Heretic Happy Hour

Heretic Happy Hour

Heretic Happy Hour is an unapologetically irreverent, crass, and sometimes profound conversation about the Christian faith. Hosts Keith Giles, Katy Valentine, Desimber Rose, Sandhya Jha, alongside producer Matthew J. Distefano, 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.
