Welcome to The Cardinal Newman Society Podcast with Kevin Murphy.

This podcast acquaints listeners with the beauty of a faithful Catholic education—what it is and what it is not; you’ll discover how to determine if a school or college is faithfully Catholic. Our content courageously confronts the “educational emergency” declared by Pope Benedict XVI by featuring the brightest minds from Newman Guide institutions and how they are renewing faithful Catholic education worldwide. These are the superheroes at work in the trenches daily fighting for the souls of our youth amidst today’s relativistic culture.
