A podcast on religion and politics hosted by Daniel Miller and Bradley Onishi, ex-ministers who are now scholars of religion.

Hitler, Trump, and the Danger of Failed Coups

Brad is joined by Dr. Richard Steigmann-Gall, a historian and expert in Nazi Germany. They compare Hitler’s failed coup of 1923 and the Jan. 6 Insurrection at the US Capitol. The discussion focuses on several themes present in 1923 Germany and 2021 USA: 

  • Cultural resentment 
  • Right-wing authoritarianism 
  • Extra-military militias 
  • The danger of unity with fascists
  • Christianity as a marker of cultural identity
