From EWTN's write-up of the show (with speaker bios):

Prefigured in the Old Testament and fulfilled in the New, the biblical story of the Mass spans the breadth of Scripture and beyond. What Jesus began on Calvary culminated in everlasting glory in the heavenly sanctuary, and is made present on earth every time the Church celebrates the Sacrifice of the Mass. Join Father Wade Menezes and EWTN Theology Advisor Tom Nash as they explore The Biblical Story of the Mass.

Teaser below, but get the whole series at EWTN.

Series Name:The Biblical Story of the Mass Tom Nash, Fr. Wade Menezes
Host:Tom Nash, Fr. Wade Menezes
Date Produced:7/28/2011
Description:The biblical story of the Mass didn’t begin at the Last Supper and Good Friday, nor did it end there. Sacrifices from Abel and Abraham to Melchizedek and Moses set the stage for Jesus Christ, “the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.” The Mass sacramentally re-presents or makes present again Christ’s one Sacrifice of Calvary, which began on the Cross and culminated in everlasting glory in the heavenly sanctuary.

Can't say I'm a huge fan of the recording (Ray Clare's style simply isn't mine), but this is what my book club is reading this month.  Feel free to join us and give it a listen.  You can download in different formats and chapter-by-chapter at the source, Librivox.

The Napoleon of Notting Hill

by G. K. Chesterton (1874-1936)
While the novel is humorous (one instance has the King sitting on top of an omnibus and speaking to it as to a horse: “Forward, my beauty, my Arab,” he said, patting the omnibus encouragingly, “fleetest of all thy bounding tribe”), it is also an adventure story: Chesterton is not afraid to let blood be drawn in his battles, fought with sword and halberd in the London streets, and Wayne thinks up a few ingenious strategies; and, finally, the novel is philosophical, considering the value of one man’s actions and the virtue of respect for one’s enemies.

    God and Modern Physics Podcast by Fr. Robert Spitzer S.J. Ph.d.  Afraid that's all I can tell you about it, except that the link was provided by long-time friend of the show, Filipino Catholic.  Much thanks.
