As technology has advanced so have the resources available to Catholics today to enrich their faith. One such area of growth has been in the area of podcasts. Across all genres, the number of people listening to podcasts and those creating the content for podcasts has increased significantly in recent years.
Riding that wave of growth is an apostolate that began in Lexington. Kentucky but now reaches all corners of the United States and beyond.
