About Episode:
In this episode, we interview Father Mike Schmitz. Father Mike is the director of youth and young adult ministry for the Diocese of Duluth, and chaplain for the Newman Center at the University of Minnesota Duluth. In this episode, we talk about modern manhood, manly virtue, the real meaning of “meekness,” how porn keeps us from serving God, the Catholic Church sexual abuse problem, his thoughts on Donald Trump, whether he would allow Joe Biden to take Communion, if it is a sin to have same-sex attraction, whether you can be Catholic AND support abortion, and a whole lot more! Let’s get into it…

Kyle Thompson feels that he was put on this earth by God to lead men to cultivate manly resilience. He launched Undaunted.Life in 2017 in order to deliver content that helps men cultivate spiritual, mental and physical toughness. In addition to influencing via social media and through his YouVersion devotionals, he is the host of the weekly Undaunted.Life: A Man’s Podcast show. When he isn’t spending time with his family or working, he can be found listening to podcasts, reading, lifting weights in his garage gym, or training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
