NCR senior correspondent 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."
In the final episode of Season 13, Heidi, Father Daniel and David talk about COP28, the U.N. climate change conference, discussing accountability; remarks (and challenges) from Pope Francis; a statement from the U.S. bishops; the importance of voices of faith; and other topics related to the summit.
Later, Heidi interviews Bishop John Stowe of Lexington, Kentucky, regarding the Israel-Hamas conflict, and the work of Pax Christi. Finally, the three hold a pop culture roundup to share what they've been reading, watching and listening to.
