Our very special guest this evening on the Busted Halo Show is two-time Academy Award winning actor/director, Kevin Costner.  Even though he just turned 60, he hasn’t slowed down—as evidenced by the fact that he is starring in two movies opening the next couple of weeks.  He’s here today to talk about the first, a film he also produced, called Black or White.  It’s the story of a custody battle over a young bi-racial girl. Her parents are out of the picture, but her grandparents are played by Oscar winners Octavia Spencer from “The Help” and Kevin Costner.   That’s the movie “Black or White,”  and we’re honored to have its producer and star with us… welcome to the Busted Halo Show, Kevin Costner!

Should we have female altar servers? It may seem like an odd question to some, but it is very real and serious to some, as well. The question has been put back in the news recently when the archbishop of San Francisco upheld a decision by a local priest to not allow altar girls at his masses. What do you think? Listen to Father Dave's take here.

This is a particularly special podscast, if I do say so myself. Primarily because it contains so many different intriguing elements in it. Mainly, this podcast of the show consists of many incredible Faith-in-Culture requests, where people request songs or movies/shows from the pop culture that in some way reflects or inspires their faith lives. But then we also have a riveting conversation abouyt speeding, annnnnd Father Dave hints at a possible meeting with Pope Francis later this year. Have a listen!

Just this past May, Pope Francis asked: “Imagine if a Martian showed up, all big ears and big nose like a child’s drawing, and he asked to be baptized. How would you react?” Hmmm. Can’t say I had thought of that, Holy Father. But our guest has! Jesuit Brother Guy Consolmagno has been a lecturer at Harvard University and MIT; has served in the US Peace Corps teaching physics at the University of Nairobi; and was a physics professor at Lafayette College in Pennsylvania, before entering the Jesuits in 1989. An astronomer and curator at the Vatican Observatory for more than 20 years, Brother Guy was awarded the 2014 Carl Sagan Medal for outstanding communication by an active planetary scientist by the American Astronomical Society. With us in-studio now to talk about his new book Would You Baptize an Extraterrestrial? And Other Questions from the Astronomer’s Inbox at The Vatican Observatory, is Brother Guy Consolmagno!
