Here in Australia, there’s a TV show called You Can’t Ask That. The premise of the show is to identify a group of people who are often misunderstood, and to allow the public to submit questions which one normally might not ask.
Recently, an episode was done on priests, and you can see it here: https://iview.abc.net.au/show/you-cant-ask-that/series/3/video/LE1717H008S00 See if you can work out which one is me. 🙂
(International readers, I’m afraid that it seems to be difficult to get access to from outside Australia; if you work out how to do it, please let me know in the comments!)
It was a fascinating experience; to be invited to reflect on the big-picture questions about who we are and what we do. To give you some idea, I was in the studio for three hours, and the material had to fit a half-hour episode; so a lot of what I thought was really valuable material hasn’t made the cut. But I think what is there is fair.
Do tell me what you think of it!
