Just what I was looking for!

Australian here. After spending much time over the years trying to navigate far right US politics and realising the massive influence of the Christian Right, this podcast has been so helpful and informative. I can see the Christian Right making headway’s in politics here ( I mean we do have a Pentecostal PM) and I’m interested in understanding their agenda. This podcast really pulls a lot of those strands together. Thanks for your great work!
