Sarah Vowell: MAGA and Muffins

Sarah Vowell is an author, historian and self-described “heathen” who grew up in the bosom of a Reagan-voting, gun-toting, Evangelical family. Her parents were okay with their children’s dissenting views, however, because, as Vowell points out, there’s really nothing more American than irreconcilable differences. In this episode of our series “Monologue,” recorded in August 2018, Vowell discusses her very political childhood, and how she self-soothes against contemporary politics with domestic work around her Montana home.
