About

Hi, I'm Thad Crouch.

How'd you like to prove to your friends that you're an associate producer supporting podcast conversations that will change public conversations about peace by:

Unmasking Militarism,
Creating a Culture of Conscience,
Including War as a Respect Life Issue,
and Promoting a Just Peace Ethic.


These are my four priorities for the purpose beyond the podcast: transitioning to a world beyond war that builds and maintains peace.  

I've got 25 years of volunteer and paid leadership experience in peace & justice activism under my belt (and a bit of belly hanging over my belt) so I personally know and get podcast guest commitments from many national and even some global peace organizers and influencers.

I'm a U.S. Army Veteran for peace with an Expert Infantryman's Badge and Airborne Wings who did support work for the School of the Americas and eventually moved beyond partisan angry “peace" activist into a more peaceful activist through prayer, powerful encounters, conversations, self-examination, and a desire for effective results. 

I spent years among activists who show up like last-minute "oncologists" reacting to a "Stage IV" international conflict with a prognosis of war. Drastic "surgery" and desperate last resort "clinical trials" are often like ineffective protests, marches, and acts of civil disobedience. Ineffective because they are not connected to what is needed: larger, broader, organized, strategic, and sustained public health plans for peace.

Sure, sometimes we DO need last-minute action and highly skilled brave ”surgical” peace teams who can improvise creative peacemaking in life-threatening situations. They'll be among our podcast guests along with "preventive medicine specialists” and the “public health workers” of peace -- who advance the public conversation beyond both Left/Right and Just War/pacifist stereotypes toward peacemaking and peacebuilding.

Please consider becoming a patron, so I can focus more time on producing two or more public episodes per month and also on the peace work beyond the podcast.


I want you to feel very good about contributing to conversations that happen within and beyond those episodes, so I'll let patrons in on behind-the-scenes activities about the podcast and progress towards a world beyond war. I'll be creating other perks and goodies to show my appreciation during this Spring. 

Take a listen, share episodes, follow Choose Life Abort War Podcast for Peace's Facebook page, and thanks for visiting this Patreon page. 

May our hearts welcome the challenges as well as the comforts of peace and love,
Thad
