The election of Donald Trump came as a shock to the country and to the world. As his first Presidential moves shake the political order to its core, two longtime friends and rapidly-developing activists seek to find a path of sanity through a hyper-polarized country. Vigilant Radio was born as a kind of immune response to the chaos and uncertainty gripping the nation, and will do its best to break down what’s going on for other new or aspiring activists. We seek the unsure and the undecided, the confused and the cynical, and all those seeking a fresh start in 2018. We are Vigilant Radio.
