Talking “Cultural Catholics” on First Things (podcast)

Listen to my conversation with Mark Bauerlein on the First Things podcast to learn more about the substantial swath of Americans who think of themselves as “partially Catholic” in some way, though not religiously. I draw upon data from the Pew Research Center and my chapter in the 2018 Annual Review of the Sociology of Religion (entitled “Cultural Catholics in the United States“) to talk through this needed but underutilized conceptual category. Our conversation moves from this into other meaningful characteristics of today’s US Catholic landscape, including the role of parishes.
