A Radical Among Radicals With Dave Benner GodArchy Podcast 3.3

The American founders were radicals.

In the 21st century, America’s founding political principles seem pretty mundane. But in their time, they were extremely radical. And Thomas Paine was one of the most radical of the radicals.

In this episode of the GodArchy podcast, I talk with historian and Paine biographer Dave Benner. We discuss the radical nature of Paine’s thinking in its time and what we can learn from it today. We also talk about how Paine’s Quaker upbringing influenced some of his political ideas.
