reviews is my favorite.

Use IMDB and enjoy the movies again.
