On a Quest for a Star

Just as the star of Bethlehem emerged within the foreign culture of the three magi, and invited them to start an adventurous journey to the newborn Savior, the programs of SQPN tap into popular culture to invite people on a journey of discovery towards an encounter with Christ.

SQPN (Star Quest Production Network) is a multimedia organization specializing in the production of audio and video programs faithful to the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. Its mission is to respond to the Church’s call to use the media for religious information, for evangelization and catechesis and for formation and education.

These audio and video productions are made in different languages and are aimed at an international audience. They focus on building bridges between the dominant popular culture of the Western world and the religious culture and tradition of the Catholic Church in order to reach an audience that has little or no relationship with that Church.

SQPN was incorporated as a non-profit organization in the state of Georgia, USA in 2005. (from: https://www.sqpn.com/)

Little treat for you all:
This was a pleasant surprise in my mailbox today! Thank you SQPN for producing interesting content!
How can I thank Jeff?
Are you guys watching Jack Ryan on Amazon Prime? I was enjoying it until episode 7 and what I consider to be a huge plot hole. To use one of Jimmy Akins lines they chose cheap writing to extend the plot rather than working through a more plausible story line. I’m still angry about it! No spoilers as I haven’t watched episode 8 yet! 😎
Are there any thoughts of having an anime based podcast? Or if you know of any good podcasts that talk about that. If not, maybe I will start my own. Haha. I love Jimmy's new podcast. Jimmy is one of my favorite podcaster, apologist, etc. Secrets of Doctor Who is great!
How soon until you guys do a Lost in Space episode? I have definite opions about the story arc for Dr Smith.
