About Joe McClane

Joe McClane, affectionately known online as “The Catholic Hack,” is the founder and President of ChiRho Impact Media, as well as the General Manger of KSHJ 1430 AM Catholic radio in Houston. Joe also hosts the weekly morning drive-time talk show (and podcast) “Evangelium Live” on the Guadalupe Radio Network every Monday morning at 8am (streamed live on FB & YouTube).

Prior to that, Joe was the Director and Events Coordinator for the Fullness Of Truth Catholic Evangelization Ministries, planning and executing large apologetics conferences throughout Texas and Louisiana. He worked with the most dynamic and engaging Catholic speakers in the Church today. Names such as Dr. Scott Hahn, Deacon Harold Burke-Sivers, Fr. Bill Casey, Fr. Donald Calloway, Johnnette Benkovic, Tim Staples, Patrick Madrid, Doug Barry, Steve Ray, and many more.

Additionally, Joe authored “Muscle Memory: Beating the Porn Temptation,” as well as the first chapter of “Delivered” published by Catholic Answers. In 2007, Joe started CatholicHack.com, where his motto is “to be the donkey Jesus rides today”, in an effort to leverage new media in the pursuit of evangelizing the world with the Good News. His podcast, “The Catholic Hack,” earned a five star rating, with 150 reviews on iTunes and enjoyed an average of five thousand downloads per week (yr. 2007-2009). He went on to co-host “Finding Your Keys” on Ave Maria Radio, produce the “Behold the Man” podcast (also distributed on several radio networks) before taking the position at the Guadalupe Radio Network.

Joe also has 11,370 followers on his personal Facebook page and 6,511 subscribers and 891,981 views across two of his YouTube channels. You can also find him on LinkedIn, Twitter and Instagram as well.

His all-time favorite thing to do for the Lord is speaking… to all but especially to Catholic men. This ministry is truly near and dear to his heart. Joe has been blessed to travel and speak across the USA and halfway around the world at conferences, retreats, parishes, small groups and events of all kinds – professionally – since 2008. The topics he speaks most frequently on are on his own conversion story, how God saved him from pornography, leadership, evangelization, the masculine genius, ministry marketing and audience development.

Through his work in broadcasting, podcasting, video production, blogging, speaking, and writing, Joe has shared and defended the Catholic faith with thousands around the globe. Joe converted to the Catholic faith in 1999 and was married to his wife Michelle in 2000. They live in Houston with their six children and several pets.
