Two Guys a Girl and a Catholic Podcast Episode 47 – March Madness, Bracketology and Double Feedback!

Episode 47


Double Feedback this week!

  • Feedback from Facebook – Corinne Kelley
    • I am an emerging media and communications major at the University of Texas at Dallas and just want to say thanks for using the new media for the new eveangicalization!
  • Petra Balkema (friends with Sean McCarney) also commented on Austin Catholic New Media’s post.
    • Petra wrote: “Hi guys and girl! Been meaning to leave you feedback, but after a very sad ‘is anybody listening’ question I decided the moment has come; so yes, I am listening, since episode 4. Almost stopped after episode 7 (lordy, Americans really think they rule the world), but then decided that it’s interesting to hear different opinions. And still happily listening. Obviously not everything is completely interesting to me, not being from ‘the area’ (:)), but even that segment is interesting, because I get to hear what you are doing. Keep it up!”

    I listen to every episode, but I mute my speakers whenever Williston opens his mic!  It’s difficult to do, but well worth the effort!!  Chris at SXSW?

    • Jason Elizondo

      I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. You haven’t made it till you’ve been bashed on the interwebs. Congrats Chris and thanks for feedback Bracketz. 😐

        My comments were posted with much love for Chris and the rest of the 2GGCP crew. It was a St. Patty’s Day jest!  Chris rocks, but his fashion choices leave me wondering…
