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.

Love it

It is truly an incredible show. And it’s so rare on Catholic radio. Most Catholic radio to be honest it’s not that good aside from maybe Catholic answers. The al’s show is a perfect combination of news and Catholic topics. I don’t know what’s gonna happen to you in the shower when you pass on
