In this episode, Dan and former Senator Jim Talent discuss the timely questions: what are the responsibilities of a politician to the people they govern? What role does faith play in a Christian politician’s work? How should we adapt to the changing political landscape we find ourselves in? Senator Talent navigates these big questions with wisdom, honesty, and grace. He says that in politics, as in all things, the Lord cars both for the ends and the means.
