Catholic Roundup Episode Number 50??? What’s a number anyway?


Intro Music

Catholic Roundup Rebranding

  • Why Rebrand?  A Catholic Canadian –> Catholic New Media Roundup –> Catholic Roundup

  • Episode Renumbering  (About 29 podcast episodes in last year’s 40 Days of Catholic Media)+  20 original posts for Catholic New Media Roundup.    That would make this episode of Catholic Roundup Show #50.

  • Why renumber– To show continuity in what we’ve been doing here for the past 18 months.  I counted all multimedia audio and video I personally produced since I started A Catholic Canadian.  I did not count guest contributions for the advent calendar. That would be ballot stuffing.  Basically show numbers don’t mean much but they do represent time, commitment, and I find them highly motivating.
