Michael Wear, former Obama White House staffer

We chat to Michael Wear, who directed faith outreach for Barack Obama's 2012 re-election campaign and worked as one of the youngest White House staffers in modern history in the Office of Faith-Based and Neighbourhood Partnerships. His new book, Reclaiming Hope: Lessons Learned in the Obama White House About the Future of Faith in America, is a fascinating exploration of the issues and opportunities facing Christians in politics in the US, told through his own experiences working alongside Barak Obama and his advisers.

We also mark the tragic events in Westminster this week, and let on a bit too much about our own views on Scottish independence!
