Where politics, religion and history collide - and it's not always polite! Political opinion podcast hosted by former political science instructor and current political observer Jaye Pool. Left-leaning yet not perfectly bound by ideology. Historical context with a dose of progressive Christianity in the mix. #StirThePot #Resist #p2 #progressiveChristian #Exvangelical

It's a new year, and Jaye ushers in 2019 with thoughts on the government shutdown, advice for the Democratic Party regarding the 2020 presidential election, and a read on Vice President Mike Pence. What makes Pence worse than Trump, and why would a Pence presidency be worse for the United States than Trump remaining in office?
