Restoration Radio, one year on

One year ago yesterday Charles Coulombe joined Nicholas Wansbutter, Piers Hugill, and me as Restoration Radio had its first broadcast.  Our goal was simple: have conversations with laymen and clergy about the Catholic Faith and the ecosystem around it (our daily lives).  We wanted to make the shows available to a large audience, for free (including on iTunes, where you can download it into your "Podcasts" app), to not just reach "the choir," but Novus Ordo Catholics and non-Catholics as well (That being said, we do pay stipends to our guests in recognition of their time and if you feel like our shows add value to your life, please click the "donate" button on the right side of the page).

Two days ago Charles Coulombe was a guest for a show on the Papal Zoauves.  The difference, a year on, was that we had done almost 30 shows across many different themes.  We were the first Traditional Catholic radio show on Benedict XVI's abdication, and we were among the very first to comment on the new claimant, Francis.  We've also had some great discussions on the Second Vatican Council, homeschooling, and even the movie For Greater Glory, among many other things.

Restoration Radio currently has four different shows:

Clerical Conversations on the Crisis, featuring Bishop Donald Sanborn and Father Anthony Cekada.  This monthly show looks to discuss various topics relating to the period in the Church after the Second Vatican Council.

Catholic History with Charles Coulombe.  This biweekly show will be focused on history in general and the Catholic viewpoint on various parts of history in particular.

The Beautiful Things with host Magdalene Zapp.  This monthly show will look at art and its relation to our senses, intellect, and faith.

Restoration Radio, our flagship, running at least monthly, featuring an array of different guests, and helmed by different members of the founding group.

We have more shows in pre-production and hope to be a larger part of our audience's time devoted to learning and leisure.  To get the latest scoop on what's happening next with us, make sure that you follow our social media channels on the right hand side of this page.
