The Orange Wave Ep. 9: This is How it Ends

Some just want to watch the world burn. But for others, the end of the world is an opportunity to rebuild it in their image. On this penultimate episode, Brad explores how global kleptocrats, Donald Trump, and Christian Reconstructionists all view the end of the world as a chance for power and control. It is the simplest and scariest explanation of why the Religious Right continues to support the 45th president–they both want to destroy the world. This episode contains an interview with Prof. Julie Ingersoll, author of Building God’s Kingdom: Inside the World of Christian Reconstruction.
