episode ONE HUNDRED AND THIRTY-TWO Wade and Mike sit down with Rev. Dr.
Paul Lehninger of Wisconsin Lutheran College to discuss the work of
author Colin Woodard. Woodard believes that there are eleven distinct
nations which comprise the United States (and Canada and Northern
Mexico). These rival nations have remained consistently cohesive
throughout U.S. history. Woodard offers presidential election results to
prove his claim. If this is true, it provides a more nuanced look into
politics and culture than the usually blue state/red state divide. We
hope you will enjoy the discussion.
And a big thanks to Dr. Lehninger for joining us once again!
