585: The Overlooked Heroes of American Christianity with Jasmine Holmes

For decades most Americans have said other people cannot be trusted. The exception was regular churchgoers who reported more faith in their neighbors, but new data says attending church no longer boosts social trust. What’s changed? Why are political conservatives suddenly talking much less about abortion and much more about transgender issues? Young earth creationists and Christian nationalists are flirting. What’s the attraction? Kaitlyn Schiess talks to author and Instagram historian, Jasmine Holmes, about her new book “Crowned with Glory,” and the overlooked story of how Black Christians shaped American history. And Phil has a disturbing story about rats, slugs, and worms.

Compiling stories of black history in America snow rider 3d


okay... I admit it. I'm not an American (Canadian) and there's something I didn't understand (usually, I watch enough of what the humongous neighbour is doing that I get it, this time? not).

At 35:00 or so, Skye rolls his eyes and says, "Thanks Obama". It sounded, it felt like shade but what's the meaning behind it, please?

You can't say he didn't have a sense of humor about himself 😂
