DEEP DIVE - On this episode we talk about the most holy of holies and the headquarters of the Catholic Church, The Vatican. Existing uniquely as a state, a corporation and a person, The Vatican and The Holy See has been surrounded in mystery from the outside world for hundreds of years. We wonder what goes on inside its walls and discuss the known inner workings of Vatican City. We also talk about the Swiss Guard and their killer skill and how difficult it is to get into The Vatican as a citizen. We discuss the Vatican Bank and the weird classifications it has for lending money. We also examine the origins of The Vatican and how it popped into existence in a feudal Italy and how it had links to and was influenced by the Italian Mafia and The Jesuits. And of course we talk about the scandals that surround the Catholic Church and the reactions of the various Popes. So join us for this and loads more on our Christmas episode of TCG and have a great holiday! See you soon for episode 1 of Season 5! ________________________This podcast is supported by the generous donations of the wonderful folks over at Patreon.
