Podcast "Inside Sources" Highlights the Role of Religion in Secular Politics and Society

The "Inside Sources" podcast had three guest speakers: Jonathan Rauch, Anne Snyder, and Russell Moore; that discussed various topics regarding religion, politics, and society. Each person's commentary helped set the stage for their participation in the June 15, 2023 Religious Freedom Annual Review, hosted by Wheatley Institute and the International Center for Law and Religion Studies.

Jonathan Rauch, Senior Fellow at The Brookings Institution, provided many insights on the relationship between religious institutions and secular politics, as well as shared his hopes for a better balance between the two. You can listen to the podcast episode here.
