Special Announcement:

Due to COVID-19 quarantines now in effect, we’re publishing full-length episodes in our free SPN Podcast Network and mobile app for the next several weeks. We encourage you to stay safe throughout this difficult situation and we hope these programs provide insight and encouragement.


Sometimes you have to choose the lesser of two evils. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the devil’s choice: stay isolated and probably kill the economy or ramp up the economy and most likely extend the virus. There needs to be a threading of the needle and our leaders should put aside the urge to behave like bureaucrats and act prudently during this crisis. And it’s up to us to pray for wisdom for those leaders.

Stephen RascheThe plight of persecuted Christians very rarely gets air time in worldwide media, especially so now that we’re dealing with Covid-19. Stephen Rasche (, Vice Chancellor at the Catholic University in Erbil, Iraq, joins us to give a clear understanding of how Christians are faring in Iraq and the Middle East.

John and Carol join forces to analyze today’s new economic and political paradigm. Things are changing where it concerns politicos’ behavior in government, the validity of buying gold and silver, and how headlines and perception fuel the market’s engine more than profit statements.

Kelly SadlerInevitably, for good or bad, politics seeps into a crisis. Kelly Sadler (, Director of Policy and Communications for President Trump’s re-election campaign, examines the relief bill, attacks on the President, and helping out businesses during this rough time.

Dr. Paul WilliamsWe close out the show this week with disaster and preparedness expert Dr. Paul Williams (, who stresses the importance of being calm in an emergency, eating healthy to stave off sickness, and the power of prayer in every situation.

John’s quote of the week:
You’re watching happen now what would happen if we implemented all of the designs that we’ve heard proposed in terms of taxes and carbon credits and the reduction of industry in order to stop man-made global warming. There’s no way the economy worldwide can even think about this for the next five or ten years as it climbs out of this mess.

On this week’s extra segment, we play a triple feature of noted doctor and preparedness expert Paul Williams. From 2010 after flooding in Nashville, from 2012 following Hurricane Sandy, and from 2014 in the middle of the Ebola outbreak, Dr. Williams gives good advice on how to prepare for emergencies.

What did We Learn from Hurricane Sandy?

120044 11/03/2012

John starts the show by asking what we’ve learned from Hurricane Sandy. The answer is a resounding nothing. Dr. Paul Williams, MD, ( returns to SOS for an I-told-you-so moment as to why SOS listeners must be thinking about emergency preparedness.

One of the surprising failures during Sandy was the New York Stock Market trading system, which was supposed to have a contingency plan following 9/11 in order to allow continued market operations despite disasters. So what happened and how does this connect to markets which are increasingly controlled by highly sophisticated computer programming instead of humans? Cris Sheridan returns to the program.

Then we’ll take up the case of army Lieutenant Col. Matthew Dooley, who received a negative Officer Evaluation Review for teaching a college class on radical Islam, which was offensive to Islam and Muslims. Richard Thompson from the Thomas More Law Center ( guests. This case will be pivotal in free speech issues for the future.

John closes the show with a news report from Nigeria where Muslims systematically murdered over 40 Christian college students during the month of October.
