Joe Basile is the author of the Sci/Fi novel, The Last Qumranian, host for History Channel’s, The Jesus Strand: A Search for DNA, a pastor at First Street Church in Fresno, and now a KMJ Radio personality because being mediocre at those first three things apparently wasn’t enough for him. (His words, not ours.🤣) Joe is from Chicago and grew up as a part of a mob crime family. During his brief rap career he became a Christian and then a pastor and God eventually brought him to the AMAZING Central Valley, which he adores. Joe loves cigars and golf and humans. He has three great kids and is married to the beautiful Lisa Basile, who is his favorite person to laugh with and discuss things like religion, politics, current affairs, and overall odd news.
Lisa has always loved radio. As a child, she and her brother would record themselves on cassette players hosting game shows, DJ-ing music, and interviewing up-and-coming members of their street. During college, Lisa met the love of her life and now husband, Joe Basile. Lisa produces and hosts a podcast with Joe called Politically Corrected, attends Fresno Pacific Biblical Seminary for the Marriage and Family Therapy program, and is a mom to three amazing humans. She loves laughing and making people laugh, spending time with family, reading for pleasure, keeping informed, painting, singing, and relearning the cello. Lisa grew up in Wisconsin where most of her family still reside, but has found a home in California’s Central Valley – or as she likes to call it, the Midwest of California.
