Introducing the First Things Podcast
7 . 15 . 16
Annuntio vobis gaudium magnum! Today debuts its regular podcast. In every episode, our editors—Rusty Reno, Mark Bauerlein, Matthew Schmitz, and Julia Yost—will discuss what's happening in religion and public life. First Things
Episode 1 takes you inside our
August-September issue, and sorts through related news and punditry.
First, the editors tackle Trump's faith. Is The Donald a disciple of Nietzsche, as many pundits
contend—or of positive-thinking guru Norman Vincent Peale?
Then Carl Trueman, one of our sharpest writers, Skypes in. He disputes mildly with Rusty about the meaning of the recent outbreak of
“bigot-baiting” in Bakersfield, California.
Finally, the editors are joined by attorney Darren Geist, a critic of Amnesty International's dehumanizing
new policy on prostitution.
