The GMS Podcast: Christian Nationalism and Other Fun Things

Dr. Anand Sohkey, University of Colorado

This week on the Get More Smarter Podcast, your hosts Jason Bane and Ian Silverii talk with University of Colorado professor Dr. Anand Sohkey about his upcoming book on Christian Nationalism and why it’s suddenly so pervasive in our politics.

But that’s not all! In this unusually-long episode, we also talk about State Sen. Kevin Priola’s Party switch and the odd Republican reaction to that move; our 7th favorite member of Congress from Colorado adds another Democrat to her list of people she wants to “IMEACH”; and we try to understand why Republican candidates like Joe O’Dea and Heidi Ganahl keep running in the wrong election (psst…the Primary is over).

Click here to read more about Dr. Sohkey’s work on American politics, including his book on the usefulness of yard signs.

    When Repugs took the State Senate in 2014, Priola was Still in the State House for an additional term.  He first ran for State Senate in 2016.

    He allowed Repugs to hold the State Senate for 2 more years from that point, because his win offset Laura Woods' loss in 2016.
