Burning questions, not people.

Heretic Happy Hour is an unapologetically irreverent, crass, and sometimes profound conversation about the Christian faith. Hosts, Matthew Distefano, Jamal Jivanjee, and Keith Giles pull no punches and leave no stones unturned. For some serious sacred cow-tipping, there’s nothing better than spending an hour of your time with us.

Check out our latest episode. It's our best one yet.
