Here’s today’s dispatch from the crossroads of faith and media:

Currents News, a Catholic news program which airs on NET TV in New York City and for which I book guests, recently featured Craig Antico on the program. As the founder and chief operating officer of RIP Medical Debt (ripmedicaldebt.org)and co-author the book End Medical Debt, he makes some great points here about an issue that usually flies under the radar. Enjoy the interview and, particularly if you or a loved one are currently dealing with the issue, I’d recommend the book.

BTW, as proud as I am that Currents News dealt with the topic, John Oliver beat us to it on HBO.

Encourage one another and build one another up – 1 Thessalonians 5:11
