Meet the Hosts
Ethan is a disciple who has committed his life to Christ and His Church for all of his adult life. This journey began when he experienced deep conversion at St. Isidore’s Catholic Student Center while attending Kansas State University. In the midst of this conversion, during his sophomore year, he started his podcast, The Crunch, now the number one podcast for Catholic young adults. This conversion led him to serve the University of Tulsa as a FOCUS Missionary from 2018 to 2021. During his time in Oklahoma, he met his now-wife, Emma. They were wed in 2021 and are now expecting their first son, Peter, in November of this year. He currently resides with his family in Oklahoma City, working full-time as a commercial real estate agent and part-time as a podcaster and tastemaker.
