We hear reactions to the election of Donald Trump from previous guests Chris Hoke (joined by Neaners Garcia), Neil DeGraide and Trisha Ananiades, as well as future guest Julie Rodgers. Dan also briefly discusses Trump’s decision to select Reince Priebus and Steve Bannon for White House cabinet posts.
Well, there’s no way around it. We were all pretty surprised by Donald Trump winning the election. Where do we go from here? How do we reconcile while still working toward a just society? I share some thoughts, and we hear from author and podcaster Mike McHargue (The Liturgists, Ask Science Mike, “Finding God in the Waves”) on his reaction. What are we scared for, and what, if any, is the potential silver lining?
Writer D. L. Mayfield (McSweeney’s, Christianity Today, “Assimilate or Go Home”) joins Dan to talk about what she has learned over 10 years of living amongst refugees in Minneapolis and Portland.
Is there any other option? O. Alan Noble pops in briefly to talk about the recent rise of Independent candidate Evan McMullin, and Dan has a lengthy cordial debate with Libertarian Neil DeGraide.
