⁣Fr. Kevin Kolker, the youngest of four siblings, including The BeatiDude's very own Paul Kolker, serves as the Parochial Vicar at Christ the King Catholic Church in Dallas, Texas. This episode covers the arch of Fr. Kevin’s life journey to the priesthood.

Fr. Kevin grew up in Coppell, Texas, and attended St. Ann Catholic Parish. He went to school at St. Luke in Irving before entering high school at Jesuit Dallas, where he learned about being a man for others and doing all things for the great glory of God. He attended Texas A&M University, where he received degrees in both Mathematics and Philosophy before a short stint in corporate America.

Despite his efforts to run from the Lord’s call, Fr. Kevin came to understand that God wanted him to be a diocesan priest. He then completed his philosophy studies at Holy Trinity Seminary in Dallas before going to Notre Dame Seminary in New Orleans to study theology from 2018-2023. Fr. Kevin was ordained a priest on May 20th, 2023, alongside 7 other men in the Diocese of Dallas.

On Blessed are the Joke Makers, the Dudes must take on the persona of a Vindictive Ex to address the prompt, “The youth minister has a tattoo of _____.”

The TBD Question of the day is “Take us back to a song that made you love sick as you were growing up.”

⁣After interviewing others on Catholic radio for decades, Dave Palmer, General Manager for the Guadalupe Radio Network in North Texas, joins The BeatiDudes as a special guest for one of the funniest episodes across all three seasons.

Early in his career, Dave was inspired by late-night host David Letterman's path and decided to be a weatherman, hoping to break into comedy. Yes, you read that correctly. Throughout his career, Dave has also served as a theology teacher, a morning DJ on a local hit radio station, and an online expert on St Thomas Aquinas’s Summa Theologica.

This show covers a little bit of everything, including trust in the Lord, marriage, humor, and the call to holiness in workplace vocations.

On Blessed are the Joke Makers, the Dudes must take on the persona of someone from the past or from the future to address the prompt, “What should I give up for Lent?”

The TBD question of the day: complete this sentence… State your name, and then say what you hate.

On Reverse Simpsons, we hand the show over to Dave Palmer to serve as the host.

This is the longest episode in history…. actually, this is two different recording sessions spliced together to form a finale worthy of serving as the exclamation mark to Season Two.

First, The BeatiDudes reflect on Season Two and their first trip around the sun together.

Then, each Dude takes turns surprising the others with a series of TBD Questions for all to answer.

TBD Question #1: What is something from your life or a moment that you wish you could change or do-over?

TBD Question #2 – What is something you are proud of in your life that you caused to happen?

TBD Question #3: What is one thing your wife would like us to change about The BeatiDudes podcast?

After TBD, The BeatiDudes surprise call music legend Dave Moore for a quick check-in and a dive into the thought process behind Dave’s masterpiece 80s rock anthem about The BeatiDudes.

Then the Dudes enter a super special bonus edition of Blessed are the Joke Makers, with each Dude getting their own prompt and five different characters to play.

As the show gets ready to wrap up, Superfan “Christopher in the Comments” surprises the Dudes by knocking on the door and joining the show. He shares his reflection on Season Two and provides the final point totals.

The show ends with Christopher joining in for a round of Blessed are the Joke Makers, in which they must all assume the persona of the Angriest Road-Rager to address the prompt, “You know you’re Catholic when you love talking about _____.”

⁣The Shroud of Turin is the most studied archeological object in human history, and Fr. Andrew Dalton joins the BeatiDudes for a journey into Shroud science that will move you regardless of where you are in your own faith walk.

What the Gospels do not record, Shroud science does. But what does it reveal about the physical sufferings of the man? Are signs of Resurrection traced on the Shroud? How was this enigmatic image, which acts as a photonegative and encodes three-dimensional information, formed in the first place? Do these linen fibers contain the blood that was shed for our salvation?

Fr. Andrew Dalton is a Catholic priest of the Legionaries of Christ and professor of theology at the Pontifical Athenaeum Regina Apostolorum in Rome. He teaches the Synoptic Gospels and Biblical Greek and Hebrew.

Fr. Dalton obtained a Postgraduate Certificate in Shroud Studies in 2011 and became a board member of Othonia, an international center of investigation on the Shroud, in 2017.

In 2018, he worked with Shroud experts worldwide to bring university-level studies to the English-speaking world. He also teaches the Biblical Theology of the Passion of the Christ for the Science and Faith Institute, which collaborates with the International Centre of Shroud Studies in Turin and the Giulio Ricci Diocesan Centre of Shroud Studies in Rome.

When Rudy Vallee adapted it into some sketches for his radio program, and this was followed in 1938 by a 39-week run of a sketch comedy series on The Kate Smith Hour with Stone continuing in the role of Henry. Smith's director, Bob Welsh, is credited with the creation of the "Hen-reeeeeeeeeeeee! Hen-ree Al-drich!" opening, which eventually became one of the most famous signature sounds in radio.(Wikipedia)

The BeatiDudes
24 Views · 4 months ago

⁣Rob Hays, CEO of Ashford Hospitality, is a finance and business leader with two decades of experience in strategy and corporate finance. He is passionate about finding innovative ways to solve problems, particularly for businesses and industries that are trying to build a better society and have a focus on human flourishing.

In addition to his business skills and accomplishments, Rob enjoys intellectual & moral formation, the integration of faith in professional life, helping those who struggle with issues of homelessness, and striving to live as a faithful Catholic husband, father, friend, and mentor.

Rob shares his reflection on how difficult it was to navigate the 2020 shutdowns while running a hospitality company that needed to furlough roughly 90% of its workforce. Around that same time, Rob was asked if he would move into the CEO role, which he gladly accepted after a powerful conversation with his dad.

When reflecting on how he managed the stress of the situation, Rob was grateful that he had formed the habits of daily prayer, Rosaries, and mass before facing the storm. He found that he could not make it through the day if not for those spiritual habits.

On Blessed are the Joke Makers, the Dudes must take on the persona of an incompetent doctor to address the prompt, “a Catholic’s secret guilty pleasure.”

Heading in the break, Rob is put on the spot and sings an incredible rendition of “I Want It That Way” by the Backstreet Boys.

Next, Rob goes on to detail life as the CEO of “meme stock” and the rollercoaster that ensured. Next the Dudes and Rob answer the BeatiDudes (TBD) question of the day, “What is something you want more of in your life?”

The show finishes with a Reverse Simpsons game of Secret Santa that is full of great surprises.

On December 12, 1937, West appeared in two separate sketches on ventriloquist Edgar Bergen's radio show The Chase and Sanborn Hour. By the second half of the 1930s, West's popularity was affected by her dialogue being severely censored. She went on the show eager to promote Every Day's a Holiday. Appearing as herself, West flirted with Charlie McCarthy, Bergen's dummy, using her usual brand of wit. West was on the verge of being banned from radio.

More outrageous still was this sketch written by Arch Oboler, starring Don Ameche and West as Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden.


⁣Praised as one of broadcasting's top talents, he is regarded today as a key innovator of radio drama. Oboler's personality and ego were larger than life. Radio historian John Dunning wrote, "Few people were ambivalent when it came to Arch Oboler. He was one of those intense personalities who are liked and disliked with equal fire."

⁣Michael Hoffman is an exceptional motivational speaker and audience igniter, and his clients bring him back repeatedly to Ignite Performance and Ignite a Culture of Progress.

As President of Igniting Performance, Michael's extensive background in the people side of business, the psychology of team dynamics, and one-on-one interactions provide a unique platform for the skill sets of influence that EVERY person needs to be successful. Thousands of people have benefited from Michael's messages from his programs Secrets of the 1%er's and Mastering the Tornado Series.

Over the last decade, Michael’s talks have continued to include the same principles but have become more faith-forward.

When asked for speakers that inspired Michael’s career, he immediately went to Leo Buscaglia. Paul talked about Zig Ziglar and Jason Evert, and Nick mentioned Kevin Carroll’s talk on the red rubber ball.

On Blessed are the Joke Makers, the Dudes embody “the boss” to address the prompt, “I’m a bad Catholic because of…”

Michael reflects on his speaking career and his joy when sharing the stage with his daughter Ally.

On the TBD question of the day, Michael and Dudes each answer the question, “What app or resource do you use to assist in your spiritual journey?”

On Reverse Simpsons, the dudes must attempt new lyrics to The BeatiDudes theme song.
