I’ll admit it, I became a subscriber to Sirius XM when Howard Stern left terrestrial radio for satellite. One evening, though, on a long drive from Boston to Connecticut, I came across The Catholic Channel and listened to a program called The Busted Halo show, in which the host, Fr. Dave Dwyer, took calls from the audience who posed questions of faith. The host had a very relaxed and very humorous approach to answering all of the questions posed to him and I thought to myself, “There’s no way this guy is a priest.” I became a loyal listener, dare I say a fan, and made it a personal mission to meet the one and only Fr. Dave Dwyer, who had such an interesting backstory that, after coming up with the idea for Uncorking a Story, I asked him to be my first guest.
Fr. Dave Dwyer, CSP, is Executive Director of Busted Halo, a media ministry of the Paulist Fathers that helps Catholics share their faith joyfully. He’s also the award-winning host of The Busted Halo Show weeknights on SiriusXM radio. He is a popular speaker, mission preacher, and television commentator, having appeared on CNN, Fox News, EWTN, The History Channel, NBC, Entertainment Tonight, and The Daily Show . The Catholic Media Association bestowed on Father Dave its inaugural Gabriel Award for Personal Achievement in 2021. He has worked in campus ministry at the Universities of Colorado and Texas, and has developed ministry programs for the Military Archdiocese. Prior to ordination, he directed television for MTV and Comedy Central. He recently joined me on Uncorking a Story to discuss his latest book, Mass Class: Your Questions Answered.
- The origin story of his book, Mass Class: Your Questions Answered.
- How answering questions posed to him by college students as a young seminarian inspired Fr. Dave to embrace answering questions of faith.
- What Fr. Dave does when someone stumps him with a question.
- Why writing the book was not the fun part of the publishing process.
- How the book is not just a resource for Catholics, but anyone interested in learning more about the Catholic faith.
