About the Podcast


A podcast about the wisdom of faith traditions in leading a good life – for the religious and non-religious alike.  Producer and host Kat Banakis talks to topical experts, every day people, and religious leaders about the questions that matter.

Seed funding for the Holy Holy Podcast was provided by the Louisville Institute, supporting those who lead and study American religious institutions.  



Rev. Kat Banakis is an Episcopal Priest in the diocese of Chicago. She is the author of Bubble Girl: An Irreverent Journey of Faith.   Her work has appeared in The Washington Post and many collections of religious and spiritual writing, including Split Ticket: Independent Faith in a Time of Partisan Politics.  She holds a Master's of Divinity and a Bachelor of Arts in Religious Studies from Yale.

YOU can invest in the Holy Holy Podcast through Patreon.  It's similar to Kick Starter and other crowd funding options except you support on a per-episode basis (full episode, not including Holier Bits).  There are special rewards for patrons of different levels, plus you get our undying love.

Just think, you'd be supporting important, intergenerational conversations like this!
