Heretic Happy Hour is an unapologetically irreverent, crass, and sometimes profound conversation about the Christian faith. Hosts Keith Giles, Katy Valentine, Derrick Day, and Matthew Distefano pull no punches and leave no stones unturned. For some serious sacred cow-tipping, there’s nothing better than spending an hour of your time with us.

Best part of my of my week!
Three people talking about real things that matter and will make the world a better place. I listen, I laugh, I think, i reflect, and then I weave fresh perspectives into my interactions in the world. My faith is stronger, and I feel safer with expressing how God sees and feels about creation and all thats interconnected within in. This safeness is fostered from intelligent engagement with the hard questions.
