I heard Dr. Ryan Burge on the Crackers & Grape Juice podcast, started following him on twitter, and knew I wanted to have him on HBC. We had a very fun time! After listening, you will want to check out his new book 20 Myths about Religion and Politics in America.
Ryan P. Burge is an assistant professor of political science at Eastern Illinois University. Author of numerous journal articles, he is the cofounder of and a frequent contributor to Religion in Public, a forum for scholars of religion and politics to make their work accessible to a general audience. Burge is a pastor in the American Baptist Church.
