About Us

On Preach, host Lee Hale sits down with people from all walks of life and all religions. You’ll hear people talk honestly about their doubts and beliefs. How they wrestle with life’s big questions. And the way spirituality intersects with their daily struggles and joys.

These days, especially on social media, the word “Preach” is used as a way to encourage someone to share their story. To validate. To tell them that they deserve to be heard. That’s what this show is about. Empowering the people — some of them famous, all of them fascinating — who live in the messy middle of faith. Because we’re all hungry for more frank, fun conversations about how we make sense of life. From PRX and KUER.
