Our latest podcast guest is Katherine Stewart, author of The Good News Club: The Christian Right’s Stealth Assault on America’s Children, about an organization bringing religious fundamentalism to elementary schools across the country.
Stewart is an investigative journalist who has written for Rolling Stone, The Nation, The New York Times, and the Guardian.
She recently published a piece in The Nation about the movement to put a church in every public school.
We spoke with her about the evil genius behind the “4/14 Window,” whether a “Better News Club” for children of atheist parents is a good idea, and how writing about religious fundamentalism is like going back to a bad boyfriend.
We’d love to hear your thoughts on the podcast. If you have any suggestions for people we should chat with, please leave them in the comments, too.
