You liked our last episode, Pew Research Center, so I wanted to bring you more. We were just scratching the surface on far-right political theology. On this bonus episode, Andre Gagne takes us deeper. We talk through an intellectual history of the key ideas — Christian Dominionism, Prosperity Gospel, and the Seven Mountains — and its key players.
This is a bonus episode and an experiment. It’s a companion piece and a loosely edited deep dive into the themes we discussed in the last episode. It’s for the real heads. If you like it (or if you don’t), let me know. If you want more episodes like this and other bonus materials, we’ll start making them more often. And if we have money to do it, they’ll get better and better. So chip in on patreon.com/dartsandletters.

This week, Darts and Letters was produced by Jay Cockburn and Gordon Katic. The lead research assistant on this episode was Isabelle Lemelin, with support from David Moscrop, and consulting from Andre Gagne.
Our theme song and music was created by Mike Barber, and our graphic design was created by Dakota Koop.
This episode received support by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research, which provided us a research grant to look at the concept of “public intellectualism.” Professor Allen Sens at the University of British Columbia is the lead academic advisor. We are also supported by a wider project looking at the rise of far political ideologies – that project is run by Professors Andre Gagne, Ronald Beiner, and A. James McAdams.
