With all the craziness in the news, manufacturing stress for everyone in every walk of light, I heard a suggestion for a way to mellow out a bit and thought I'd pass it along. I listen to a network of 168 U.S. Catholic radio stations called "Relevant Radio" - download the app if you aren't within listening distance of an affiliate station - and some of their programming is useful for putting your mind back into a quieter place. The programs I listen to are the Patrick Madrid Show (apologetics, history, general advice about life's problems), the Father Simon Says Show (if you are into linguistics he is full of historical analysis of Biblical translations), and St. Joseph's Workshop (with a priest who strikes me as Mr. Rogers in a Roman collar.) Patrick takes phone-in questions during his morning programming but shows are repeated in the evening or at night so there's always someone there with a calming approach, 24/7. Those particular Relevant Radio hosts are definitely not a tent revival crowd and are full of interesting historical information that takes my mind off other things. The picture below is the icon for their app to help you find it at your app store. Just an idea...think about turning off the ranting station you may listen to (especially if the ranting is corona virus hysteria or presidential politics) and give Relevant Radio a try.
