Fr. Seraphim Beshoner, a Third Order Franciscan with multiple podcasts, including Catholic: Under the Hood, has made mentioned the "importance" of beards on guys who podcast (as a bit of a sidenote). In fact, one one message board I frequent as a Disciples with Microphones member, Fr. Finelli (iPadre) and I both get mentioned in Fr. Seraphim's list of bearded podcasters.
It should be noted that all three of us on the Christus Vincit blogging team have some sort of facial hair. ;-)
