Kresta in the Afternoon is what Catholic radio has been missing: a daily conversation - personal, authentic and human. It looks at all of life through the lens of Scripture and the teaching tradition of the Catholic Church. The scope is not limited to spiritual subjects...our host Al Kresta talks abortion, war, peace, dissent, old age, New Age, heavy metal, light eating, politics, church affairs, current events, family and marriage, movies and media, theology and apologetics, sports, crime and business. It's talk radio where God matters.

I learn something new with each episode

Al Kresta has truly insightful perspective on the issues of the day, life experience and is so well read. His insights are truly breathtaking, the guests are world class. Give Kresta in the Afternoon a listen. Oh and he’s Catholic too…

Digs deep

Al Kresta is an extremely deep thinker who’s coverage of all things Catholic is extraordinary. He covers literature both old and new, Papal news and interpretations of it, has super guests..Priests, Canon lawyers…history lessons of the biblical kind…you name it he has read about or interviewed someone who has. It is a fabulous show and network.
