    4 - George Waldner: Can we still save the University?

    In this episode of Liberty & Wine, Anne talks with former President at York College Pennsylvania Dr. George Waldner about the state of higher education in North America today. How did Collectivism manage to overtake our colleges and universities to the extent that student life today resembles a flash-back to China’s Cultural Revolution with students living in perpetual fear of bullying and cancellation by the Woke gangs on campus? And what - if anything - can we do to reverse the trend?

    The wine George has chosen for this episode is a William Fevre Chablis, Champs Royaux 2019. Tune in to hear his heartwarming story about how he and his wife came to love this wine, and to hear our wine expert, Malcolm Jolly, humorously unravel some of the complex mystery of the white Burgundy wines.

So clear and interesting

I love Michel's approach to the subjects. You quickly understand the economic subjects. The libertarian aspect is also very interesting and refreshing.

First episode, wide array of mistakes

I get that podcasts are not created to be teaching material but starting the first episode making a case of billionaires more able to invest money for the benefits of society than the government and that if a billionaire wants to pay taxes it is to be a get more influence is just asking to be corrected. Having control over billions of invested dollars give you leverage not paying taxes… and as for equality of opportunity, the more rich billionaires choose where the money can go, the less there is. Anyway, the show is well made but nuances would be are great. I am leaving a 3stars, please challenge yourself with less complacent guests.
