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.

Smartest Mind on the Radio, Bar None
Al Kresta is a conservative Catholic commentator, so he is not necessarily everyone's cup of tea. But anyone who has the slightest interest in faith issues or wants to know what thoughtful conservative thinking sounds like should try him out. His knowledge of Christianity and social issues is unparalleled. There is more thinking in 5 minutes of Al Kresta than in 1000 hours of your average conservative radio. Come on in, and don't forget to bring your brain!
This show never ceases to astound me! Kresta is brilliant, and his shows have great guests and production!
What a great ministry!
Listening to this program leaves me educated on BOTH sides of the issues. I'm not left only hearing what the MSM is currently pushing. Thanks, Al!
