Frequently Asked Questions

What is The Merry Beggars?

The Merry Beggars is the entertainment division of Relevant Radio, a Catholic radio network in the United States with over 190 radio stations reaching a potential audience of 250 million souls.

Is your content really free?

It is! 100% free. Forever. We're able to provide our shows for free due to the generous benefactors behind Relevant Radio and The Merry Beggars. Because of their vision, we're able to create original shows and provide them totally free of charge.

We will never sell or share your email address (or personal information) to anyone. If you like our programming and content, you can make a donation and support us producing new shows here.

How often do you add new content?

We are adding new content monthly and, as we gain momentum, we will be adding new shows weekly. In 2022, we'll be adding living entertainment, original series, and a host of original programming. Get ready!

Is your content good for kids?

It's great for kids. And for adults! All of our shows are produced for the whole family. We want our shows to be enthralling to Mom, Dad, young James who's gone off to college, Sarah in grad school, and the toddler twins. That said, you know your child's sensitivity best. There may be some programs that are too intense for young children. But there will not be inappropriate content, cursing, or other such tawdry behaviors.

Is this like a podcast? 

Insofar as audio, yes. In every other respect, not really. We spend over a year developing original scripts and have pulled in as many as 25 actors to record our full-cast productions. While some of our shows are simpler (Behind the Scenes), we aim to create immersive entertainment that transports you to galaxies far far away and into adventures you've only dreamed of.
