Catholic Answers Live, hosted by Cy Kellett, is a daily, two-hour radio program dedicated to Catholic apologetics and evangelization. According to listener surveys, it is a runaway favorite on Catholic stations across America.
As a call-in program, Catholic Answers Live connects listeners to prominent leaders in the Church today—including scholars, nuns, priests, bishops, and cardinals—and touches on every aspect of our lives as Christians. You'll hear discussions on just about everything relating to the Church: doctrinal controversies, family concerns, social issues, evangelization, ethics…you name it!
Catholic Answers Live airs every Monday through Friday from 6-8 PM Eastern (3-5 PM Pacific). For more information go to catholicanswerslive.com.

Ratings and Reviews
The app generally works well. The other day it showed no new shows for the past 10 days and no upcoming shows. I searched the web to see if the show had been cancelled and found new episodes. So I deleted the app and reinstalled. This caused it to start downloading new shows again. Also, sometimes the past episodes don't start. It is irritating to have to keep trying again and again and again. I think it may be timing out because my internet is slow? I love the fact that you can move slightly forward and back in case you miss something. I think it is 15 seconds?
A+ content, some bugs, could use more features
I love Catholic Answers Live, but this review is more for the app:
-Love the downloading feature
-I like it how they started adding a list of questions with time marks for each episode
-Love how you can exit the app and it still plays
-Wish there was a way to “check off” an episode if you’ve listened to it
-For some reason I can’t listen to old episodes, 2015-ish or prior
-Wish the search option was a bit more sophisticated
-Quite often it will stop updating and I have to uninstall the app.
Great Catholic App!
I love this app! I listen to a show every night with it and often other times and it has never failed me. The Catholic Answers show are organized well and go back to 2008. You can filter your selections and download shows for listening away from WIFI.
Support was quick and helpful when I had a question about filtering. This was especially appreciated.
I’ve listened to Catholic Answers for many years. I have used this since it came out and it has never disappointed me. It has been a blessing.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
