Episode #56 -- Jim Bakker Thursday, March 22, 2007.  Twenty years ago this week, TV preacher Jim Bakker left his PTL ministry in disgrace amid allegations of both sexual and financial misconduct.  I talk about how Bakker and his then wife, Tammy Faye (pictured at the left) in some ways epitomized the culture of excess that permeated the 1980s.  I also share some personal thoughts about TV preachers.

Today's episode music is from "Celestial Voices," by Commander Yo.  Theme music is composed and performed by Marc Rose.
