what is the SmartCatholics Podcast Network?

Our network is the only  one we know with a thriving community baked in. Plus bonus tools most Catholic ministries get excited about!

SmartCatholics is the fastest-growing community to support the mission and vision of Pope Francis, and the need for healthy, faithful discussion on important issues.

We have 4800+ members, and an email list of 10,000+ Catholics worldwide, with 20% engagement rates. (Learn more)

We help creators and catechists launch brands, create shows, and connect with faithful Catholics around the world.

Dominic – SmartCatholics’ founder – hosts 3 podcasts plus a YouTube show. During interviews with 50+ ministries, he kept hearing the same complaints and problems:

"I want to reach more people, and I can't do it alone."

"I love podcasting, but don't know how to grow my show."

"I'm tired of the anti-Pope Francis toxicity. I want to be a part of the solution."

So we’re creating a network – and we’re doing it with you first in mind.

a rising tide raises all ships

Hi, I’m Dominic, founder of SmartCatholics. My day job is in branding for startups and introverts, plus website and graphic design. But my passion is serving the Catholic Church. 

And in the last decade, that passion has grown to serve the guidance and mission of Pope Francis.

SmartCatholics started as an online community to bring faithful Catholics together. Now, this Network aims to help us all keep creating the online content that moves us.

But we’re not doing it alone. Together, we can inspire each other, give and get feedback, and grow our audiences. 

At any time, you can schedule time with me to go over your podcast, talk about your branding, and how all this ‘content marketing’ you’re doing can serve your business. You need to be practical with your energy, and your podcast should sustain you, not drain you. 

Whether  you ‘re starting from scratch, or have been podcasting for years, this network dreams of helping us share our leadership. 

Because you have a gift that many faithful and fallen-away Catholics hunger for: you have a voice. You can say what’s in their hearts. 

Together, let’s help each other grow.

SmartCatholics is excited to serve you!
