Where politics, religion and history collide - and it's not always polite!


Nov 4, 2018

The 2018 midterm elections are here! In this episode, Jaye talks midterm predictions, the Voting Rights Act, millennials and Gen Z, and voter suppression. Jaye also discusses a major think tank responsible for the current Republican agenda, and which supplies the manpower behind GOP presidents from Ronald Reagan to Donald Trump. Why does this organization have a vested interest in subverting democracy? Can the American people overcome the anti-democratic measures of right-wing politicians and save this country? Listen for more!
