In understanding the January 6 insurrection, much of the focus has been on white nationalist militias like the Proud Boys. But white evangelicals also played a big part on January 6. Sarah Posner, author of Unholy: How White Christian Nationalists Powered the Trump Presidency, and the Devastating Legacy They Left Behind, joins the podcast to discuss religion's role in the riots.

Also: Republicans have opened another front in the culture war with the slogan “parental rights." Joan Walsh joins the podcast to explain how it's not just about banning the teaching of Critical Race Theory, but also about a ban on comprehensive sex education.
