Last night was the first Republican Primary Debate. Gus talks briefly about that and then asks listeners how important a role politics plays in their lives and invites them to call in and elaborate.
Also, Mark Brumley, president and CEO of Ignatius Press, calls in to talk about a brand-new book they've put out that contain the last writings of Pope Benedict XVI, entitled "What is Christianity? The Last Writings." The late pontiff, who resigned the papacy in 2013, reflects on how complex and complicated we've made our world, but that doesn't diminish the message of the Gospel or make it hard to understand.
