Membership Guide – Listening Tips and Subscription Options

Welcome to Steel on Steel!

We’ve provided this guide to help you get the most out of your membership.

Take a few minutes to look around and familiarize yourself with our site in order to get the most out of your membership! We have plenty of resources, and you can always contact us if you need help or check out our Help Page here.

Daily vs Weekly Shows

Many of you are familiar with the weekly Saturday program aired on your local radio station, but what may not be well known, is that we publish all the interviews John does throughout the week on a daily basis. Only a few of these interviews make it into the roughly 80 minute Saturday show. This 2-3 interview Saturday show is what’s offered in the ‘Basic Access’ subscription packages.

Basic Access comes in two forms – with access to a full year of weekly archives (52 episodes), for $10 per month, and without archive access for just $5 per month.

The Premium Access packages offer the avid Steel on Steel fan an unlimited listening and viewing experience. The Premium member has access to the latest daily interviews, and our entire archive of shows spanning two decades. The premium packages also grant access to the Veritas Lounge, our video and downloadable resource library featuring all of John’s teaching videos, audio lectures and speaking appearances. If you host a small-group study, all these videos can be viewed by the group as well. Learn how to save 50% on group Premium memberships by hosting a SOS Group of 2 or more.

There are three tiers of membership: Basic – No Archives, Basic, and Premium. Each has its own special features. Here’s a breakdown of each subscription tier:
