Ask Fr. Josh is the podcast where I hear you out and do my best to help you navigate the tricky times in life when our Catholic Faith doesn’t give you an easy “fill-in-the blank” answer. On this show, we’ll listen to one another, problem solve together, and ultimately entrust everything to our Lord. If this is your first time tuning in, here’s how the show goes: Each episode, I'll address three to four of your questions. I’ll cover everything from Catholic teaching to moral dilemmas to relationship advice. I'm not perfect, and I can’t guarantee that my advice is going to make things easy, but I'll do my best to share what I've learned during my time as a priest, pastor, and friend.

I really enjoy this podcast! So informative!!

Upbeat and InTune with today’s Catholics

I thoroughly enjoy listening to every episode! I have listened to many other Catholic podcasts and even simply self improvement podcasts, but all seem to leave me uninspired..... until hearing Fr. Mike and Fr. Josh. Fr. Josh has met the masses where they are and allows us to come as we are in a Q&A format to be closer to God. Through real talk, beat boxing, and joyful glory stories I have grown and thrived in my journey with God. I listen to and share many of Fr. Josh’s episodes, because it is so meaningful and helpful in learning more about my Catholic faith. The more I learn, the closer I can be in my relationship with God and walk with Jesus. It has helped me to identify areas in my life that were not serving my goal to be close to God and areas that I needed to serve God more.
