EP5 - We Are In A Battle w/ Austin Quick, The Basic Catholic

Alto by Libertas is inspired by the Italian phrase "Verso l'alto", which means "to the heights" and is inspired by the heroic life of Pier Giorgio Frassati. Listen to conversations on Faith, Culture, Fitness and Mission-Driven Entrepreneurship that will help us pursue "the heights" together.

Austin M.D. Quick, The Basic Catholic is the President & COO @catholicconnect, an Ambassador for @turningpointusa and a Fellow @leonine_forum. He brings with him years of experience in the U.S. Navy, politics, and seminary formation. Austin is an internationally acclaimed Catholic speaker who is a convert from Judaism. Austin credits his Catholic faith for bringing him the most joy in life.

In our conversation we touch on various compelling topics, some of which are Austin's conversion experience and the mission of Catholic Connect LLC. But perhaps the most powerful part of our conversation is when Austin passionately encourages us to recognize that we have to battle for what is right and to not be afraid to firmly uphold the beliefs of our Faith. Austin is a great guy who loves God and others. I know you are going to enjoy this one!
