This week on Beliefs, we return to an earlier conversation with scholar and writer Susan Jacoby.

Secularism and atheism find a full-throated defense in this episode. Jacoby takes us on a journey to where we were just one year ago: presidential politics on the rise as the election cycle kicked off, the rise of secularism, no pandemic in sight, and a world less complicated.

In this episode, Jacoby brings together the threads of various moments in history to demonstrate her view that religion and politics have never comfortably coexisted.
