A few months ago, I decided that I wanted to launch a podcast this summer, mainly because I can just never find enough time to write about all the batshit crazy crap going on with the wingnut theocrats. I wasn’t planning on launching my podcast, which will be called “This Week in Christian Nationalism,” until the end of August, but when I was invited by Ed Brayton to have a blog here, I couldn’t think of a better place for what I wanted to do, even though the launch date of this site was a bit sooner than the date I was shooting for with the podcast.
The “This Week in Christian Nationalism” podcast, which I’ll be doing every Friday, will be a rundown of the week’s Christian nationalism news, and will also include updates and segments on ongoing issues (because some of these things just won’t seem to go away). My blog here will be a companion to the podcast, where I’ll be posting other stuff about the scourge of Christian nationalism in between podcasts. (And I’ll probably also be posting some silly shit too, because sometimes I just can’t help myself.)
I had intended my first post here to be the preview episode of the podcast that I made back in May as my contribution to a Harold Camping’s judgement day video marathon, but ran into a little snag with being able to embed the video. But, after trying about a dozen “solutions,” I finally found one that worked.
This preview episode is just a rough video made in iMovie, with me just sitting down at my desk and turning the camera on, but it’ll give everybody a taste of what the format of the real podcast is going to be like.
