Church & State is a podcast about religion, politics, and where they intersect. Join hosts Colin Aulds & Evan Malone as they discuss political theory and philosophy; interviewing guests, reviewing books, and engaging with contemporary social issues.
Colin is a co-host of The Honest Liars Podcast, which explores issues related to honesty, self-knowledge, and interpersonal relationships. He has a background in economics and is currently working on the book that inspired this podcast, Disintegration of Church and State. He does a fantastic Ira Glass impersonation and is a writer for Weekly Gravy. You can find his writings HERE.
Evan is currently a grad-student in philosophy. His research focuses on aesthetics, cognitive science, and the philosophy of language. He is now in the process of editing his book, Hunger: The Case for Genetically Modified Food, and is (slowly) working on a few other book-length projects. He is entirely the result of prior causes… and he made the theme song you hear at the start of each episode. You can find more of his music HERE.
