EDITOR’S NOTE (Nick Stamatakis): Father John Peck, host of Ecclesioclasm podcast, recently asked Jim Jatras, George Michalopoulos of Monoakhos.com, and yours truly to participate in a 2-hour podcast regarding the troubles of GOA. Below, I let George Michalopulos introduce it and provide a link to the video of the first part of this enjoyable and informative exchange…
Ecclesioclasm Interview: What’s Wrong with the GOA? –Part I
Recently, Fr John Peck, the host of the Ecclesioclasm podcast, asked a rhetorical question; specifically, what was wrong with the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America?
Rather than rehash the latest scandal du jour, it seemed that a roundtable of prominent Greek-Americans would be better inclined to offer their insights into the problems which plague the GOA (and the Ecumenical Patriarchate) at present.
Two such men were James G Jatras and Nick Stamatakis, both of whose works you know. Surprisingly, Yours Truly was asked to participate as well. (Needless to say, I was extremely honored to be considered in their company.)
At any rate, when you get three Greeks together, there’s no way that you can get all that needs to be said in an hour. And so, Fr John, who hosted this interview, divided it up into two parts. No doubt, at the rate that things are going, there will probably be more such podcasts in the future!
In any event, we hope you enjoy “What’s Wrong with the GOA?, Part I.”
