Customer Reviews

Heritage never disappoints on issues!

I've always enjoyed Heritage Foundation research and public policy papers. Now, I'll do my best to listen to "Heritage Explains" for a quick overview of important public policy matters from a measured, insightful, conservative perspective.

Look forward to more episodes!

Calm and informative

I love the Heritage podcasts. I can always count on an easy to hear voice that isn’t outlandish. H-explains is always informative with insightful questions. Keep up the good work!! I would love to hear more episodes about basic civics. The kind of workings of government that people have forgotten (or didn’t learn) since grade school.

Informative, digestible

Informative and rational explanations on the important issues of the day. Wether you’re conservative or not, this is a well done, concise explainer for real conservative viewpoints without the mis-characterizations of liberal media outlets.
