Potstirrer Podcast

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... Show More

CONTENT WARNING - This episode includes discussion of gun violence. Listener discretion is advised.

With the rash of mass shootings in the United States, including ones such as the El Paso, TX shooting linked to domestic terror, what is leading to these mass shooting incidents, and domestic terrorism generally? Jaye discusses a possible culprit, stochastic terrorism. What is stochastic terrorism, and can the violent rhetoric of politicians lead to radicalization and extremist violence? Jaye also examines the demagoguery of Donald Trump, and the appeal of Trump and gun culture to white evangelicals, and how evangelical support for both are connected.
