First off, as you can probably tell by the episode length, this is not a normal edition of the show. As Alexander was extremely busy with his day job "being a lawyer" and "defending Americans' constitutional rights," this episode only features David (for which he apologizes profusely). That being the case, we kept this one quick.
Thanksgiving was a bit more than a week ago, so we thought we might talk a little about the Pilgrims - specifically, whether it's accurate to say they were looking for "religious freedom." (Answer: depends on what you mean by that.)
We'll also delve into what the First Amendment means when it says "an establishment of religion," and why that's important for understanding the separation of church and state.
