Will the Catholic sex abuse crisis ever end?

The 'Deliver Us' podcast investigates

NEW YORK — America Media and Spoke Studios present “Deliver Us,” a podcast about the sexual abuse crisis in the Catholic Church.

Will the Catholic Church's sex abuse crisis ever end? That's a question everyone has been asking since the wave of news in summer 2018. In “Deliver Us,” host Maggi Van Dorn is a Catholic committed to healing the church from the inside. She wants to know: How did this happen? And what, if anything, can we do to help? Hear from experts, advocates, and survivors to learn what the church can do to move forward. Because you can’t fix something until you know how it’s broken.

The season launched Wednesday, February 13, 2019 with new episodes premiering weekly. The most recent episode investigates two theories behind the sex abuse crisis: gay priests and celibacy.

In each episode, Maggi addresses a question about the sex abuse crisis. She talks to survivors, lay people and priests, and well as experts like psychologists and criminologists to explain the roots of the crisis, and where we go from here.
