I interview Jessica Wilbanks, author of When I Spoke in Tongues: A Story of Faith and Its Loss, a story that starts with her Pentecostal upbringing in rural Maryland and ends with an extraordinary journey exploring the flourishing fundamentalist Christian movement in Nigeria.

For more about Jessica and her work visit JessicaWilbanks.com.

Also mentioned in the conversation: Infamous Nigerian preacher Helen Ukpabio (discussed back in show 172) and humanist activist Leo Igwe (whom we interviewed back in show 181).
