In Episode 19 of The Way of Improvement Leads Home Podcast we interviewed Martin Doblmeier, producer of the forthcoming PBS documentary “An American Conscience: The Reinhold Niebuhr Story.” The interview was part of a larger episode on “American Prophets.”
Ron Schooler, one of our regular listeners and patrons, passed along a nice review of the episode. It was the first one recorded in our new studio.
Oh my! I love the improvement in audio quality. I ordered the DVD and plan to use it with my church group. The episode also got me to get down my American Library Reinhold Niebuhr: Major Works on Religion and Politics. I read his October, 1964 essay, “Goldwater Vs. History. The last line could have been said about our last election. It is:
