While the events of January 6th have been discussed and debated for two years now, in many ways, it seems as if the public is no closer to understanding what actually occurred that day. And even though Tucker Carlson was recently given access to 41,000 hours of footage, most of what he has released so far has been focused on disrupting the prevailing narrative rather than establishing a timeline of events and actions that clearly lays out what happened. And while most people have already made up their minds about that day and how and why it unfolded, those opinions are by necessity based on very little hard evidence.
In this episode, we sit down with Stephen Horn, an independent journalist who was in Washington DC that day covering Donald Trump’s rally. He spent the day on the Capitol grounds, observing and recording what went on and he has spent the past two years assembling publicly available footage to create a soon-to-be-released documentary that attempts to lay out as clearly as possible what happened and when. The goal of this episode is to deal with the complexity of real-world events as honestly as possible. One of the themes of our podcast is that Christianity explains the world and that through truth we are able to deal with and even understand difficult situations. Please join us as we discuss this important topic.
