Weekly Roundup: Bernie Sanders and American Civil (Non) Religion

Brad and Dan discuss why in this sort of crisis everyone’s a socialist (2:55), the fallout from the Burr/Loeffler revelations (7:35), and then spend the bulk of the episode discussing why Bernie Sanders would be a revolutionary candidate in religious terms–the first None President in our country’s history. They trace histories of anti-Jewish and anti-secular bias in the USA and discuss the dimensions of a non-theist as president(14:15), and reasons for hope–neighbors, neighborhoods, and the rediscovery of in-person interactions! (55:00)
