BloggingheadsTV: The Post-Walker Fight for Evangelical Votes and the Looming Government Shutdown

Regular readers know I quote Sarah Posner of Religion Dispatches (she’s written extensively for many other outlets over the years) often on the many tangled connections between religion and politics. She joined me this week for the WaMo Show on BloggingheadsTV (Paul Glastris had a scheduling conflict after a Skype crash made the usual Monday taping impossible). Here are the segments of the show dealing with Scott Walker’s demise, the new landscape of the battle for conservative evangelical voters, and the odds of an antichoice-driven government shutdown. Note to podcast listeners: you can subscribe to a podcast version of this show via iTunes here.
