Here is a link to a recent podcast I did with Doug Connolly of Catholic Phoenix in Phoenix, Arizona. It runs about 55 minutes and covers some issues I rarely talk about publicly. You might find it interesting.
Russ Breault on his Shroud Encounter Facebook page tells us:
We learn from Barrie Schwortz on the STERA Facebook page that (click on the image)…
So what we have on there is not something that some artist depicted,
so this is the real thing.
Take your choice: The complete PDF transcript of the show or a YouTube soundtrack of the June 22 broadcast (you can click on the play button below). It runs for 54 minutes.
Here is a sample from about the mid-point of the broadcast:
. . . Yeah they crucified him, speared him, scourged him; they did all these things to lots of people. But only one we know of had all of those things applied to him including this crown of thorns. I wanted to add one thing from the earlier segment. The wounds depicted on the shroud are 100% forensically accurate, and that was determined by no less than three forensic experts. So what we have on there is not something that some artist depicted, so this is the real thing.
The show’s description reads:
Barrie Schwortz, one of the original members of the team tasked with analyzing and authentication the Shroud Of Turin, joins Jim Paris Live. Discussed on this episode – what produced the image found on the ancient burial cloth? How do we know that it is not a fake? What evidence is there that the man wrapped in the burial cloth was tortured with a crown of thorns (as in the Gospel account)? Does the Shroud contain the DNA of Jesus Christ?
Barrie Schwortz reports on the STERA Facebook page:
I have been invited to appear on the Jim Paris Live radio program in the 2nd hour of the show, starting at 10:00pm E.T. on Sunday evening, June 22, 2014. The below link is to the online page where you can listen to the program live.

I look forward to hearing Barrie. If anyone spots an archive link for the audio, let me know.
Russ was featured last evening, Good Friday, April 18, 2014, on the Blog Radio show. You can hear it now.
Find the play button, sit back and relax and listen. What a great opportunity to hear the man of Shroud Encounter. The show ran for three hours and is now available in the show;s archives.
The promo, which I only saw this morning, tells us:
Mr. Breault uses a “CSI approach” as he takes audiences on a thought provoking adventure that extends through early church history, ancient art, modern science, and medical forensics to inform listeners about the proven characteristics of the Shroud as well as the “mystery” behind it.
Could the Shroud be the most important archaeological artifact ever found, or is it just a medieval fake? Does it provide clues to what happened during the crucifixion and resurrection, or is it just a pious art work created to represent these events? After thousands of hours of scientific analysis, the Shroud remains a profound mystery. After this episode, however, you will have a much clearer understanding why there still exists both mystery and controversy regarding this alleged burial cloth of Jesus.
This is a very special show that promises to have a significant impact on your beliefs and perception of this “controversial” artifact. Mr. Breault’s appearance tonight is most appropriate as Christians worldwide are marking today to remember the day of the crucifixion.
