On this episode of the First Things Podcast:
Matthew Walther, associate editor of the Washington Free Beacon, drops by the First Things offices with a bottle of Louis Roederer non-vintage champagne. He talks with Matthew Schmitz and Julia Yost about his plan for champagne socialism, outlined in a recent review for First Things—and why fake champagnes, like Barefoot Bubbly, are very, very bad.
Then, Schmitz and Julia discuss The Power of Silence: Against the Dictatorship of Noise, the new book by Robert Cardinal Sarah. Find out why The Power of Silence is impressing people, including the pope emeritus.
