Father Dave speaks with award-winning poet and best-selling author, Mary Karr. Her latest work is called Lit, the long-awaited sequel to her critically acclaimed and New York Times bestselling memoirs The Liars' Club and Cherry.

A born story teller, Mary Karr writes and speaks with the same joy and sorrow found in her poetry and prose. A sought-after speaker, Karr has given distinguished talks at prestigious universities, libraries, and writers' festivals, including Harvard, Oxford, Princeton, Brown, and my alma mater Syracuse University, where she spoke with Salmon Rushdie.

Her first memoir, The Liars Club, was recently named #4 on EW’s list of the top 100 books of the last 25 years. Her newest book, Lit has been hailed as “the memoir of the season” by Library Journal.

Father Dave talks with actor/producer/writer/director Emilio Estevez! You may remember him from his breakthrough roles in the classic '80's movies The Breakfast Club, St. Elmo's Fire, and The Outsiders or as his seminal character of Coach Gordon Bombay from the Mighty Ducks series. Behind the camera, Emilio has directed the movie Men At Work, which he also co-starred in with his brother Charlie Sheen, and also the bio epic Bobby, about the life of Robert F. Kennedy, which received an unprecedented 7-minute standing ovation when it premiered at the Venice Film Festival. Emilio is now putting the finishing touches on his newest project, The Way, about the religious pilgrimage the Santiago de Compostela, which is his fourth feature as writer/director, and also stars his father, Martin Sheen.

We get this question quite often, particularly by newer listeners. They hear the show announcer say, "Here's your host, Paulist Father Dave Dwyer" - and they freak out! They think he says, "Paula's father"! Rest not, Father Dave is not the father of anyone named Paula, but he is indeed a Paulist. In this clip, he explain to a listener exactly what it means to be in the Paulist order of priests. (Originally aired: 02/18/10.

Father Dave talks to a listener about two very interesting questions regarding confession. The first is about the concept of certain standardized amounts of penance for certain sins. The second question (one that we get a lot) delves into the very nature of the Catholic form of reconciliation: why do I need the priest at all? Why can't I just confess my sins to God? (Originally aired: 01/29/10.
