Over the last few months I have seen a lot of chatter on Twitter about socialism and Catholicism. Can this economic system be a viable option for a Catholic? Is it compatible with church teaching? In March I had the honor of interviewing two great people on the subject. I asked the question, can a catholic be a socialist?

It was engaging, lot of fun, and I learned quite a bit. Sam is an accomplished author, musician, and a professor at the University of British Columbia. Enjoy!
