Public Theologians

75 EpisodesProduced by Casey HobbsWebsite

Christian theology animates leftist political action. A conversation among socialists, the Christian Left, fellow travelers and beloved comrades.


Chris Nelson - Citizen Activist

Chris Nelson joins Casey for a second time. Chris found out that a private mega-prison was set to be built right around the corner from his childhood home and he got busy hounding small-town Alabama council meetings,, canvassing neighborhoods and spending every spare moment fighting against the state and corporate powers that be. Thanks to Chris' efforts and that of numerous other activists and community groups, popular sentiment forced large banks to pull out of this insanely immoral investment opportunity. 

Chris shares valuable lessons learned, what to look out for in the next (zombie) phase of Gov. Kay Ivey's mega-prison plan and the unglamorous work of showing up where injustice is being done. While this focuses on super-local Alabama politics Chris' story highlights the need for all of us to bring what we have to the fight for justice.
