Adam Jortner is the Goodwin-Philpott Professor of Religion at Auburn University, where he studies religion, democracy, and the American Founding. He has written numerous books and articles on religion and violence in America, including The Gods of Prophetstown and No Place for Saints: Mobs and Mormons in Jacksonian America. Dr. Jortner has also produced several lecture series with Audible, including American Monsters (a history of American monster stories and legends) and Faith of the Founding Fathers (a history of why people think the Founders were religious conservatives and religious liberals at the same time).
Adam’s earliest career was as a member of the writing team for the TV Show Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego?, which replaced Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego?, and was recorded entirely at Kaufman Astoria Studios in Queens, New York City. He now lives and teaches in Alabama.
