Evangelicals & Politics

Everyone should listen to this historical review of Christianity’s evolution & impact on current society—especially before we listen to the upcoming Democrat’s debates.

Don’t forget you’re NPR

Steve Inskeep just quoted Yahoo News. Eesh.
Sometimes the style is a little too pop culture, with opinions creeping into the news, and reporters forgetting to enunciate. Still, a handy summary to start the day.

Love this pod

The run time is perfect for my commute to work, and I’m loving the weekend bonus episodes (even though I don’t work mon-fri).
