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.

Barrie writes on the STERA Facebook page:
Here’s a link to Part 2 of my appearance on Roy Schoeman’s radio program, Salvation is from the Jews:http://radiomaria.us/
Apparently, my comment in Part 1 when I referred to certainevidence as "anecdotal at best" upset some people, which is never my intent. However, I always feel obligated to answer as honestly as I can and recognize and accept that some people may strongly disagree with my personal conclusions. I came to accept the Shroud as authentic because of the scientific evidence alone. Some of it is published in credible journals and carries more weight than others. That is not to say that anecdotal evidence is any less important in the overall study of the Shroud. It just doesn’t meet the same scientific standards. It is nothing personal. That is just how it is.
When I am speaking publicly I am simply voicing my own personal opinions, based on 38 years of involvement and study of the Shroud. As a witness and direct participant in the events themselves, my perspective is undoubtedly different from most. Still, disagreement is normal in science and can often lead to great advancements in knowledge. So let’s just agree to disagree from time to time. After all, we ARE talking about the Shroud of Turin!
Previous Posting: Barrie Schwortz on Roy Schoeman’s Salvation is from the Jews Radio Show
Barrie writes on the STERA Facebook page:
Over the past few years a number of my Catholic friends have sent me a book by Roy Schoeman titled, “Salvation is from the Jews.” In my recent visit to Ave Maria University I had the privilege of meeting Roy for the first time, and we spen…t several hours together discussing our work and our faith. Afterwards, he asked if I would appear on his radio program (named the same as his book) and we have since recorded two shows, the first of which aired on March 22, 2014. You can listen to the first show at this link: http://radiomaria.us/salvationisfromthejews/?powerpress_pinw=147-podcast. I will include the link to the second program, which airs on March 29th, as soon as it becomes available online.
With host Rich Christian. Episode: Razor Swift: The Shroud of Turin W: Barry M Schwortz. Description of the 122 minute show:
The Shroud Of Turin has been an object of controversy for centuries. It’s been said that the shroud has been the single most studied artifact in human history. The believers say it’s the burial shroud of Jesus while the skeptics maintain that there’s nothing to the shroud, but just another religious hoax. Coming on the show will be Shroud Of Turin expert Barrie M. Schwortz to give us his analysis on the shroud.
Rhonda Brackett interviews Mark Antonacci (about 70 minutes) on August 15. From the shows site:
Mark Antonacci is an attorney who, for more than thirty years, has studied all aspects of the evidence and its relevance regarding the Shroud of Turin. He gave a keynote address at the international conference held in Frascati, Italy in conjunction with the Shroud’s last exhibition in 2010 in which he presented a series of scientific tests and experiments to be conducted on the Shroud and its samples. He is the founder and president of The Resurrection of the Shroud Foundation, a non-profit corporation that funds scientific research relating to the Shroud. He is the author of The Resurrection of the Shroud (New York: M. Evans and Co., 2000) and is writing another book on this subject.
This is an interesting podcast from an ex-Catholic, who states: “Despite the irreverent title, in this episode I do my best to take a fair and even affectionate look at the Shroud of Turin.” It runs about 38 minutes:
