Mar 6, 2008 (PIDNEWS) — IT ALL BEGAN on March 6, 2005, when Derek and Sharon Gilbert rigged their Sony digital video camera to record a fifteen minute show called “Mytharc Radio”.
According to Derek Gilbert, the original intention for the internet program was to discuss the Gilberts’ books along with news and scriptures that related to the novels’ underlying theme of spiritual warfare. The couple had no way of knowing that they’d soon be hosting popular interviews with world-renowned authors and experts, or that their ‘little radio show’ would earn a weekly, worldwide audience in the tens of thousands.
Today marks the start of the couple’s fourth year with PID Radio (the original name, Mytharc Radio having been replaced early on). In the years since that first program, the Gilberts’ faith in the Lord Jesus Christ has grown exponentially, and they’ve expanded their internet outreach with Peering into Darkness News, a daily look at how the spiritual battle manifests into world affairs, as well as their own websites, derekpgilbert.com, and
Originally netcasting from Missouri, the Gilberts now live in central Indiana, where Derek sells steel during the day, while Sharon edits and maintains their websites.
What’s in store for the future? According to the Gilberts, that is up to the Lord. “Wherever He leads, we’ll do our best to follow,” Derek Gilbert commented. “Who knows? It all might change tomorrow, or we could still be doing PID Radio ten years from now. Whatever the future brings, it’s going to be exciting.”
