In this episode we sit down and talk to Palestinian/Canadian activist Siham Al Ramani. We talk about the ethics of hijab bans, the limits of religious exemptions, and pick back up on the issue of vitamin-d deficiency as it relates to head-coverings. Where does social pressure end and the law begin when it comes to condemning bigotry? What’s up with hijabi women always starting punch-ups in restaurants? Can Colin build a religion around violating health codes? Find out the answers to all these questions and so much more! Do you have cute puppy pics for us?

In this episode, Colin talks with @JoeyJoJoJr94, Church and State’s Own Anonymous French Foreign Correspondent to discuss the current state of the presidential election happening there, and the populist actors upsetting it? Who will win? Who should? What does it mean for Western civilisation? And are the French really just a bunch of libertines? We hope so!
In this episode Evan sits down alone to give his take on the recent Trump travel ban; he tells a story, and he submits an appeal. Does this ban reveal something deeper about the administration (and their kabuki theater approach to governance)? How do we keep things in proportion, and how do we best defend Enlightenment values? Further comments are on twitter at @EvanCMalone.
