John Ondrasik of Five for Fighting joins the podcast to discuss his new web docuseries titled “Meet The Heroes.” We discuss the censorship he’s experienced for being outspoken on the Afghanistan withdrawal and what the effort to silence people means for society. Finally, we consider why more musicians, entertainers, and artists aren’t speaking out about the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan.


John Ondrasik is a songwriter, producer, and performer better known as Five for Fighting. His collection of heartfelt songs have found their place in The Great American Songbook and continue to stand the test of time. Selling over 2.5 million albums, including the platinum America Town and The Battle For Everything. “Superman,” the worldwide hit single, went Platinum and became an anthem for the heroes of 9-11. His standard “100 Years” went 2X Platinum, and continues to give every age group a lifetime’s moment of reflection and nostalgia.

    John Ondrasik is not just “of” Five for Fighting.  John Ondrasik IS Five for Fighting.  Really, it’s just him.

    I won’t be listening, but I hope you don’t refer to him as John Androsik as Hugh Hewitt and some others do.
