How (and how not) to be Happy w/ J. Budziszewski

May 13, 2022

From Nihilist back to Catholicism.

In this episode, I talk with Dr. J. Budziszewski, professor of government and philosophy at the University of Texas at Austin. He tells us about his conversion from being a self-proclaimed Nihilist back to Catholicism, and what led him there and back. We talk about all kinds of things including moral ethics and how to be happy… as well as how to NOT be happy. Join us!
