Of Mice and Men – (The Book) VERSUS Of Mice and Men – (The 1992 Movie)



The American Dream is by far the most wonderful and enlightening ideal of our world. An idea born from nothing more than a dedication to ourselves, it is one that has more incarnations than almost any in our world. The idea that one person can be born from nothing and make something meaningful and important of himself is one that is so universally enriching that it is beyond reproach. And while many authors have tackled the American Dream on the American Farm in literature, no one is a match for John Steinbeck’s classic tales. In particular, the tale of “Of Mice and Men” shows the allure of the American Dream. And in terms of adaptation, we at the Versus Machine Podcast find that the 1992 Gary Sinise and John Malkovich version of this classic tale is by far the best to run through our machine.

The Other Catholics – a Visit with Julie Byrne



Julie Byrne, author of The Other Catholics: Remaking America’s Largest Religion, situates independent Catholicism within the sprawling landscape of American religion and her own history.  Raised by Catholic academics that challenged Roman Catholic dogma in their life and teachings, Dr. Byrne carries the torch illuminating the edges of her childhood religion and discovering “Other Catholics” changing American Catholicism one Sacrament at a time.  Bishop Francis and Jessica find their own experience reflected in Dr. Byrne’s story and new reasons to celebrate Catholicism in all its diversity.

She attended Marquette University and there the Jesuits helped ground her faith in reason and social justice. Jessica received her Masters of Divinity at an ecumenical seminary, Eden Theological Seminary in St. Louis, where she was exposed to the wider world of Christianity. After Seminary she served the community of Sts. Clare & Francis as their Associate Pastor for seven years. Lately, Jessica has pulled back from her busy life in the parish to parent and dive deeper into her soul through projects like writing, gardening, cooking, and podcasting.
