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.

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).
