How and when did this religious group become so intertwined with today's political issues? In this episode, what it means to be an evangelical today and how it has changed over time.

So fascinating! As a non religious person I really appreciate the exploration of the development of influence of this group in our political process. Well done!

I liked this podcast very much. But I think it missed the critical role of the Supreme Court ruling that prayer in school was unconstitutional. In my Evangelical home that ruling was far more significant then Brown v Board of Education. Also the role of the Scofield Reference Bible should have been at least mentioned in the rise of premillennialism. It was the textbook for premillennialism for many pastors.
