    James Davison Hunter and Pete Wehner: Democracy in Dark Times

    James Davison Hunter and Pete Wehner: Democracy in Dark Times

    James Davison Hunter, one of the nation's foremost sociologists, sits down with NYT and Atlantic contributor Pete Wehner for a big-think conversation about our present cultural moment. A new IASC survey of 2,205 Americans, which James recently co-authored, argues that present-day American fracture along racial, religious, and political lines is more culturally profound and consequential than we think. With that springboard James offers a "climatological" view of present-day reality.

Magnificent

Josh Good and the Faith Angle Forum have created something extraordinary: nuanced conversations about religion. GetReligion’s Terry Mattingly has been shouting from the rooftops about the religion angle in journalism for years and now, someone is helping him fill in that gap.

Good allows journalists, academics, policy makers, and ethicists to converse on their topics of choice. When the two guests get to talking, something magical happens. An honest talk about the issues and fascinations about belief and faith. The guest list includes an astounding number of notable names like Emma Green, Daniel Krauthammer, and David Brooks. This is a podcast that is vital for a functioning society.

Genuine and insightful

Religion in the public square can be contentious with sides dug in on either side of issues. Journalists are often ill equipped to get the depth of concern of faith communities and faith leaders are not always great at illuminating their interests to the general public. With a friendly, conversational, inquisitive and engaged tone these podcasts strike the balance of being faithful to the needs of religionists who are put to answer relevant questions of public concern. Hence they reveal the overlap, as if on a Venn diagram, the humanity transcending and sometimes uniting the interests of people of different faiths and different political (conservative to progressive) persuasions
