On January 15, 2013, I drove down to Fresno, California to record two television episodes (“The Church and Social Media” – Parts 1 and 2) for the diocesan owned television station, KNXT with Lisa Hendey, creator of CatholicMom.com.

We were on the show titled “Forum for a Better Understanding,” and we were interviewed by the host, Jim Grant.  In this first episode, Lisa and I did a quick run through of new media methods of communicating and how the Vatican is embracing the new media.

On her blog post over on Patheos, Lisa said:

This “Forum” program is typically a multi-faith conversation, which explains the huge Star of David behind Carson’s head. It was our goal with this and the companion program (which I’ll share tomorrow) to educate the average person in the pew about what’s happening in Catholic new media.

I truly enjoyed the opportunity, and Lisa’s hospitality was second to none!

Below, I have embedded Part 1 of 2.
