Mel Hostalrich [HAHS-tel-rik] is of Spanish Catalan (paternal) and Spanish Asturian (maternal) descent. His family originally relocated from Spain to Cuba. After Cuba fell to communism, Mel's parents escaped and made their way to the U.S. to pursue the life and liberty they left behind. Mel grew up in Puerto Rico and lived throughout the United States, Latin America, and Asia. From a very young age, Mel had an insatiable curiosity for knowledge and an overdeveloped sense of wonder. He lives by the following mottos: "I would rather have a mind open by wonder than one closed by belief"; "Be skeptical, but don't close your mind"; and "I would rather have questions that can't be answered than answers that can't be questioned."
Mel has a bachelor's degree in finance (BBA) and a master's degree in international business administration (MBA) from the University of Texas. At the age of 20, while working for a Fortune 500 company in the financial services industry, Mel became the youngest financial analyst in the organization where he served from 1987 to 1999. Prior to his corporate career Mel worked in television as a child actor, retail, banking, and even with McDonnell Douglas.
During one of his corporate assignments, while living in Mexico City (92/93), Mel met a woman who foretold his future with incredible accuracy. Mel actually hired her as a member of his team. At the time, being an open-minded skeptic, Mel dismissed the information. But as time went by, and each prediction materialized, Mel could no longer ignore the information. In 1999 Mel left corporate America and became an entrepreneur in the hospitality, wholesale, and real estate industries; and most recently, - by accident, and without any formal training or education - he is now involved in media broadcasting and journalism. Among all the predictions shared with Mel in Mexico, the last prediction stated: "One day you will inform the world."
In late November 2008 Mel's life would never be the same. Mel had a vivid dream in which he saw the words "Take Action" repeatedly throughout the dream. Mel was compelled to turn on the television that morning - even though he hardly watches the subliminal tube (TV), and especially, the mainstream media[opoly]. Every news outlet was reporting that the British Ministry of Defense, after 50 years of secrecy, had declassified information about an Air Force pilot with the name of Milton Torres who was stationed in England in 1957. One night, Torres and his wingman were ordered to scramble their jets and shoot down an unidentified flying object (UFO) the size of an aircraft carrier. Mel continued switching channels and was surprised to see that every news outlet had Torres on. It was as if the international media descended upon Torres but no one allowed him the time to elaborate on his fascinating and very important firsthand testimony.
All of a sudden, the dream made sense to Mel. "Take Action" meant that Mel needed to interview Torres. Mel found Torres' telephone number, but before proceeding to make contact, he knew he had to represent a media outlet. Mel turned to his wife for her creative assistance. He asked her for a radio show name that would encompass the topics of UFOs, the paranormal, parapolitics (conspiracies), etc., to which Mel's wife uttered the word "VERITAS." Mel proceeded to speak with Milton Torres on behalf of "The Veritas Show" and arranged an "interview." After Mel recorded the interview, he made it available on Friday, December 5, 2008 at a number of alternative news internet forums. To his surprise, thousands of people around the world listened to what seemed to be a radio program, when in reality it was supposed to be a souvenir telephone call for Mel. People kept writing to Mel asking when the next "show" was going to air. That's when "Take Action" took a new and deeper meaning. The Veritas Show was born.
Mel has appeared on History Channel's Brad Meltzer's Decoded, several domestic and international radio shows, and has served as master of ceremonies and moderator at a number of related events. VERITAS' main purpose is to probe the depths of the hidden and obscured issues that affect the very core of humanity today, and to find the answers to the primordial questions: Who are we? Where do we come from? Where are we going? Why are we here?
Mel's ultimate goal is to help humanity transcend from a state of ignorance and darkness to one of truth and enlightenment.
