NCR executive editor Heidi Schlumpf is part of the new season of "The Francis Effect" podcast, joining co-hosts Franciscan Fr. Daniel Horan (columnist for NCR) and David Dault, executive producer and host of "Things Not Seen: Conversations About Culture and Faith."
Heidi, Father Daniel and David discuss anti-Black-studies legislation in Florida, including Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis' efforts to stop Advanced Placement curriculum, and why this matters for Catholics nationwide.
They also examine parallels between anti-LGBTQIA+ policies at U.S. Catholic schools and dioceses, and the anti-LGBTQIA+ legislation in many state houses. The trio talk about the beginning of Lent, and its challenges amid polarization, pandemic and war.
