What Is Catholic Central?

You have questions about the Catholic faith and what it means to be Catholic. We have answers. Using a team of witty writers, appealing hosts - like Nick, Gabby, Kai, and Libby - and even some learned theologians, we’ve created shareable, snackable videos that teach the timeless truths and deep history of the Church with humor and heart. Produced in the Family Theater Productions studios on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood, “Catholic Central” entertains, enlightens, and inspires.

Gabby Estey – "Gabby"

Originally from Sacramento, California, Gabby Estey ended up in LA to attend the University of Southern California and has been in town ever since. When she’s not hosting Catholic Central, you can find her planning her next international trip or trying a new restaurant. She is still on a mission to discover the best cupcake in Los Angeles and will happily take recommendations!

Libby Slater- "Libby"

Slater earned a BA from Minnesota State University at Mankato, and a Masters from Saint John Paul the Great Catholic University. Also a singer and dancer, Slater has completed a Spartan Race, and uses the pain from that—along with large helpings of coffee and prayer—to help her get over missing Minnesota.


Kaiser Johnson - "Kai"

Johnson earned a BFA from the University of Minnesota in Duluth. He’s also the president of the Hollywood Chesterton Society. An elite obstacle racer, he came within a whisker of winning on the premiere episode of NBC’s "Spartan Ultimate Team Challenge.”

    “Catholic Central plays a much-needed role on the Internet. Not only are Kai and Libby great at communicating the truths of the Catholic faith in a clear and understandable way, but their presentation is also incredibly entertaining and the production value very high. We need more resources like this!”

    Fr. Mike Schmitz, Catholic priest and media evangelist

    “I really, really, really love Catholic Central. It’s fun, informative and easy to understand! It’s critically important to share the faith in such a way that is not dry or boring, or presented in terms that are not understandable to much of today’s world. Catholic Central evangelizes and catechizes in such a way that people are drawn in. Thank you!!”
