A Great Educational Resource

by thehurricaneman on
Rating: ★★★★★

This podcast is a great resource for anyone wanting to know more about Christianity and the Catholic Faith, whatever your belief background is. There is such a wide range of topics covered by the show, and the apologists are top notch. I am especially impressed by how they respond to callers on the fly in a loving and compassionate way.

Helps me grow in my faith

by Don from IL on
Rating: ★★★★☆

One day, I listened to back-to-back Catholic Answers and Word on Fire podcasts and the point was made during each one that many Catholics of the post-Vatican II generation have been poorly catechized. Although I had been listening to Catholic Answers podcasts for some time, that point gave me an epiphany and I have rededicated myself to my Catholic faith more strongly than ever. This podcast has taught me so much about my faith and the Catechism, particularly in the area of human sexuality, which is so central to God's will for us. Most of the episodes are of interest to me, but I really enjoy Tim Staples, Trent Horn and Father Hugh Barbour. God Bless you and the great job you do!

The fullness of the true faith

Rating: ★★★★★

This is my favorite faith related podcast/program. The host and guests are top notch, they have solid biblical answers that repeatedly support the claims and teachings of the true church as founded by Jesus Christ. Highly recommended as a go to resource.

This podcast is very well done. Questions and topics are discussed and it is done in a very respectful and kind manner. The answers given are a big help to me in learning how to defend my Catholic faith.

Great defenders of the faith.

A great podcast for the faithful and the faith filled ...


by Deeday1998 on
Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

It’s been sooo sad to listen to Jimmy and Tim (two men I greatly admired) slowly sell themselves out to the Francis effect. Young orthodox Catholics on fire for the church have become middle aged modernists, bending and twisting and nuancing francisisms tell they pass as Catholic...crushing their credibility, and the faith of those pour souls who turn to them in this catechetical vacuum for “answers.” Truly, they are fiddling while Rome burns.

Great Catholic resource

by Me8213 on
Rating: ★★★★★

Clear answers delivered with obvious good will toward all. Catholicism is very misunderstood, and callers who sincerely question what they have been led to believe are answered with detail and charity.

Love Catholic Answers!

by Joe Pickett on
Rating: ★★★★★

For the past 18 years, Catholic Answers has been an integral part of my faith journey. It has helped me learn more about my faith than any church service or program. One part of the Cursillo method is study, and has been helped by Catholic Answers. It is not conservative nor liberal, but orthodox to the teachings of the Catholic Church. That’s why I love it!

Orthodox Catholic Teaching

by Burchgsb15 on
Rating: ★★★★★

Do you want to know what the Catholic Church actually teaches? In an age of confusion, uncertainty and relativism Catholic Answers stands as an invaluable resource for every one who is searching for truth. Catholic Answers was instrumental in leading me and my family home to the fullness of truth five years ago. Be warned though: If you approach with an open mind, you will be crossing the Tiber.

Great podcast

by Leo C in cheeseland on
Rating: ★★★★★

It’s a great podcast, and is really funny listening to all the non-Catholics trying to stump the hosts. I really have relearned a lot about the Catholic faith that I forgot since I graduated from parochial grammar school a million years ago. It’s inspiring to listen to people who are passionate about the faith, and I recommend this podcast to anyone trying to learn about Catholicism, or to anyone trying to reconnect with the Church. +nnDnn+

Very Informative Podcast

I love being able to learn about my Catholic Faith while I’m doing chores around the house. After several years of listening I have an incredible, basic, understanding of the Bible, Church history, Church Tradition, The Mass and The Churches stance on social issues. Life changing!!!!

A non-catholic opinion

by Beliek on
Rating: ★★★★★

Firstly, although I consider myself Christian (unfortunately Catholics don’t) I’m not a catholic. Secondly, this podcast is absolutely AWESOME! Their answers are insightful and true to the faith (as far as I know it). The content has helped build and strengthen my belief in God, Jesus the Christ, and the importance of Christian theology in our society as a whole.

Go to for answers about Catholicism

by Boney Prince of Nowhere on
Rating: ★★★★★

The topics are varied and wide in scope but also accessible. The answers are given fairly and gracefully with care for each caller. To claim this isn’t an accurate look at Catholicism is to be say it isn’t a look at Catholicism that You would like. It is a look at the Church and her teaching.

Thoughtful, understandable explanations

by Monicabush on
Rating: ★★★★★

My husband and I started listening to Catholic Answers Live about 4 years ago. I was raised Catholic and have learned SO much about my faith and how to share it from the knowledgeable apologists! My husband, raised Lutheran, will be brought into the Catholic Church this Easter, thanks to the explanations of Catholic teachings on this show!

Very informative and engaging podcast. Respectful of people who don’t agree and willing to delve into discussions and inform with truth. Been listening for over a decade and couldn’t go without.

True Catholic Answers.

by Claire&net on
Rating: ★★★★★

This is the best pod cast for Catholics and non Catholics alike who truly want to understand Christianity in its fullest form. No fluff, no platitudes, no political spin either. The Truth explained by some of the most brilliant apologist of our times. I highly recommend this podcast if you ever wonder why Catholics believe in such and such doctrine. I also recommend it to those who are Catholic and truly want to know and understand their faith better and more deeply.

I love Catholic Answers!!

by Darkside Ares on
Rating: ★★★★★

My wife and I owe so much of our faith formation to the good people at Catholic Answers. The apologists give loving and gentle responses to every challenge or question. The do an unbelievably great job of explaining some fairly deep theology in the limited time they have each show. I cannot recommend this show enough to anyone looking for a deeper understanding of the Catholic Faith. May God bless and keep you all near forever.

Understanding Catholicism

by Piszle on
Rating: ★★★★★

I am a cradle Catholic and I fell away from the church. Catholic Answers helped me on my journey back to the church. The show gives me a deeper understanding of the reasons why we believe what we believe. If you’re a Catholic who struggles being Catholic- don’t research other faiths- use Catholic Answers as a guide to understanding the deeper meaning and love our church has for Jesus Christ.

Laughably political

by James Patrick Schmidt on
Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

Love to speak with certainty about certain doctrine and minimize the importance of others. Selective reasoning at its most dangerous and obviously politically motivated. (Both in and outside the Church.)

Great way to learn about the Church

Cy talks & interrupts entirely too much.

by elib3 on
Rating: ★★☆☆☆

Used to enjoy listening but new host Cy Tellet talks and interrupts entirely too much. Uses up valuable air time that could be used for answering questions

Not political, just faithful

by LeoAfricao on
Rating: ★★★★★

One of the sad features of today’s era is the politicization of everything. Catholic answers are not left or right – they are orthodox. Catholicism sides with the left on some issues and the right on others. The Catholic Church was founded by Christ and these hosts are worthy representatives. Well done thy good and faithful servants

Really great.

by ReadingMidwife on
Rating: ★★★★☆

When I was contemplating becoming Catholic, I didn't miss a podcast. I learned so much and had many of my misconceptions corrected. Thank you so much for this well informed resource. It was a huge part of the reason I entered the Church at Easter Vigil 2016. Although I miss the former host, the new host has a wonderful, humble spirit and will be great.

Best catechism I've ever had

by Jeff from Minnesota on
Rating: ★★★★★

As a cradle Catholic, I thought I knew plenty about my faith. This show proves otherwise. Over the last year, I have gained knowledge and feel more comfortable in discussions about Catholicism, than ever before. It's nice to get the answers to questions that I've never ever thought to ask.

CA Live does exactly what it sets out to do - explain and defend the Catholic Faith. Obviously, various people may disagree with their positions, but they do a good job of presenting the position of the Catholic Church.
