Fordham University’s Jesuit community aired the first in its 28-part Jesuits in Conversation series in November 2010, with a video interview of the late Charles Beirne, S.J.
Jesuits in Conversation introduces the Jesuits working at Fordham to the larger University community and the public. The interviews include Jesuit priests at Fordham, Jesuit visiting scholars, and young Jesuits-in-training (called scholastics). Joseph Koterski, S.J., and Father Lombardi coordinated the production with Matt Schottenfeld of Fordham’s television studio in the Walsh Family Library. Tim Valentine, S.J., wrote the original theme music.
