Politics and religion. Two things you're not supposed to talk about, because whenever people do it seems to end up in arguments😠, fights👊 and - worst of all - flame wars on social media🔥🔥🔥

What you really need is some calm, objective and informed chat from two people who've been in the game long enough to know what they're talking about. Unfortunately, you've got us instead ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

The Holy Political Podcast is a fortnightly podcast about Christianity and politics. We interview some of the most interesting and impressive Christians in UK politics today, discuss political questions affecting Christians, and look at the good, bad and bizarre ways Christians get involved in politics.

It's mainly accurate, somewhat entertaining, and hopefully helpful. Give it a try! 🎧👌😁

Ben Ryan, Head of Research at the think-tank Theos (which focuses on religion and the public square) joins us to talk about the Theos Annual Lecture, given last week by Michael Gove, and about 'Christianism' and how populist parties across Europe may be co-opting the language and symbols of Christianity.

Plus, we chat about Brexit cos, you know, it's hard not to.
