New podcast appearance: Go Home Bible, You're Drunk
I talk about early modern fundamentalism's connection to early modern capitalism, and theobros!
Last week, I made a numerology joke on Twitter and weaseled my way onto another Irreverent Media Group podcast. I’m glad I did, because I had the opportunity to talk about theobros, one of the proto-theobros DL Moody, and how he sided with Chicago’s business elites during the labor unrest that led to the Haymarket Riot.
The early entanglement of what Timothy Gloege calls “corporate evangelicals” and the development of modern consumerism & capitalism is utterly fascinating. I quote liberally from Gloege’s book Guaranteed Pure throughout the episode.
