James Valliant on the Role of the Supreme Court, Abortion Rights, and the Sad Situation in the Sunshine State
Today we talk with James Valliant, author of Creating Christ: How the Romans Invented Christianity. We discuss the possible bad effects of the SCOTUS leak, and the worse outcome if Roe v Wade is struck down. Then we wrap up with Disney vs. DeSantis.
Martin is ending with a call-to-action regarding the new podcast app, Fountain, and is informing how you could send donations, based on the value for value model. We will pick winners in the four upcoming episodes of our show. The four winners will each get 50,000 Satoshis, to their Fountain lightning address (electronic wallet).
