A thought provoking and informative podcast. A daily dose of this podcast helps to form a backbone of truth to answer many of the difficult questions of the day.
The In The Tank edition of this podcast is enjoyable. The banter often reveals a deep understanding of the issues being presented. Many of the discussions and games are amusing. It makes for a fun and cerebral Friday.
Overall this podcast is a sound and useful podcast. Highly recommended for anyone with a Libertarian or Conservative leaning.
I learn so much from Heartland Daily Podcasts. I consider it my source for information not carried by MSM. I hope others will give it a try to balance out what they're hearing and reading in MSM.
Never Miss It!
Great podcasts and interviews by experts in their fields help me keep up-to-date on important issues. My favorites are the ones on Energy and Environmental Policy. With so much biased misinformation in the popular media, this podcast gives you the facts.
