Podcast: Humanae Vitae in the Era of Protest

“Have you ever wondered how things changed so quickly in our Catholic story in America? How did we go from strong, internal subcultures to a drastic vocational crisis and a liturgy radically sanitized? How did the ‘cafeteria Catholicism’ happen in the first place? And seriously, what is the deal with Catholics and Humanae Vitae?”

Among other experts, I am interviewed by Jules Miles about the context and impact of Humanae Vitae. Learn about suburban Catholicism of the twentieth century, the impact of liturgical changes, and (this is my part) the eugenic history behind contraception.
