Phyllis Schlafly and Mrs. America (May 2)

Even in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic, the culture wars in the country continue. The late, great Phyllis Schlafly is being portrayed as an enemy of women and social progess in a new series on Hulu. And even as parents are homeschooling their children, Harvard University is calling for and to all teaching at home. This week on Register Radio we look at the latest controversies with Register correspondent Lauretta Brown and Register editor Alyssa Murphy.

Coronavirus, Catholic Schools (Aug. 1)

The COVID-19 pandemic has re-emerged as a major health crisis in the United States and around the world. How is the Church responding, and what can be done to keep parishioners safe as they worship? We talk with Dr. Timothy Flanigan, a Catholic deacon and infectious disease specialist at Brown University. Also, we’ve had a lot of news this week on Catholic schools, including an important op-ed by several important Church leaders reminding us that Catholic schools are worth saving. We talk with Register contributor Andrea Picciotti-Bayer.
