Father Mike Schmitz Brings His Popular ‘Bible in a Year’ And ‘Catechism in a Year’ Podcasts to EWTN Radio


EWTN Global Catholic Radio Network welcomes Fr. Mike Schmitz’s popular “Bible in a Year” and “Catechism in a Year” podcasts to its lineup beginning January 15. 

Nationally, the podcasts will air back-to-back in a one-hour time slot beginning at 10 p.m. ET. However, local radio affiliates who add the show to their lineup will have the freedom to shift the program to a time that’s best for their audience. Listeners are therefore   encouraged to check the schedule of the EWTN affiliate in their area. (Find your local affiliate here: https://www.ewtn.com/radio/affiliates-map.) You can also tune in on your cell phone by downloading EWTN’s free app.

“We’re very happy to offer these podcasts to our affiliates since obviously these are two of the most popular podcasts ever,” said Jack Williams, General Manager of EWTN Global Catholic Radio Network.

Williams is not kidding. Shortly after its January 2021 debut, “Bible in a Year” quickly soared to number one among all podcasts in the U.S., not just Catholic podcasts. The same phenomenon occurred in 2022. In that year, the podcast also reached #1 in “Christianity” in 47 countries, not just the U.S. In 2023, Father Mike topped himself with his “Catechism in a Year” podcast coming in at #1 while at year end, Apple listed “Bible in a Year” as among the top 10 most shared podcasts of the year.

Find out what all the fuss in about by tuning into EWTN Radio beginning January 15 to follow Father Mike’s “Bible in a Year” and “Catechism in a Year” podcasts, and start your year off right!
