The Tradistae Podcast: Episode List

Tradistae is creating a political podcast for Catholics and all people of goodwill about issues that matter for the God-fearing working-class. Topics include Catholic Social Teaching, the Catholic Worker Movement, distributism, integralism, environmentalism, tradition, social justice, and more.

We are trying to put out a new, free episode every week, but we don’t yet have the support to make this a guarantee. If you’d like to help cover the hosting cost and editing time it takes to make this podcast (and access patron-only content), you can support us on
