On this week’s episode, we explore different ways of looking at our pasts, and what we recover when we do so.
Our first book is a must-read for anyone interested in religion in America. Delivering a perspective of religious difference in a country often described as Christian, Peter Manseau stops by to discuss his book, One Nation, Under Gods: A New American History.
