My podcast has you in mind. The varied content ranges from news, social issues, and perspectives of experts who may have particularly insightful views and give clarity on what is happening around us.

Our content is intended for a general audience—just like a newspaper or magazine that has sections for various people hoping that they will also read the areas where they may have a lesser interest.  So, follow your interests and discover new ones.

As in a newspaper, the front page is invariably for the news of the day and our content will feature unraveling news. We also want to talk about faith, service, purpose and meaning of life.

I call my podcast The Kubik Report so that it will be easy to remember and find. Just type those words into any browser address bar—and there we are!

We are also found on most major podcasting platforms in addition to the ones listed. We would love your feedback and suggestions to vkubik@gmail.com.

We have been talking about the topic of TRUTH for some time.  Seeking, identifying, and sharing what is true – in any discipline or walk of life. 
He gave an address to a congregation in Edmonton.  When I listened to it I told said to myself:  Dr. Berendt summarized extremely effectively. Most likely better than we could do in an interview.  So, I am sharing a major part of his message with you.  
I’m sure you’ll find this presentation thought provoking, insightful and relevant in the times we live.

Mario Seiglie recently (August 2022) attended and Associates for Bible Research Conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  Dr. Scott Stirling discussed the Curse Tablet found at Mt. Ebal near Shechem in Israel that confirmed the Deuteronomy 11 account of Israel of Israel proclaiming blessings at Mr. Gerizim and curses at Mt. Ebal.   This sensational discovery about two years ago gives not only authentication to the biblical account, but shows the advanced state of the alphabet and writing.

Estonian descendent Irma Faulkner tells me her moving and dramatic story of how her six-member family fled their-homeland from oncoming Russians in August 1944 towards Nazi Germany in a one horse cart.  On the journey the Germans even took their horse away away as they continued to walk and hitch rides as they headed West.  All six of them courageously survived hunger, bombing and other perils.
The journey started on their farm south of Tartu, through Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Czechoslovakia and finally refuge in the American Zone of Germany.  Hear a story of faith and Providence and what she learned and wants to tell you.  
God called her and her husband once they providentially got to Iowa.  What a story!
There are similarities to our families exodus and similarities to what is happening in Ukraine. This is an episode you need to hear!

This is the time of year we observe the Feast of Tabernacles, a time that pictures the coming world, called the Kingdom of God on the earth. 
No more evil.  No more crying, no more tears.  A time of rejoicing as this world’s governments are replaced with the Kingdom of God..
I want to replay a message I gave seven years ago in Sevierville, TN entitled "God’s Gentleman."
It is an exposition of Psalm 15 the second most popular Psalm after Psalm 23,   "The Lord is My Shepherd."  This Psalm describes the kind of person who will inherit the Kingdom of God and live forever. 
I hope that you find this of value.
