CRUSADE Channel Listener Endorsements
The Veritas Radio provides my daily dose of the truth, perhaps sometimes more than I want to hear, but never more than I need to hear.
The Mike Church Show: It's Like Catechism Without The Labor!
One of the finest and most informative 45 minutes I have spent - period. Where can you go and get access to that much intellect, humor, and catechism except your show. Anthony Esolen is a blessing for all of us. I cannot imagine having someone like him as a professor. I only spent $.23 today to sit in on his class. God bless you Mike.

It's Great To Restore The Order With The Mike Church Show

The CRUSADE Channel Community & Programming Changed My Life
I wanted to provide a testimonial on my experience with the Veritas Radio Network.
Like many of your listeners, I was once a fire breathing “conservative”-watching Fox news, listening to the talk radio mafia, voting Republican etc. I was an ardent member of the outrage brigade, anxiously awaiting Fox & Friends, Rush, Beck or O’Reilly to push my buttons, either sending me in to a fit of rage or, conversely, causing me to break in to a gleeful USA, USA chant. This also entailed being a rabid cheerleader for any and all foreign interventions perpetrated by our august rulers in Mordor. As a good statist, election nights and the launching of some new military conquest were like Christmas for me. I sat transfixed by the images on TV, beaming with fake patriotic pride; dutifully investing my time, emotions and votes like a good, unthinking servant of the state.
At some point, I did the unthinkable, I started to question how conservatives could reconcile claims to be for small government whilst also advocating a massive defense/intelligence apparatus, massive entitlement programs and rampant cronyism. I recognized the hypocrisy of detesting the federal leviathan for all its intrusions in to my life while having no compunction about unleashing this same government on every person inhabiting the planet. I also started to wonder if the talk radio mafia and Republican Party actually believed in anything they espoused or had they become co-opted appendages of the Deep State- enriching and empowering themselves through perpetuation of the problems they claimed to lament.
Fortuitously, I happened upon your program on Sirius XM one morning in 2013. It was the first time I heard a talk show host actually drill in to the real stories of the American Revolution, the Civil War etc and look at them with a much more critical eye. It was the first time I heard anyone speak of secession, an out of scale nation state and question the right/left, red/blue, liberal/conservative paradigm. Like all of us who had suffered decades of indoctrination in the American exceptionalism mantra, I was a bit shell shocked, initially-but I was intrigued and began to tune in daily for another dose of the red pill.
As a lukewarm Catholic, I was a little reticent when the discussion turned to faith. Like many Catholics, I strayed from my faith when I reached adulthood and was spiritually adrift for some time. I was easy prey for the American zeitgeist; eschewing religion for the much easier path of hedonism. I substituted the State for God, the Republican party for The Church and “conservative” commentators/politicians for the clergy.
As you tied together the historical and spiritual it became clear to me that the problems of this nation are not merely a recent by-product of modernism, they were baked in at the sacrosanct Constitutional Convention. The societal problems manifested today are symptomatic of an enlightened culture that has denied the spiritual, the soul and Christianity; replacing God with a faith in man, scientism and the material. I read Liberty, The God that Failed and the rest of the dots were connected. I began to look at history in a whole new light and question everything I had ever been taught.
Once I removed the matrix cable my mind and soul were liberated. My obsession with politics waned while I began to warm to the Catholic message more and more. I followed you to the Veritas Network and jettisoned Sirius XM in 2015. I can honestly say that your station has changed my life and motivated me to strive to be a better person.
I now have a much less sanguine, non-jingoistic perspective on the history of this country, and am able to see through the propaganda and misinformation with which we are incessantly bombarded. Most importantly, the VRN has helped me to resuscitate my moribund Catholic faith. I have been inspired by your example and that of so many fellow listeners and guests. Seeing and hearing so many people openly discuss their Catholic faith is inspirational, and compelled me to confront my failure to understand and appreciate my faith.
As my Catholic faith grew stronger I desired more knowledge and prayer. I purchased a Daily Roman Missal, began reading the daily scriptures, praying the rosary, going to daily mass whenever possible, keeping the Sabbath and have even attended Tridentine services.
I want to thank you for helping me recognize the beautiful gift I had been given in my Catholic faith. I am ashamed to say that I took it for granted for so many years.
VRN has grown in to a wonderful, close-knit community where members can share ideas, information and humor; inspiring one another to be better people, spouses, parents, friends and Christians. This is much more than a radio station or show. I am eternally grateful to you for your dedication and commitment to this effort; for proudly professing your faith; and helping all of us in this community to become more devout.
Blessings to you, your family and all those at VRN. The work you do is greatly appreciated, and is life altering.
The sound and programming are the best in the business. Definitely worth every penny of my Founders Pass between the programming and content app. Package deal all the way around all hosts are genuine and entertaining.
Veritas Radio Watched Over By Our Lady
Hey King Dude just had a wonderful lady from Argentina stop into my wife's shop and bring the following picture by. I was awed by the work she put in by hand. This picture I'm told represents The Lady of Hope in Catholicism and I believe it was worth sending as a message saying "thanks for being one guy who takes to radio each day with a message that presents hope for us all." - Bryce Englin, Founder's Pass Member.
