OA278: The Founding Myth (w/guest Andrew Seidel)

Today’s episode features a long-form interview with one of our favorite recurring guests, Andrew Seidel of the Freedom From Religion Foundation. He’s on to discuss his just-released book, The Founding Myth: Why Christian Nationalism is Un-American.

Because Andrew, Andrew, and Thomas could easily talk for a full hour (and then some)… why, that’s exactly what they do. We hold Andrew Seidel’s feet to the fire on the threat that Christian Nationalism poses to the U.S. judicial system, including an in-depth discussion of the future of the Establishment Clause. And if you haven’t heard of “Project Blitz,” you will after this interview. You don’t want to miss it!

After all that, it’s time for the answer to Thomas (& Andrew) Take the Bar Exam Question #125 on the admissibility of prior bad acts evidence. Can the prosecutor introduce evidence of the “Ol’ Switcheroo” on cross-examination? Listen and find out!
