Membership Settings

In the upper right-hand side of the screen is the Members Control Panel menu. From there, you can view and edit your membership preferences, modify your subscription, upgrade, downgrade, change your password, track your payments and add or edit your credit card and contact info. *See our automatic billing policy at the bottom of this page.

There are three tiers of membership: Free Trial, Basic, and Premium. Each has its own special features. Here’s a breakdown of each subscription tier:

  • Free 1 Month Trial – Listen to an entire month of future episodes and an entire month of archives, no credit card necessary.
  • Basic – $10 per month, or $100 per year. Listen to the weekly program and an entire year of archived shows.
  • Premium – $15 per month or $120 per year. Listen to the entire archive of shows spanning nearly twenty years, as well as get access to the Veritas Lounge where you can watch all of John’s videos and listen to lecture and interview series. As well as get special Premium member downloads and discounts. Find out more here!

You can always upgrade your membership at any time, just visit the Members Control Panel and click the My Subscriptions link. Make your selections from the drop down boxes and click Apply Selection. If you want to downgrade, repeat the process, and the remaining credit will be applied toward any future billings.

Automatic Billing Policy

*Please Note: For your convenience, all subscriptions bill automatically at the end of  each subscription cycle. To stop automatic billing, go to My Subscriptions in the Members Control Panel and select No Recurring Billing. We will notify you via email of the changes to your subscription as well as before your subscription expiration. 

If you’ve selected No Recurring Billing, you will not be charged for a renewal and your subscription will simply expire. You will still have access to login and renew for up to 1 year after expiration without the need to resubscribe. To renew your subscription manually, just login and click the yellow Renew Subscription button in your Members Control Panel. If you have a promo or discount code and would like to extend your subscription at a discount, visit the My Subscriptions link in the Members Control Panel. Make any desired adjustments to your subscription using the drop down boxes, then enter the promo code and click Extend Subscription.


To cancel your subscription immediately, login and click My Subscriptions in the Members Control Panel. Click Cancel Subscription. Your billing will stop and your access to the shows will cease. However, we’ll keep your account profile with your login details and email available for one year in case you want to reactivate your subscription without the hassle of entering all that information.

If you do change your mind and want to renew within the one year reservation, simply log into your Members Control Panel and reactivate your membership in the My Subscriptions tab. Once the one year reservation has passed, you’ll need to sign-up again under the original Subscribe page if you want to listen. Please let us know the reason you’re cancelling so we can resolve any issues you may have encountered.

We hope you’ll continue to enjoy your subscription for years to come. As always we love hearing from you so feel free to drop us a comment! You can email us at or call toll free: 1.800.829.5646.
