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

This multi-episode series is about the history of relations between the United States and the Middle East, including both US foreign policy and the Middle Eastern immigrant experience. In this episode, Jaye recounts the early history of relations between the United States and the Middle East, focusing on the Barbary Wars, and delves into early immigration to the US from the Middle East.

What role did religion play in the acceptance of early Middle Eastern immigrants, and how did people of Middle Eastern descent become "white" in America?
