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.

NE to TX ,

NPR style show that is fully Catholic

I love how Al never fears to face the truth, no matter how uncomfortable it may be. It is so refreshing to have and sincere look at what is going on in our world, country, culture and Church.

Top notch

This is the best talk show, period. Unabashedly Catholic, erudite, thoughtful, fair-minded review of spiritual, cultural and world affairs. Wish we could still get it in Cincinnati. Thank goodness for the podcast

A great teacher

I learn something new every time I listen. I wish I could get it here live in Miami. But until then, the podcast will do.
