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

Christianity, oftentimes amongst skeptics, is made out to be nothing more than a fairytale but, in reality, Christianity is the most well-evidenced belief in existence. No other faith has as much proof of its accuracy than Christianity and the cumulative case becomes impossible to stand up against when faced honestly. Join us on Truth Be Told as we discuss the rationality and evidence of Christianity with theologian, apologist, and cold-case detective, J. Warner Wallace of Cold Case Christianity.If you have doubts about your faith or don't have answers to certain skeptic's attacks, don't be shaken, there are answers. If you are a skeptic, ask yourself if you've honestly evaluated the claims and evidence of Christianity. It takes strength and courage to look your world view in the face and see if it holds up to scrutiny. Christians, take heart and skeptics, take courage! The truth of Christianity stands strong through it all.Cold Case Christianity: Email:

The pandemic, which affected the whole world, became a time of fear, mistrust, misinformation and spawned numerous conspiracy theories. These theories are in areas such as environmental, geo-political, racial, and ethnic, just to mention a few. Today, individuals have banned together to form groups that promote these beliefs and have acted out these beliefs.
Hate groups like white supremacy groups and anti-government groups are increasing in numbers. What is behind all these activities?

Today I’m featuring a podcast by fellow podcaster Micah Gunn.  He interviews Todd Nettleton, Chief of Media relations for Voice of the Martyrs who speaks about persecuted Christians….and I mean REALLY PERSECUTED Christians.  
I have been receiving the Voice of the Martyrs magazine for years and have attended one of their general conferences in Indianapolis, Indiana.  I admire them for their courage….sometimes costing them their life. 
It reminds me of what some Christians have had to go through in biblical times to prove their faith. 
All across the world, and increasingly in western nations, Christianity is facing heavy persecution. Voice of the Martyrs is an organization dedicated to assisting the persecuted in furthering the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the Kingdom of God in hostile nations.
In this interview Micah Gunn talks with Todd Nettleton about some of these persecuted people he's come in contact with, the concept of persecution in general, and what our takeaway should be as Christians who aren't currently facing heavy persecution.
While Christians persecuted in faraway nations might seem distant and disunified from us in western civilization, it doesn't have to be that way. We all might have different beliefs on doctrine, but they can still provide excellent examples of standing up for your faith when it's difficult. This is a lesson that all who claim to follow Christ will need to learn as the world at large turns more and more hostile towards any sort of Christianity.

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.
