I, too, want to make some minor quibbles (but I do heartily enjoy the podcast, and its predecessor): - The Pilgrims were not Puritan, though they were certainly similar. - Several of the Founding Fathers were opposed to slavery quite ardently. This ran the gamut from big names like John Adams and Alexander Hamilton, to those FFs that aren't household names (Benjamin Rush, for example). And, while you point out that several of the Founding Fathers were hypocritical about slavery and human rights, such as Jefferson, I hope you will address that many of them were acutely aware of their own inconsistency.
